I was inspired by seeing a similar topic on someone's else's blog the other day, but I forget whose. Anyway I thought I would do the same thing only with hard rock/metal people. I list two metal people and you pick who you would rather have lunch with. For the living people, they would be as they are today. For the deceased they would be as they were a few months before they died.

1)Alice Cooper or Ozzy
2)Jimi Hendrix or Randy Rhoads
3)Don Dokken or Blackie Lawless
4)Vince Neil or Axl Rose
5)Bruce Dickinson or Rob Halford
6)Bon Scott or John Bonham
7)Robert Plant or Ronnie James Dio
8)Gene Simmons or Lars Ulrich
9)James Hetfield or Dave Mustaine
10)Lemmy or David Lee Roth

My answers
1-Alice, a really funny guy.
2-Hendrix, I am sure he would be very interesting.
3-Blackie, they both wear wigs, but Blackie would have cooler stories.
4-Axl, the only thing he ever killed was his own career.
5-Rob Halford, the best metal singer of all time.
6-Bon Scott as long as I didn't have to pay for his drinks.
7- Dio, it's a close one but I have always liked him a lot.
8-Gene, both have done things I have not liked. However, Gene probably has some funny stories.
9-Mustaine, I think he has more personality tham Hetfield.
10-Lemmy, I am sure Diamond Dave would be great, but Lemmy is a metal god.

What are your choices?

Hey... this is kinda unrelated to your post but what do you think of scandanavian metal?

1)Alice Cooper-No one can understand Ozzy.
2)Jimi Hendrix-Do I even need to say why?
3)Blackie Lawless-I'd spend too much time staring at Don Dokken's wig and it might be uncomfortable.
4)Vince Neil-So I could punch him.
5)Bruce Dickinson-I remember Rob Halford supporting Desert Storm so I don't think I'd get along with him.
6)John Bonham-Why would I want to talk to someone in a lame band?
7)Robert Plant-RJD would have to stand the whole time so I didn't look right over his head.
8)Lars Ulrich-So I could punch him
9)Dave Mustaine-I don't feel like I'd want to punch Hetfield, but I still don't like him.
10)Lemmy-He's pretty funny, it seems.

Alice Cooper: Same reason as you.

Jimi: What a legend!

Dokken: I've heard many of Blackie's stories on VH-1 Classic specials, but I'd love to hear Don tell me why he hates George Lynch so much.

Vince or Axl: Ugh ... how 'bout that Scandanavian metal?

Rob: For singing lessons.

Bonham: I want the truth about that Zeppelin fish story.

Dio: If I get the story from John, I don't need it from Robert ... and RJD is one of the most insightful metal guys out there.

Lars: I would get sick of Gene telling me how good he is at everything.

Hetfield: Mustaine would probably whine too much.

DLR: Lemmy's speed would make him a poor conversationalist. Dave has some good tales to tell (tails to tell about)!

Bob-Maybe you should have picked Bon Scott so he could punch you for all the things you have said about AC/DC over the years. Ronnie James Dio might want you to hunch over or stand a few feet behind him so he looks taller like he used to have his band do in pictures.

David- I think Don Dokken wanted complete control over the writing oh and George Lynch punched him in 88 and tried to choke him out the last time they toured. That may be why he hates him.
Lars Ulrich would tell you how good he was as well plus he would try to act hip.

Ozzy: I have never ate bat and I am always open to new culinary delights.

Jimi: I figure we can just sit around in a Purple Haze.

Blackie: I would steal his cod piece and scare the other diners with it.

Vince: Axl is always a no show.

Rob: He has cool leather outfits.

Bon: Every once in a while a liquid lunch hits the spot.

Dio: He lives in a castle. What could be cooler than that for a lunch locale.

Gene: He would have better luck picking up the waitresses.

Hetfield: I could do the talking while he grunts.

Diamond Dave: He could bring some awesome brownies for desert.

1)Alice- he actually can carry on an intelligent conversation; something Ozzy hasn't had since 1978.
2)Randy Rhoads- I can get Ozzy stories from him..
3)Blackie Lawless- once again, I know that Blackie can give you somethjing interesting to talk about. Don Dokken, I'm not so sure..
4)Vince Neil- if only for the reason that I can't stand Axl..
5)Rob Halford- this was difficult, because I'd like to meet both guys. But I'm a bigger fan of Priest, so I picked Halford.
6)John Bonham- same reason as David.
7)Ronnie James Dio- ditto.
8)Lars Ulrich- both guys are just a tad smarmy, but I've heard all of Gene Simmons' stories before...
9)James Hetfield- Mustaine is just too angry at the world...
10)David Lee Roth- in much the same vane as Ozzy, I don't think I could understand anything Lemmy had to say.

This topic has been so much fun that I will probably do a Lunchtime round two early next week.

1)Ozzy- I could talk all I want, he wouldn't hear me. And I don't do snakes,sorry Alice.
2)Randy- Maybe he could translate for Ozzy.
3)Blackie- He had a better rug.
4)Vince- Axl might get pissy and stomp out pouting.
5)Bruce- I have to know if he was castrated to hit those notes.
6)Bon- As long as we didn't show up in the dress.
7)Dio- He's just cooler.
8)Gene-Knowing 7 languages he could do the ordering anywhere.
9)James- I don't want to discuss religion with Dave now that he's found it.
10)Lemmy- Just because DLR thinks everything should be about him.

Ranea-I hadn't been abel to access your blog for several days.

bar bar a- Ah, that's the blog I found it on. Then the credit goes to you.

I am surprised that no one listed the fact that having lunch with Gene Simmons would be good because if your food was undercooked then he could heat it by breathing fire on it.

I had trouble with it all day on the 17th. But everythings seems o.k. now

1. Ozzy- I just think it would be a laugh
2. Jimi- Because he's Jimi
3. Blackie- Don Dokken always seemed so full of himself
4. Vince- I think Axl is a prick
5. Halford- much better stories, I think
6. Bon- I actually was never a big Zeppelin guy
7. Dio- Because he's so short
8. Gene- obvious choice for me.
9. Mustaine- I think he has a lot to say
10. Roth- should be a good time.

I might want to amend my Vince Neil or Axl Rose pick. I might have to go with Axl, because he's less likely to kill me on the drive home.

Bob-I think you could take Lars in a fight, but Vince Neil is mean, crazy and usually drunk.
