In this day and age of Groups reforming which Group would you like to see reform.

Personally I would like to see Supertramp getting back together again.

Do reformed groups ever reach the heights of they achieved previously? For example we had Aha reform a year or so back, but they dont seem to have done much since.

The synics amongst us might take the view that groups only reform to milk us punters/fans for more cash.

That aside you make a good point though-Take That seem an eception to the rule though-their last album was just brilliant imho.

No offence but I am completely at a loss in understanding how an album by Take That, or any other boy band for that matter, can be called brilliant?

Rod Argent and Colin Blunstone who were the heart of the Zombies have been doing small venue tours for several years. They have also been including some new stuff as well as stuff From The Zombies, Argent, and Colin's solo career, plus his appearances on Alan Parsons Albums.

Difficult when we're not quite sure who's still together and what the line-ups are.

What about Led Zepperlin getting back together.

I am a big fan of this group-they made some great music all those years ago.

Is Rolf Harris going to do guest vocals on "Stairway to Heaven"?

Who's "zepperlin"??? Laughing

It's not possible, anyhow, because John Bonham's not around any more and he was the powerhouse of the band. It would be a bit like a band consisting only of Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey calling themselves "The Who". Nothing's ever the same as it used to be, especially when key members are no longer with us. Let memories be memories.

If the rumours are to be believed it looks as though Led Zep are about to reform.

Fantastic news if this is so.

Look out for a new greatest hits album which is about to hit the shops shortly.

I'd like to see The Sutherland Brothers & Quiver reform. Not only one of the finest touring bands of the pre-punk 1970s but some of the nicest guys I ever had the pleasure of working with during my tenure at the BBC.

Yardbirds, just imagine Clapton, Beck & Page with Dreja on bass, awesome. Very Happy

I can't find it on their website, but have a look at page 21 of today's Daily Mirror. It says they are to reform for a one-off gig.

I would love to see Dire Straits reform.

I have most of their albums-just brilliant.

Do others like their music?

"Brothers In Arms" the best selling album. Fantastic songs too.
