    Yeah, I would also like to put my picks in the context of fanboy geeking out (ala arguing who would win between Superman and Batman) and not Monday morning quarterbacking or saying how things should be.

    But I would like to would not mind seeing some of these bands that I have gotten into recently.

    Damnation Angels
    Night Flight Orchestra (not really power or prog, but perhaps an oddball?)
    Effloresce
    Lorenguard

    Also,
    Devin Townsend
    OSI
    Ark reunion (I know I am in the realm of pure fantasy now)

    And selfishly since I missed them at previous PP's
    Vangough
    Seventh Wonder
    Riverside
    Mercenary


    It is funny as I do this list how this year's line-up looks very close to a dream line-up I would have done last year.

    freak Kitchen - Cooking For Pagans will be out by then, you know you want to hear Anal Bleach, live!

    Gno - I think they'd go over well, even with all the bitching! :Smokedev:

    Morglbl - Time to break the no instrumental band curse, the new cd is insanely good! Would be good for clinics, too, if you want to do that again.

    Triosphere - They will slay! :headbang:

    Devil's Train - They'd ROCK Center Stage! :kickass:

    Always thankful for the last 12 PPUSAs, whatever Glenn decides on, will be cool! :D

    I'm gonna go full "fantasy" mode....because I don't believe for a minute something like this happens:

    Night 1 headliners-Jon Oliva's Pain & Circle II Circle
    Night 2 headliner- One Night Only...SAVATAGE (farewell show?)

    :)

    I think if this happened, it would be the most epic lineup ever. In a good way. This also sounds like it'd be financially expensive with all of the bigger names. I have no qualms about being fueled by hope, however...

    I know it hasn't been super long, but I'd love Threshold due to the new album coming out, and the fact that I missed them last time they came. That was the year before I started attending ProgPower.

    It's always really interesting to read these threads, because there are a surprising number of bands whom I've not heard of. So I get to discover a lot of new music this way.

    I'm just happy we get the chance to put together these crazy lists as usual for one more year!

    Personally, I don't really care....whoever Glenn wants/gets to play works for me. It's always cool to see who he lands each year....some years are more attractive to me than others, but that's what makes it fun. The times I've been, I always end up being introduced to a new kick-ass band that I had not been exposed to before.

    "Should"...well...based on that word alone instead of want or needs...mentioned so far I only see Anubis Gate as a "Should Be", though there are a good few I really do not know. (btw, I like them, not in love with them).

    Sabaton & Mustasch would make great returnees as they are fun...fun is good.

    So...I was thinking....which for those who know me is rarely a good thing for me or those directly affected by my episodes of thinking, or for that matter, any one nearby....that Morglbl would be a great Wed. night small gig thing, or Thursday night opener as these guys are just so much fun and despite being a vocally challenged band they are a fun & entertaining live crew!!! (See there is that fun word again, twice...I like that word)

    Personally, I have very few I would put to a list, and those I would are not going to happen (see appropriate dream lists thread), though I suppose mentioning the above bands could constituent a list but hell, I suppose it is my post so I say it is not "a list".....where was I....oh yeah.....so, if I had to pick one, that at some point in time could actually be considered a realistic possibility, that I would personally want and need to see, which I suppose no one is making me do but is completely of my own doing.......Wuthering Heights.

    One quick last thought...If one starts a sentence with "personally", does one really need to then follow it with "I" ???.......just a thought.....

    Totally agree, they have to play at least an hour though! ;) There would be great music, the audience would have FUN, the BAND would have fun! Brutal Romance, the new cd, is climbing its way to the top of my 2012 favorite cds...

    as I'm FINALLY getting The Maids this year, I have no "list". I do have 2 suggestions that I think would be extremely interesting to invite:

    1. In Extremo. Saw these guys on Koshick's fest back around '99/2000 and they just blew the place up. They have an extensive catalog, an interesting angle, and songwriting chops on top of it all. I don't know much but I know they'd win a LARGE number of fans over at PP.

    2. Anthem. First of all, I'm not sure we've had a Japanese band so that'd be a cool angle. Second of all, this band's catalog runs for decades. Third of all, since about 2000 Anthem have just been releasing skull crushing melodic metal. Having seen the excitement that Loudness whipped up at M3, this seems like a logical addition to me.

    I respectfully submit for consideration. :headbang:

    Shit. I forgot to put AXEL RUDI PELL on my list. Definitely a "bucket list" band for me.

    I would still love to see something not even imagined possible, and get Mr. Arjen A. Lucassen to show up with a band, some singers, and do his thing for a few hours. I could then die happy.

    After ten of these things my "bucket list" for this kind of music is pretty small.

    Wolf
    Powerwolf
    Masterplan
    Royal Hunt (w. DC Cooper)
    Andre Matos (in any band, really)
    Anacrusis
    Death to All

    My must-have returnees are Voyager and Leprous.

    That would be fun. Then get Johnny Gioeli to fit in an acoustic Hardline show somewhere.
