You have just been cleared for a covert mission back in time to change events in rock and roll before they happen.

I have signed up for December 8, 1980, to intercept Chapman outside the Dakota.

The time-machine is activated, choose your space-time coordinates.

These are all excellent choices. However, this is an incredibly expensive and risky project. We can't afford to have our operatives ending up busted for trying to interfere with air travel, kidnap rock stars, breaking into crashpads, this sort of thing, even stalking Jerry Garcia and trying to give him fruit-fiber smoothies, could be problematic.

Right place, right time, simple and clean. Like a simple warning to King Curtis to leave the drug addicts alone, or a quick swing of the Lousiville Slugger to Chapman's head, these are viable scenarios. Try to keep this in mind when planning your mission. You will not be believed, so be cautious and creative in approaching your objective. Put it this way, you will be in danger if you try to hang around Brian Jones's pool, for example. Or rush security to get to Hendrix before he gets on the chopper. Or go off on a hare-brained militant scheme to abolish disco.

Mr. Starkey, you don't need to replace the current drummer. Feel free to stay with Rory Storm & The Hurricanes. They'll be the biggest band of all time!!!

Mr. Zimmerman, your singing voice is just plain awful, and your guitar playing sucks!! You'll never amount to anything. Here's a one way ticket back to Minnesota! You failed the audition!!

Hey Buddy, Hey Ritchie, Hey Bopper.

This sounds like it could just work. Soft intervention, offering a superior option, I'll forward this to the Pretzel. The offer of a ride to Duane, good thinking.

We'll soon be recruiting for the Disco Prevention Unit, all volunteer elite force, we're looking at a highly trained detachment of say 10,000 dedicated rockers. So don't tip our hand with any bogus heroics at Studio 54, or we'll lose the element of surprise. Unfortunately if you pass the prereqs and actually qualify for and join the DPU, your chosen mission will have to be shelved for the meantime.

I certainly wasn't planning on kidnapping Jimi, my friend Brer Rabbit. He and Miles already knew each other by that time, I believe, and I don't think I would have had to twist his arm too hard to get him in the chopper.

Jimi and Miles were planning on playing together, but Jimi's untimely death prevented that. Not on my watch!

I once read a sci-fi short story where Jimi and Miles DID get together, and the music they created was so revolutionary and transformative, it vaulted humanity to another evolutionary level.

It may sound crazy, but it just might work. With that in mind, I ask the Time Machine Committee for a waiver on the "no air travel" clause. You have to think of the big picture here.

If it would be limited to a particular musician's life i could save it would be an impossible choice between Duane Allman, Jimi Hendrix and Rory Gallagher so i have to cheat: i travel back in time to a specific date, beforehand memorize all note worthy events i try to intervene and save them all by staying in the past and patiently wait for the time those events occur. All free time between interventions i will spend at the Fillmores, Monterey, Atlanta Pop, Woodstock, etc. and indulge in all that free sex that era was renowned for!!!

If the intervention / interception would not be directly related to a specific musician but to an event in the history of modern music i would prevent the invention of the friggin' keytar!!!

No problem, sounds like you have thought this through. Just didn't want you to get your skull cracked by Woodstock security when you were trying to get to the helicopter. We could work on getting you some kind of backstage clearance, maybe bribe Chip Monck with a bag of acid. Then you wouldn't just seem like some crazed hippy making for Hendrix, with some wacky story about time travel and Miles Davis. They might turn you over to Pete Townshend for the guitar beating.

We'll have to give the Hendrix / Bitches Brew Project top priority, I'll put in a requisition slip for a helicopter, probably the best way to infiltrate the landing area. Pretzel ain't gonna like this, we're way over budget already.
