Anyone who's seen them knows that local "Stout Irish Rockers" Blaggards' front man Patrick Devlin's natural place is center stage. But even he has artists he wouldn't mind stepping back for, so we asked him to list us a few in advance of Blaggards' free concert at Discovery Green Thursday evening with Flying Fish Sailors. 10. Neil Diamond: "I wanna dress like the man." 9. Madonna: "Good way to learn her material." 8. Dropkick Murphys: "Burn the bagpipes." 7. Bruce Springsteen: "Be nice to shed a few pounds." 6. Monty Python: WOW, 'Sit On My Face' LIVE!!!!"5. Slayer: "Love to put harmony on 'Altar of Sacrifice.'" 4. The Carpenters: "I LOVE THEM!" 3. Elvis: "I'd be able to help dumb down the lyrics." 2. Thin Lizzy: "Would be great to be useless in a GOOD band." 1. The Von Trapp Family: "They REALLY need me."
