    You have an hour to sit on a park bench with any famous person dead or alive from any period of time ... who would it be?

    And then have you one band/singer dead or alive perform a gig after ... who would it be?

    I would sit with Sir David Attenborough and have Queen (Freddie era) perform.

    I would sit with Brian Clough and spend time having a good whinge to each other about how shit modern football is.

    I'd have to agree with you @miss_lfc and say that Freddie would be the perfect act to have performing in front of you

    I am too young to have been able to have seen him live, I’ve always felt gutted about that.

    Probably Hitler. So I could punch him in the head after the hour was up, but he was such an influential speaker I'd probably end up being the first member of the new Nazi party.

    Music, something aggressive to get the ball rolling. Kayser performing 1919.

    I will explain. The Battle of Crete is my major hobby and obsession. Major Walter Koch commanded the 1st Battalion of the Sturmregiment in that battle and they led the attack on Maleme airfield which ultimately decided the entire battle. 1 Battalion were based here in Hildesheim and are the main part of my research. Koch was shot in the head on Crete but survived, after serving in Russia he fought in North Africa where he saved the lives of several British paras who were about to be executed because of Hitler's "commando order" and esorted them personally to a pow camp, a decision that possibly cost him his life as he directly refused to obey Hitler's orders and died in an "accident" in Berlin after being wounded by another head shot in Tunisia. Koch was a great soldier and a brave and honourable man who just happened to be on the other side.
    An hour talking to him would be fantastic for my research

    Satisfied ?

    Just thought he was a Nazi fair play. Still doesn’t beat Sam Allardyce or Elon Musk though.

    I'd sit on the bench with Bruce Lee and have a discussion with him about his fight with Wong Jack Man. Obviously I read his and his wife recollection of events there just seems some inaccuracies and some things that don't quite match though. Being a massive fan of Bruce Lee from a young age I'd like to think he beat him but who knows it should have been filmed and done in front of the press. The second question is more difficult would be something from Bon Jovi if Jon's voice wasn't shot. Gonna pick Britney I'd like her to do Toxic for me preferably in black outfit she wore during last tour by far her best song imo.

    I'd probably talk to Billy Connolly. Might as well have a laugh for an hour.

    I'd also want to see Queen live.

    Nice to see Queen and Freddie getting some love :-) I assume they’ll be a lot of people that missed out on seeing him due to their age.
