Well I've been sat here thinking about this,,,,,
and I've come to the conclusion that I must be one lucky bastard.

Can't think of anything I wish I'd done that I didn't (Audrey Hepburn aside obviously, but that was never likely!).
One or two cars and bikes I should have kept, but nothing life changing.

Or maybe I've just got no imagination ?

I'm with you on this Andy. I made decisions that felt wrong at the time but as I wound through life's journey things have turned out pretty well. I regret a few of the things that I did but can't think of any regrets about the things that I didn't do. If there are any real items on my bucket list I hope that my life will be long enough and my health and money allow me to realise those small dreams in the future.

I am lucky enough to have achieved my main ambitions; had the career(s) I wanted, and along the way, done some amazing things, lived in a number of fascinating places; met diverse people from all sorts of cultures.
And now I have plenty of pursuits to follow, and knowledge to acquire.

What would I wish I could have done? Stand on another planet. Unrealistic in my lifetime, I just hope mankind doesn't stagnate and eventually we can go to other planets and eventually explore beyond our tiny little backwater solar system.
Otherwise I would love to be an astrophysicist. And play guitar like Jimmy Page ( or Hendrix)

I would be happy with Slash or Jack White as alternatives. But they both wear silly hats.

For me it would would be the guitar meister, Gary Moore - sadly no longer with us. Saw him a few times live - brilliant.

And, just for Dragon : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zr5OJPoJd5U

Roxette ; I love the sound of crashing guitars.

Crashing/smashing - near enough the same.
