    The Cortes albums are really killer.

    I think they were a local hit in Mexico.

    That would be a fun dinner - two ruthless homicidal maniacs and a (small D) democrat!

    Henry VIII would be one ruler who contributed greatly to music. And he spoke English, so no interpreter would be required.

    I'm not really sure but one for sure would be Peter Gabriel. Hell, the whole classic Genesis line-up would be a blast. I realize this is more than 3, oh well.

    I wouldn't be so sure of that. The English we speak Stateside today is barely related to the English they actually speak in England (our alleged "butchery" of their language is a staple of British comedy), never mind the English they spoke 3 or 4 hundred years ago.

    I was also more tempted to do the same but with:
    Napoleon Bonaparte
    Mahomet (to put a bullet through his face)
    Carolus Magnus

    ... and closer to us: Sophie Marceau (to see if I can get into her)

    on a musical front:
    Coltrane, Tyner McCoy and Le Grand Jacques

    As a longtime viewer of British TV like Monty Python, the original Office, Fawlty Towers, Dr. Who, et cetera, et cetera, I'm quite familiar with actual English. Plus, anyone who can read and comprehend the King James version of The Bible, or the works of Shakespeare should be able to converse with Henry VIII.

    Reading
    something in a given dialect, and understanding someone speaking authentically in said dialect aren't necessarily the same thing. When I was in high school, one of the English teachers recited a portion of The Canterbury Tales, as it would have been spoken at the time it was written, and my recollection was it was very different from the way we speak the words today.

    Mind you, Chaucer lived about a hundred years before Henry VIII, and a couple hundred years before Shakespeare and the arrival of the King James version of the Bible, so maybe that makes a difference.

    I find it hilarious that the British like to make fun of Americans for "mangling" their language, and yet, they do the exact same thing. You ever see the original UK version of Shameless?! You can't understand a damn word anyone says, because of the heavy accent.

    You can only choose 3, the rest you have to throw back, which one's?

    OK since we jettisoned the musical requirement how 'bout:

    Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha)
    Julius Ceasar
    Issac Newton

    In that case my non-musical three would be:

    Bertrand Russell
    Vaclav Havel
    Stephen Fry
