    Didn't wanna give the game away, but yeah, I didn't think anybody would go for him first up anyway, so I went with a heavyweight like Page. Same with Angus, those two especially are pretty underrated around here.

    Oops. Omar Rodriguez Lopez on second gat/making weird noises with pedals. So

    Roger Daltery - lead tuneful yelling
    Jack White - Filthy blues riffs and backing vox
    Omar Rodriguez Lopez - trippy ambient guitar effect noises and songwriting
    John Paul Jones - taking care of the low end
    Jon Theodore - One of the best drummers in the world, has all the chops but doesn't feel the need to remind everyone about it constantly.

    Jerry Cantrell for my final pick, which leaves me with a line-up of:

    Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave, Temple of the Dog, Solo career, Bond theme) - Vocals, Acoustic Guitar.
    Randy Rhoads (Ozzy Osbourne) - Lead Guitar.
    Jerry Cantrell (Alice in Chains, Solo career) - Rhythm Guitar, Vocals.
    Cliff Burton (Metallica: this, this, also this, and all of these) - Bass.
    Danny Carey (Tool - see this and this) - Drums.

    What would they play? Who knows, but given the talent in that group it'd be something pretty damn special and very original, that's for sure.

    Sorry, for my last pick I'll take Sam Cooke



    So, my line up is (with stellar performances linked)...

    Sam Cooke (vocals)
    Sam Cooke Bring It Home To Me - YouTube

    Keith Richards (guitar)
    The Rolling Stones - Brown Sugar (Live) - OFFICIAL - YouTube (that's the coolest riff ever written)

    Beck Hansen (doing whatever he wants)
    iConcerts - Beck - E Pro (live) - YouTube

    Jeff Ament (bass guitar)
    01 Pearl Jam Oceans MTV Unplugged - YouTube

    Jimmy Chamberlain (drums)

    I'd love to see this line up play.


    If you have a listen, you'll see how it'd all fit together. I've created the ultimate band.

    Spikey, take your time, I'm not gonna be home for another 5 hours, and can't decide who I want last.

    Spikey to pick in 2 hours or I will pick Scary Spice for him.
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.

    OK, final pick being the Queen of Pop himself, Elton John

    So I've got

    Bob Marley (vocals/guitar)
    Eric Claption (lead guitar/vox)
    Elton John (piano/high notes)
    James Jamerson (bass)
    Stuart Copeland (drums)

    Old Reg's piano work would complement Erics solo's nicely, who in turn should jam nicely with Bob, sharing many a musical root.

    I reckon as a whole unit they'd do a rousing live rendition of No Woman No Cry, and could kick up a mean extended version of Layla too...

    Need a drummer, obvz. Was fairly confident at least two of my potentials would remain unselected.

    They were, ftr, the late, great Martin Gilks of The Wonder Stuff, whose ubermensch drumming on Dizzy is the finest on any UK #1: fact; & Mike "Puffy" Bordin of Faith No More, who manages to be funky as **** and still smack the skins harder than anyone this side of Bonzo Bonham. Oh & is the only white man to pull off dreads. Ever.

    However, the coverted stool goes to the one I thought might get nicked, Alan "Reni" Wren ex and current of The Stone Roses, whose funky drummer break set the drum beat for a generation & must be one of the most aped of all time. Even if he nicked it off Clyde Stubblefield in the first place, but that's another story.

    So we have:

    Jeff Buckley: vox/guitar
    Jimi Hendrix: guitar/vox
    Jonny Greenwood: guitar
    John Entwistle: bass
    Reni: drums/backing vox.
