Morgie - Eddie van Halen
Welalbidarned - Omar Rodriguez Lopez
Hurricane - Malcolm Young
Fertang - Alex Chilton
Night prowler - Bill Ward
Monk - Sam Cooke
BFP -Jerry Cantrell
Daemon - picked...someone
Spikey - Jonathan Richman
CPR - Elton John
BoyBrumby - Alan "Reni" Wren

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.

Mark Lanegan (Vocals)
Greg Dulli (Vocals, Rythm Guitar)
Stone Gossard (Lead Guitar)
Ben Shepherd (Bass)
Matt Cameron (Drums)
Spikey to pick in 2 hours or I will pick Scary Spice for him.
1) Ross is Boss.
2) See point 1.

Overrated XI M Bracewell, Burns, Rahane, Don Voges, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

Yeah, trying to decide.... Give me half an hour
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.
