    So I thought about who to pick as my last pick. The obvious ones were either Liam Gallagher or Axl Rose but with Noel and Macca there, there'd be a fair few songs where they'd have nothing to do. Axl could play piano, but McCartney is slightly better at that anyway so it didn't seem worth picking him on that basis. So I thought I'd go for a frontman who can play guitar, giving me an extra option when needed, and someone who adds a bit of youth to keep Helder company, and with this pick I get some songs co-penned by my other favourite singer, Alex Turner.

    Therefore I pick my, to quote Brumby, new BFF, the Wirral Riddler Miles Kane.

    So:

    Miles Kane (vocals, guitar)
    Noel Gallagher (guitar, vocals)
    Izzy Stradlin (guitar, vocals)
    Paul McCartney (bass, vocals, guitar, ukelele, piano)
    Matt Helder (drums, vocals)

    They'd make a ****ing amazing album, which for me is the primary consideration, but I've seen Miles, Noel and Macca live and they all put amazing shows on so they'd be epic in that way as well.

    So I win the draft, thanks for playing.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.
