Drums- Keith Moon

Bass- John Enwhistle

Guitar- Pete Townshend

Vocals- Daltrey

( no one in this world can't stand or afford Keith Moon like Enwhistle, Townshend and Daltrey, if any other than these 3 players, either Keith would get fired or they all would quit, one of the reasons there are no so called Keith Moon drummers today)

OK, I was ready to give me vote for Crosby Stills & Nash and dissuade any Asia voters, but I get the gist now..

Carl Palmer, drums (easy)
McCartney, bass
Lindsey Buckingham, guitar
Freddie Mercury, vocals
Ben Folds, piano

This band would probably suck if they actually did a live show, but who knows?

Guitar- Eric Clapton, Slash, Jimi Page

This thread has been done before, but I'm too lazy to find it in a search so I'll just repeat roughly the same thing I said last time:

Danny Carey - Drums
Mikael Akefedlt - Guitar
Geddy Lee - Bass
Maynard - Vocals

I may have said Les Claypool for bass last time, but I've decided that's he's too overpowering, like black liquorice, any band he touches becomes too Primus-like (see Oysterhead).

Although I understand your sentiments the purpose of a Supergroup is taking already great musicians from other great bands , obviously the greatest Rock band ever with the most talented members is Led Zeppelin and I could just post that but where's the fun ?

John Lennon / Paul McCartney / Dave Grohl / Alex Lifeson

The Lennon/McCartney songwriting partnership is beyond reproach, Grohl would be perfect for those two, and Lifeson has great textural dimension and skills for days.

Funny thing about supergroups is that everyone's out of their element and despite that they might all be great players, there's absolutely no guarantee that they'll make anything worth listening to. I'm thinking the Terry Bozzio / Tony Levin / Steve Stevens stab at turning a quick buck (as Bozzio himself described it in the liner notes). There was 15 bucks and 45 minutes of my life I'll never get back.
