Bass = Lemmy
Keys = Oscar Peterson

The "fly on the wall" appeal would be unreal, + I'd get to laugh my tits off every 10 seconds.

No vocals. Instrumental only. Even limited keyboard.
I'm a big fan of guitar, bass drums only (preferably power trio)

Ha ha! I think you might be the winner here! Except, I think this is the wrong thread because doesn't the inclusion of Kenny G make this a jazz band? hehe

..........there is a little band that used Bobby Keys for sax on "Exile on Main Street".
Great point Skul....in fact he played on quite a few of their albums from that era. They just wouldn't have sounded the same without him.

Mine? Can't tell you "the greatest" I'm afraid....but I know I'd dearly love to hear a band that consisted of:

Drums: Steve Jordan (groove-master general......the man "lays it down".....always!!)
Bass: John Paul Jones (Zepp, sessions, and after hearing him with TCV....how could I not include him and his 4 strings?)
Keys: John Lord (particularly that Hammond)
Guitars: Keith Richards (My idol....thanks for everything Keef!!)
Guitars: Jimmy Page (My "all-time" Idol....thanks for "just that little bit more" Jim....my musical life would be incomplete without you)
Female Vox: Stevie Nicks (to this day her voice still send shivers down my spine...I'm happy to declare....I'm in LOVE with her!)
Male Vox: Ok....I'm right royally screwed here....there are so, so many. Can I have a "revolving door" policy, please?

Interesting thread. Don't think i've seen one of these before. Though choices but this is what i would go with..

Drums- Shannon Larkin of Godsmack. I like his playing and he is just a beast live.

Bass- Jason Newstead. I could have went with several but like Shannon i always liked his playing and stage presence. Whatever happend to this guy anyway??

Guitar- Herman Li of Dragonforce. No brainer for me. I think this guy just kills it. I'm not particularly a fan of his band though.

Vocals- Brent Smith of Shinedown. Strong voice. Not quiet what it used to be due to his drug abuse ( i understand he's been clean for awhile now) but i still love to hear him sing.

Some very cool bands there but not always sure about the chemistry at times.

Jimi - guitar and vocs
John Cale - guitar, vocals, keys, viola and whatever else he feels like playing
Ray Manzarek - bass pedal and keys
Keith Moon - drums

I think those guys would have had a blast. They all had manic energy and thought outside of the square.

But I can imagine a group like doing things beyond Moonie's ability ... then bring Narada Michael Walden or John Densmore in for the sessions.

I have no idea - way too many phenomenal musicians out there.

Maybe... Andy McKee (acoustic guitar, percussive style) or someone of his caliber... There's really no need for other instruments in that genre.

For those unfamiliar with his style - here's "Drifting":

Nah Mike, although Kenny G obviously encompasses everything the pure jazz fan could ever wish for, jazz is just the same as rock, but much easier to play.

I'm probably going to be crucified for saying this but I really don't class any member of The Beatles as what I would deem a Rockstar , more Popstar . Maybe I should have said Classic Rock Supergroup ?

Just off the top of my head;

The Revolving Door Band,a little like the Wilburies

Cozy Powell/Richie Hayward ..................drums

Rory Gallagher/Carlos Santana/Tom Petty........guitars

Jack Bruce/Paul McCartney...........................bass guitar

Steve Winwood/Billy Joel...............................Ketboards

Tower of Power..............................................Horns & Percussion

Lots of shreading,groove,singing and most important...songwriting.The downside...too many bandleaders,and too many egos to fit on a stage,let alone a studio

Guitar - don't care.
Drums - couldn't give a monkey's proverbial.
Bass - that guy around the back of the train station.
Tambourine - entirely unnecessary.

That sounds like the band that would play in the waiting room of my own personal Hell - with perhaps one exception.
