    Got to raise his bat to all four corners of the ground and then some. Hell of an innings.

    Normally this thread is depressing. No surprise there. So in an attempt to lighten the mood, a LOT of musicians have left us. What would be the line up that you would would want to see entering the upstairs (or indeed downstairs!) battle of the bands? One per band that have multiple musicians that have left us.

    I would have fucking loved to have seen the following

    John Bonham (drums)
    Malcolm Young (guitars)
    Phil Lynott (bass)
    Randy Rhoads (lead)
    Ronnie Van Zant (vocals)*

    *thought about Janis Joplin there. Plus Hendrix instead of Rhoads naturally

    Looks good to me Pad.

    Here's an alternate.

    Keith Moon (Drums)
    Lemmy (Bass)
    John Lennon (Rhythm Guitar)
    Jimi Hendrix (Lead Guitar)
    Freddie Mercury (Vocals)

    Loads more we could have had too. Dio, Bowie, Bon Scott, Karen Carpenter, Michael Jackson, Duane Allman, George Harrison, James Brown, Janis Joplin, Elvis, Gary Moore, etc.
    Oh my god! Whitney's dead? How's Michael Jackson taking it?

    Young and Gallagher would have been awesome. I also considered Cliff Burton for bass and Stevie Ray Vaughan for lead.

    John Bonham- drums
    John Entwistle- bass
    Tommy Bolin- rhythm guitar
    Jimi Hendrix- lead guitar
    Joe Cocker- vocals

    Sorted
    Why they will qualify: Nuno Espirito Santo is actually a tactical genius.

    Don't forget Jon Lord and Keith Emerson for your keyboard needs

    Would Jimi be the best choice for a band?? Jimi's all about being Jimi. He's not gonna shine as a guitarist in a band. You'd be better off with someone like George Harrison.
    Socks before or after trousers, but never before pants. That's the rule.

    I have decided to form a barbershop quartet, consisting of Scott Weiland, Chris Cornell, Chester Bennington & Kurt Cobain.

    Three piece:

    Keith Moon - drums
    George Harrison - guitar
    Jeff Buckley - vocals

    Ginger Baker was a better drummer but he was also the biggest cunt on the planet, so no.

    See, you're not going to have Aretha in a guitar-based band.

    In terms of female solo singers, either Dusty Springfield or Eva Cassidy.

    Janis Joplin would definitely work with a Malcolm Young guitar sound. Would sound like a female Bon Scott.

    Buddy Rich apparently was not as revered by the jazz fraternity as you'd think, his clamour for exposure and fame did not sit well with his peers.

    Kudos on the Steve Marriot recognition though


    ps. Ginger Baker was a narcissistic twat, loved Cream hated him

    He's just the drummer.
    Couldn't have Moon as I'd already got Entwhistle and Topper isn't dead yet surprisingly.

    Bass and vocals Phil Lynott (same birthday as me)
    Piano and Vocals John Lennon
    drums Cozy Powell
    Lead guitar- Hendrix

    That lot would make some noise!
    Not really a Wolves fan according to Tredman.

    Loved Buddy Rich but there's a story about him in the Debbie Harry book which is a bit disturbing (although she tells it as a lark)

    Anyway id have Sandy Denny on vocals with GG Allin backing her up.
