Afternoon all,

Nice and simple, what would your ultimate band be? It can include past or present artists, dead or alive. For example:

Jimi Hendrix - Electric Guitar
Noel Gallagher - Guitar/Vocals
Charlie Watts - Drums
Jack Bruce - Bass
Joe Cocker - Lead Vocals

Can be as weird and wonderful as you like.

That is one big a*s band! Its like a cool version of blazin' squad.

You are definitely right about balance, my example wasn't my ultimate band it was literally just an example. You have set a good benchmark!!

So hard to do, each amazing artist is amazing in their own right! And then you have to decide on the genre, which which hugely affect who you pick...

However, I'll do still living to make my job easier

Brandon Flowers - Male lead vocalist
Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes) - Main Female vocalist
Backing choir as needed - Imogen Heap (F), Mumford and Sons (M)
Carlos Santana - Lead guitar
Jack White - Rhythm Guitar and singer
John Paul Jones- Bass (though Flea is great too)
Travis Barker - Drums
Rod Argent- Still the best Keyboard Player ever

Dave Grohl as back up guitarist and drummer and singer
If a violin is needed - Ryan Delahoussaye
If a Sax is needed - Chris White

Freddie Mercury - Male vocals & Keys
Grace Potter (Grace Potter & The Nocturnals) & Emily Haines (Metric) - Female vocals. Both great.
Matt Bellamy (Muse) - Guitar & Vocals
Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys) - Guitar, Vocals & backup on Keys
Keith Urban - Guitar, Mandolin, Banjo & Ganjo
Chris Wolstenholme (Muse) - Bass
Patrick Carney (The Black Keys) - Drums
Jason Freese (Green Day) - Saxophone, Trombone, Accordion, Mellotrone & Clarinet. If needed.
Karen Fairchild, Kimberly Schlapman, Sarah Buxton & Ashley Monroe - Backing Vocals

I've seen many bands play with three guitarists so thought why not, I just couldn't pick 2 from the 3.
