No, I don't mean Concept Albums and things like that. I mean like interesting ideas for bands comprised of different people.

Only two rules

1. Only people that fall under the definition of Classic Rock

2. No dead people (Sorry guys :( )



One idea I'll throw out as an example

"The Whotles"

Roger Daltrey (Vocals)
Pete Townshend (Guitar + Vocals)
Ringo Starkey (Drums)
Paul McCartney (Bass + Vocals)

Freddie Mercury (Vocals)
Jimi Hendrix (Guitar + Vocals)
John Entwistle (Bass)
Jon Lord (Keyboards)
John Bonham (Drums)

The Wheep Queenppelin Experience

Bob Dylan (Vocals/Acoustic/Songwriting)
Jimmy Page (Guitar)
John Entwistle (Bass)
Roger Waters (bass)

Who? Its Led Pink Dylan

Lucas Townshend
03-19-2009, 10:56 PM
Paul McCartney(Vocals)
Pete Townshend(Rythm),Gary Rossington(Lead)
John Paul Jones(Bass,Keyboards)
Nick Mason(Drums)

Didn't put much thought into it,but I think this would be nice to hear.

Paul McCartney- Vocals, Bass... and whatever the hell else he wants to play
Eric Clapton- Lead Guitar
Pete Townshend- Rhythm/ Other Lead Guitarist
Zak Starkey- Drums
Billy Joel- Piano


I would pay a pretty penny to see that.

You're second rule kind of contradicts your first rule......

Geezer Butler, Tony Iommi, Bill Ward and....

I don't want Ozzy... Not Dio... I can't think of anyone living who I'd like in Sabbath.

How about Black Sabbath with Layne Staley? That would have been f*cking crazy.

Eddie Vedder-Vocals
Lead Guitar-David Gilmour

Bass-Geddy Lee
Drums-Neil Peart

Disregarding your second rule:

Jerry Garcia - Lead guitar
Trey Anastasio - Lead guitar
Rich Robinson - Rhythm guitar
Billy Talbot - Bass
Jon Lord - Organ (I love his organ tone)
Joel Cummins - Keys
Levon Helm - Drums
Nick Mason - Additional percussion and apple pie.

That would be some jam band. I decided to only use one member from a certain band. If I could, I'd add in Hendrix and David Gilmour/Mark Knopfler on guitar, but there's obviously not enough room, and I think jams are better with only one lead guitarist, as then they can take the song wherever they want. However, the thought of having Jerry and Trey onstage at the same time is just...immaculate. Maybe they could each designate who gets to solo on what track? That would be neat.

Robert Plant: Vocals
Roger Daultry: Vocals
Eric Clapton: Lead Guitar
Jimmy Page: Lead Guitar
Pete Townshend: Rythmn Guitar
John Entwhistle: Bass
Keith Moon: Drums

and everyone doing backing vocals because they do it so well

This group could have happen since they were so closely connected and freinds

:haha
Though looking at Levon's current shape, I think he should be the one sitting quietly in the back being fed apple pie and playing tambourine. Good call on Jon Lord, too.

Without the crust I assume

I'd Probably go for

David Gilmour
Alex Lifeson
Geddy Lee
Rick Wakeman (since I can't have Wright anymore :( )
Neil Peart

Name: "Rush with some added spacey bits (if that's even possible)"

I just don't think Gilmour's playing would fit in with Rush at all.

Levon, circa The Last Waltz :).

Yeah, I saw him on that Layla video, his voice isn't sounding too great. I love his prime period voice, though.

I was going to play along, but I made a list, then started replacing people thinking "well if he's on drums, then this guy has to be on bass", and it eventually turned out to be the 2005 Black Crowes lineup :p:

Here's an attempt at something different...

Richie Havens- Vocals/rhythm guitar
Jorma Kaukonen- Lead guitar
Chris Hillman- Bass/mandolin/vocals
Levon Helm- Drums
Benmont Tench- Piano/organ

FINE. I'll play along.

Eric Clapton - guitar, vocals
Steve Winwood - organ, guitar, vocals
Tom Petty - guitar, vocals
John Paul Jones - bass, mandolin,
Nick Mason - drums

I personally think Clapton and Winwood should collaborate for the rest of their lives. But that's just me.

The link to the ABB videos in the ABB band thread, where Levon is singing on Layla, and then interrupts Derek Trucks' solo :haha.

We would NOT want that for The Jams. The Jam Band? Grateful Band? Umphrey's Floydian Animal Collective Band? Who knows.

And good call on Richie Havens, Mike. Nobody I know other than my Dad and Grandpa even know who he is :(

Oh man, that's a shame! He played a little place in Covington last September and it was really, really good. He came out and talked to everyone after the show, and he's a really down-to-earth, nice guy.

Well then, my mistake. Whoever sang and played drums on Layla and interrupted Trucks' solo.

Although the video could have been from a different run.

Ever since they played together in Blind Faith, I knew they were two musicians that were meant to play with each other. They just complement each other so well.
