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)
My Gear:
Guitars:
Paul Reed Smith Custom 24 in Charcoal Burst

Amps:
ENGL Powerball I V2

Pedals:

You're second rule kind of contradicts your first rule......
Mother Earth is pregnant for the third time
For y'all have knocked her up.
I have tasted the maggots in the mind of the universe
I was not offended
For I knew I had to rise above it all
Or drown in my own shit.

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.

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.

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.

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.

The what now?

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

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 .
On this run? Levon wasn't there on either night they played Layla.

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.

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.
