Let's say you have the power to create the perfect music band, with all your favorite artists. It doesn't matter if they're alive or not, and you're totally allowed to mix genres. So, what it would be? Mine would be pretty much like that: Paul McCartney (The Beatles) - Lead Vocals/Bass Guitar Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones) - Lead Vocals/funny dancing George Harrison (The Beatles) - Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals Keith Richards (Rolling Stones) - Rhythm Guitar/alcohol and drugs provider Keith Moon (The Who) - Drums Ringo Starr (The Beatles) - Backing Vocals/head shaker/joke teller Steven Tyler (Aerosmith) - Dancer/noise maker/fashion consultant :D

I see what you mean... and it would be great fun. It has been done to some extent in the past for the Prince of Wales concert. The one in 1987 was great. Unfortunately... all those guys are starting to get old now. Furthermore... you could only put them together for one concert... as there would be a clash of egoes. There is a French artist by the name of Johnny Hallyday who has the right formula. He gives some grandiose concerts in France... filling a stadium with 80.000 people three nights in a row. Each time... he picks the best musicians in the world for his backing group of 12 musicians. This makes it the best group in the world. All his concerts are on DVDs. The Parc des Princes 1993 and the Stade de France 1998 are memorable... each lasting 3 hours. That's 3 hours of Rock. He usually gives those concerts the day of his birthday. He was 50 in 1993 and 55 in 1998. Johnny Hallyday introduced rock n' roll in France in 1960 and he is a French legend.

Great question laridbz, I'm going to rush in and create my answer now, but I may want to come back and revise it later. My favorite musical band lineup is as follows: Ronnie James Dio - Vocals Steve Vai - Lead Guitar Chris Degarmo (Queensryche) - Rythum Guitar Ludwig Van Beethoven - Keyboards Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big/David Lee Roth Band) - Bass Guitar Neil Pert (Rush) - Drums That's a pretty good list, it was very hard for me to pick the guitarists though.

I don't know a couple of these guys (don't worry, I DO know Beethoven), but I completely trust your good taste. Besides, your probably know a lot more about music than me. And what would be a perfect POSSIBLE line-up? I mean, with only alive and capable guys, even if they're retired already?
