Create Your Own Supergroup

What's Hot
AlexCAlexC Frets: 1796
Simple game. Simple ‘rules’. No more than one person from an existing act. Doesn’t matter if the artist is no longer with us, or not (throw in Bill Hailey if you want.) Create your own supergroup.

(I appreciate not everyone’s going to be keen on my choice of singer)

Kate Bush - vocals
Jeff Beck - Guitar
Nick Mason - Drums
Chris Squire - Bass
Brian Eno - Keyboards

I’m guessing this would be a fairly proggy/art rock kind of band. With a brilliant light show.

    Off the top of my head ( whilst sitting on a toilet in Haven - scarey people on holiday here):
    Sly and Robbie, Jim Campilongo and Karen Carpenter.

    I believe I am right in saying that he's the most qualified karate expert/teacher in UK- and fought to a very high level competitively.

    Is that with Sly and Karen both drumming, like Butch Trucks and Jaimoe?

    I honestly can't think of any of my favourite bands that would be improved by switching any members with other bands. 

    That said, I'd like to see:
    - Paul McCartney playing with the E Street Band
    - Ed Obrien playing with The National
    - Foo Fighters with Zac Brown because Congregation was the best song on Sonic Highways by far and I'd like more please

    I can actually see some of this latter working, in particular Chuck Ragan and Dave Grohl.  IMO, CR doesn't seem to get as much recognition as I believe he should.

    Mine would be as follows, they are not necessarily my favourite at each but I think they would work well as an ensemble

    Jack White on Drums
    Ray Manzarek on keys (from the Doors)
    Geoff Gascoigne on double bass (from Jamie Cullum's band, also a brilliant arranger)
    Nick Zinner on guitars and synth (Yeah Yeah Yeahs)
    Vocalist is tricky, either Jeff Buckley or Julian Casablancas, or if I'm allowed dual vocals I'll have Jeff Buckley and the woman from Curved Air
    I may feel slightly sad, but I won't cry
