    Heloise Williams, former frontwoman for Viper House.
  10. Damn, Alanis! What a dummy I am.
    I'd even eliminate the old blues guys and keep, say, Butterfield, because he crossed over the same way Clapton did on the guitar.
    Glad to see Sancious get mentioned, though. I think he's the only real loss from the original E-streeters.

    Agreed, I wish Something Corporate would come out with another album, I prefer their stuff over JM.
  12. I'll nominate Rick Wakeman on keyboards.

    Ian Anderson on the flute.

    And on harmonica, Dylan and Paul Simon.
