    Stemming off some recent threads, create your ultimate band, but everyone has to have passed on. It's can't completely be a packed house with 10 people or whatever. Your group should be the basic setup of whatever genre you prefer.

    Here is mine:

    Ronnie Van Zant - lead vocals
    Duane Allman - lead guitar
    Hughie Thomasson - guitar/vocals
    Allen Collins - guitar
    Leon Wilkeson - bass
    Jackson Spires - drums
    Danny Joe Brown - tambourine/vocals
    Billy Powell - piano

    Obviously, this would be a kick ass Southern Rock lineup. For those of you no in the know, I have in my lineup 4 from Skynyrd and 1 each from the Allman Bros, Outlaws, Blackfoot, and Molly Hatchet.

    I'd have some similar choices.

    Would without a doubt go with the Who's Moon and Entwistle. On drums and bass, there's no one better, or even close, in my view.

    Guitar--definitely had Allman on the list, would throw in George Harrison as well.

    On voice, I'd go with Karen Carpenter (seriously, that voice was pure silk) and perhaps Michael Hutchence.

    It would be interesting to break it down by era/decade.

    Oh, was a bit drunk when I replied and missed the part where they needed to be dead. I'll replace Collins with Moon.

    Angus Young and John Paul Jones also find their appearance on these lists interesting.
