The ULTIMATE supergroup

Recommended Posts

Ok, so ive been thinking about what the best band ever would be, and i want yall to do the same. Include as many of whatever you want, from any bands in the past or present, dead or alive, and form your ULTIMATE supergroup B)

For me...

Paul Rogers- Free, Bad Co., Firm- Vocals

Jimmy Page- Fast(er) lead guitar

Paul Kossof- Free- Slower, very soulful lead guitar

Duane Allman-The Allman bros- Slide guitar

Ady Fraser- Free- Bass

Bonzo- Drums

Billy Powell- Lynyrd Skynyrd- keyboards

thats my line up, wut bout u??

I think we should take the bands as they are now. Not by mixing different members from different groups. A Led Zeppelin member is a Led Zeppelin and performs with Zeppelin members. And so it goes for everyone, guitarist, vocalist or whatever from any band.

Many of these people were in other supergroups, JImmy Page was in the Firm with Paul Rogers, Paul Rogers is now with queen. Duane Allman has doth various other things like Derek and the Dominoes for while b4 he died, so, im just saying, it would be awsome to see all these greats play together.

Im going with alive people

Page- Guitar/Acoustic

Jonsey- Keyboards/8-string Bass/Triple Neck

Carter Beauford- Drums

Les Claypool-Bass/Vocals/Bassjo

Im thinking No Quarter for the first set, then Jonsey on a 8-string bass, Les Slapping, Page soloing, and Carter keeping the grove. You could also could fire Les, And put Dave Matthews up there with an acoustic.

I was tying to incoprate zep into tool, but they both have thier own styles that may not work. unless you have Jonsey sit in for no quarter behind the keys. Bonzo would work with Tool.

Bonzo could play the tabla parts :D or they could have a drum off during Moby Dick...alas, he left us too soon.

Dude, I'm trying really hard to get the keyboard part of No Quarter played on my 4 string bass. theres is alot of movement, but my dream is to start off it on Bass, when going into verses, play it just like tool did, but for the jam part, all slap bass rhythm. Mix in part of the "Badge holders" version and the tool version. There is a guy on youtube who does it on a 5-stringer which keeps him from going all around.

The Steely Dan Backing band.

Larry Graham- Bass

Jimmy Page- Lead Guitar

Donald Fagen- Piano

Walter Becker- Rhythm Guitar

Carter Beauford- Drums

Horn Section from Chicago

I hate to add more then one zep just because the music would change so much. But Jonsey can defiantly do the bass, but he so good on the keyboards also, so permiting him to one instrument is silly.

One of the Rock Magazines (Classic Rock?) had a poll about this a couple of years ago and the result was

Vocalist Robert Plant

Gutar Jimmy Page

Bass John Paul Jones

Drummer John Bonham

I see no reason to dispute their findings!

I'm not going to include any members of Led Zeppelin

Vocals : Marvin Gaye, Tim and Jeff Buckley

Bass : Larry Graham

Guitars : Jeff Beck , Carlos Santana

Drums : Steve Ferrone, David Garibaldi

Keyboards : Herbie Hancock

Horns : Tower Of Power horn section with Lenny Pickett

That's a pretty funky line up that could play anything

It's a shame Orbison croaked and put a stop to them.

Who could replace him I wonder?
