super group?


Recommended Posts

Dennis Chambers on drums

Amadito Valdez on percussion

Victor Wooten on bass

Lenny Brau, Jerry Garcia and Micheal Houser on guitars--no Hendrix only because with the advent of beats loops and sampling he'd a one man band.

Jerry takes on some vocal duties joined by Janis Joplin, Sarah Brightman and John Bell.

Horn section of Maceo Parker and Miles Davis (thanks velvet :) )

Dylan and Vic Chesnutt as Lyricists.

All of these people performing the compositions of Frank Zappa, who, of course, would conduct the whole thing in a dayglow orange jumpsuit.

I also agree wholeheartedly with kung on this one, with a shout out to Thumpin for great picks (I'll excuse the Miles typo, as the 'd' key and the 's' key are pretty close to one another), and a thanks to StoneMtn for reinventing The Tummies, but here's my picks:

Kevin Breit - guitar

Bobby McFerrin - vocals

I could stop there and it already would be the best show of my life, but I'll fill it out with:

Brian Blade - drums

Paul Schaffer - keys

Bill Frisell - guitar

The guy from The Slip - bass

Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder can be the principle songwriters.

Seriously though, Kevin and Bobby gotta do a few songs together as a duet.
