The Dream
If you could get any musicians, dead or alive, and put them together in a band. Who would you choose. To avoid confusion, put the band that the player is in, and you can't have yourself in it either. Also, what kind of music would they play?
Here's an example:

Singer : Kurt Cobain (nirvana)
Backing : James Hetfield (metallica)
Lead guitar : Brian May (queen)
Rhythm Guitar : Chris Shifflet (foo fighters)
Bass Guitar : John Entwistle (the who)
Drums : John Bonnham (led zepellin)
Keyboards : Beethoven

Music: a fusion of classical music and glam rock!

Jimi + Gorillaz + Slipknot sounds to me like a recipe for disaster... maybe this thread should be more like your x favorite players... not just best but your favorites...

just cuz a person is good and you like them doesn't mean they will work well with the other musicians you like or even if they do, doesn't mean they'll produce good music... sure we can speculate on it... but mixing personalities like this spells trouble. whatever, it's a fun idea... go with it... I'm probably being too much of an uptight nit-picky mofo... Bahhh Humbug!

vocal-   Adam Lazzara (Taking Back Sunday)
piano &vocal- Andrew McMahon (Something CorporateJack’s Mannequin)
bass-   Pete Wentz (Fall Out Boy)

that's my pick   i'm obviously more modern pop-punk-emo-rock-ish

it was between Adam Lazzara (Taking BAck Sunday), Dan Marsala (StoryOfTheYear) or Jesse Lacey (Brand New) for the second vocal.  if Jesse Lacey would be my second pick.  i couldn't decide.

This has been done before, namely in Miles Davis's "Bitches Brew". But I'll put in my idea of a good time.

John McLaughlin: Electric Guitar
Charles Mingus: Bass Guitar
Herbie Hancock: Keyboards
Wayne Shorter: Saxophone
Jean-Luc Ponty: Electric Violin
Billy Cobham: Drums

And then, halfway through the song, all the parts switch to:

Al DiMeola: Electric Guitar
Ralphe Armstrong: Bass Guitar
Chick Corea: Keyboards
John Coltrane: Saxophone
Jerry Goodman: Electric Violin
Michael Narada Walden: Drums
