--Best Band--
Lead Guitar: Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)
Lead Guitar/Backing Vocals: David Gilmour (Pink Floyd)
Drums: Neil Pert (Rush)
Bass/Lyricist: Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)
Keyboards: Ray Manzareck (The Doors)
Vocals: Robert Plant (Led Zeppelin)

So, okay, I've got two guys from Led Zeppelin, and two from Pink Floyd. Oh well. I'll break it down into 4 sub-categories:
Blues, Hard Rock, Punk, and Classical/Acid/Techno-Fusion

Here it is.

--Dream Blues Band--

Lead Guitar/Vocals: Stevie Ray Vaughn
Lead Guitar/Vocals: B.B. King
Bass: Marcus Miller
Drums: Francis Clay (Muddy Waters' drummer)

'nuff said. Truly a fearsome foursome. Obviously, I'm not going out on a limb. If you've never seen Marcus Miller, you've never seen a bass player- he did trill-tapping on a bass, he is just amazing. I would love to hear a Marcus Miller bassline as the foundation for Stevie and King duet, something strong, like the bassline to "Crossfire." No keyboardist needed, just the bare essentials.

--Dream Hard Rock Band--

Rythm Guitar/Lead Vocals: Kurt Cobain (Nirvana)
Lead Guitar: Kirk Hammett (Metallica)
Bass: Steve Harris (Iron Maiden)
Drums: John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)

Okay, I may be getting repetitive. But here is something to blow you mind.

--Dream Punk Band--

Guitar/Vocals: Bradley Nowell (Sublime)
Guitar: Brett Gurewitz (Bad Religion)
Bass/Vocals: Tim Armstrong (Rancid)
Drums: Byron McMackin (Pennywise)

I guess these are pretty much the biggest names in punk. Oh well, hope I still blew your mind. At least I didn't try to be too original.
Will post a crazy Classical/Acid/Techno-Fusion list after I get some sleep. Later.

superstar band but it just won't fit together...

Lead vocals - Brandon Boyd (Incubus) or Eddie Vedder (Pearl Jam)

Backing Vocals - John Frusciante (Chili Peppers and solo)

Drums - Nick Mason (Pink Floyd)

Bass - Duff (Guns N' Roses and Velvet Revolver)

Guitar - John Frusciante (Chili Peppers and solo)

won't fit together but seriously people, anyone would buy the record just because of the names

oh and 4 is all you need  in this band because half of them are from split superstar band and i figure the less people, less chance of that happening again

dream hypnotic groove icon band:

vocals and smoke machine - Andrew Eldritch (The Sisters of Mercy)
fem. vocals - Liz Fraser (Cocteau Twins)
general electronix - Martin Gore (Depeche Mode)
samples & loops & live percussion: Kevin cEy (Skinny Puppy)
ethnic percussion - Brendan Perry (Dead Can Dance)
guitars and backing vox - Lou Reed (in VU mode)
bass - Paul Barker (ex Ministry)

Andrew Eldritch and Lou Reed write the lyrics together, and Brendan Perry lays down the initial percussion groove. Martin Gore and Kevin cEy create the soundscapes, but nothing too far gone, just something minimalist, but beaty, and catchy. Paul Barker is in there because of his fat bass sound and style, and Liz Fraser can spunk it all up with some feminem touch. I wanted to put Dave Stewart (Eurhythmics) in there, but I'd like to see him do a song or two with Army of Lovers and the KLF. That'll be really neat!

here it is=>

--Best Classical/Acid/Techno Band--

Keyboards/Piano: Mozart
Electric Guitar: Santana
Acoustic Guitar/Electric Guitar: Al Di Meola
Electric Violin: Jean-Luc Ponty
Cello: Yo-Yoma
Vocals: Beth Gibbons (Portishead)
Vocals: Robert Plant (His solo self, i.e. pretty modern)
Drums/Percussion/Piano: Beethoven

Robert and Beth would bring Mozart into the 21st century. (He would probably find FL Studio 5.0 pretty sweet, but let's not speculate too much)

I could almost call this an iconic band, but then I'd have to get rid of unknown Beth. This was a fun topic.

The band that would undeniably be the best:


Lead Guitar: Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin)
Bass: John Entwhistle (The Who)
Vocals:  Freddy Mercury (Queen)
Drums : John Bonham (Led Zeppelin)
Magic Dick on harp (harmonica) from J. Giels Band.
Keyboard/Organ: Jon Lord (Deep Purple)
Write: Bheethoven

They'd play something like all the great oldies rock and roll with plenty of blues mixed in that would sound like modern, rock and roll chamber music.

Oh man that would be sweet.
