    Eddie Murphy on vocals.
    Dick Dale and John McLaughlin for guitar.
    Noam Chomsky on bass.
    Art Tripp III on percussion.
    Luna on gayageum
    Kenny G soprano sax.
    Adolph Hitler on baritone sax.

    It might sound kind of like this.


    Here's a real-life super group, the Best Girls Band.

    Goodness this is a toughie. I think I am the proverbial donkey who starved to death between two stacks of hay, because I couldn't choose from which one to eat.

    Vocals: Tina Turner, Janice Joplin, John Lennon, Mick Jagger, David Bowie, Jim Morrison
    Guitars: Jimmy Page, Johnny Winter, Jimi Hendrix, Carlos Santana, Jeff Beck,
    Bass: Anthony Jackson, Jaco Pastorius, Tony Levin, Greg Lake
    Drums: Dave Weckl, John Bonham, Bill Bruford, Virgil Donati, Mike Portnoy, Tony Williams
    Keyboards: Rick Wakeman, Keith Emerson, Bob James, Keiko Matsui,
    Horns: David Sanborn, Tom Fowler, Bruce Fowler, Gato Barbieri, Wynton Marsalis, Edgar Winter, Branford Marsalis

    Obviously, any combination of these players might not make a great band, but if you put them together within their respective genres, you'd have some great music.

    So, this musician dies and goes to hell. Satan says, "We've got a band here and I'd like you to join. Over here are our guitarists, Duane Allman and Jimi Hendrix. On bass we have John Entwistle. On keyboards, Rick Wright and our newest member, Keith Emerson." So this guy is thinking, "Who's the drummer? John Bonham? Keith Moon? Earl Palmer? Naw...it's gotta be Moon. Or does it?"

    In walks a skinny girl who sits on the throne and calls out "OK, everyone, in four - 'Rainy Days and Mondays'".

    Would love to see that lineup, regardless of who's beating the skins.
