Garth Hudson, actually, every form of sax, accordian, and even trombone. On keyboards, unlike some, a master of both piano and organ, even though piano not needed given Richard Manuel. Exactly the kind of multi-instrumentalist who could have played with lots of folks and bands and contributed mightily.Levon Helm, drums and vocals (sometimes mandolin)
Rick Danko, bass and vocals
Richard Manuel, piano and vocals (sometimes drums)
Robbie Robertson, guitar
Garth Hudson, keyboards
Jerry was a race car driverLes Claypool ... Yes! Do you need a lead guitar, with him there? Lol.
That's a great lineup. Though, I'm not certain Plant can shine in the kind of songs that highlight Claypools talent. On the other hand, I think Hendrix and Plant would have done well together.
Robert Plant singing 'Shake Hands With Beef'? Yikes.
Now Muscle Shoals has got the SwampersWhat about a band made up of some of the best of the US ... session musicians?
So, continuing this sub-theme....My female top 5...seeing as no females are on anyone's list yet
Vocals: Rachel Nagy (Detroit Cobras)
Joan Jett: Guitar/vocals (no explanation needed)
Drums: Carla Azar (drummer for Jack White on your)...sorry Meg, you were cooler but not as good a drummer.
Bass: Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth)
Hmm, that's probably the right answer. Actually, you can see it in that legendary Rock n Roll Hall of Fame performance of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps." He's on stage with the veritable Who's Who of living guitarists and absolutely stole the show.-- Prince. Just Prince (all instruments, vocals). We were lucky enough to actually see that one. I agree with a previous comment that he'd probably overshadow any group he was a part of.
