I've been thinking about this for awhile. If you could make a band out of dead musicians, what would your lineup be? Preference for musicians that died young.

Here's one I've been kicking around for awhile, merely based on musical talent.
Drums: Keith Moon
Bass: Cliff Burton
Guitar: Randy Rhodes
Vocals: Layne Staley

Speaking of dead musicians ... Muddy Waters - April 4, 1914 – April 30, 1983.

I thought about Jim Morrison for vocalist, but I really don't like The Doors much. Too much Hammond organ, I suspect.

Ooh, I forgot about John Bonham. Good one!

For a piano quintet:

Piano-Rachmaninoff

Violins-Heifetz and Oistrakh

Viola-Primrose

Cello-Feuermann

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

For some reason Achmed the dead terrorist keeps popping into my head whenever I see this thread.

Hmmm, there's so many to choose from, I'd have to go with:


Vocals: can't argue with Freddie Merc

Bass: John Entwisle

Lead: Jimmy Hendrix or SRV

Drums: tossup between Moon and Bonham

Rhythm: can we include Keith Richards?
