A crazy painter/musician told me this one time while we were picking up a light fixture in Dorchester;

The Who is the greatest pure (sic) rock band. Led Zep and others leaned very bluesy.

Good job. And here I was, all worried you'd screw it all up.

Fred, when it comes to other old men's opinions (60 this year, right?), you know I count yours among the highest.

Same for Chris, but in the Middle-Aged category. That Chris really knows his stuff.

Can't say I ever heard a John Paul Jones bass line that really moved me the way Entwistle and Geddy do. Of course, neither JPJ nor Geddy are DEAD YET, so I'll try to stay within the parameters set forth in the original post. Ahem.

Give me the whole Who rhythm section.

Freddie Mercury is a good choice as vocalist - had not only the chops but also the charisma. Weird teeth, though. And not very bluesy.

I'd definitely let Ian McLagan hang out in the back and play piano.

The guitarist is the tough role. I don't perceive Jimi as versatile and collaborative, but he was the best and is certainly dead. I'll bet we could let Duane Allman sit in and he'd find space to amaze.

Tom, how about Steve Marriott or Mick Ronson? Dusty Rhodes?

Jeeeezz!! gotta set you guys straight (err, excluding Bob).

Ronnie Van Zant vocals, SRV lead guitar (how could we forget him?), John Entwistle bass and hmm...John Bonham on drums, although I'd like to see what Gene Krupa would do with that line-up.

I thought of SRV (no surprise there!) but thought he was too "blues" for the rock dead rock band everyone was planning.
