Usually good bands are considered greater than the sum of their parts. But I've always thought about creating a "fantasy band" like a fantasy football team. So I'm wondering who would be in your "fantasy band," dead or alive. Here are my choices:

Lead vocals: Freddy Mercury

Guitar: Eddie Van Halen

Bass: John Entwistle

Drums: Keith Moon

I saw Les Claypool in concert once (not with Primus). He had this contraption with one string that was upright like traditional bass that he would hit with a stick. It had this level on the top that I assume would tighten or loosen the string to create different notes. It had a cool sound and it was fun to watch him play it.

Claypool's instrument is called a "Whamola." I found a link that has a full video of him playing it:

This was supposed to be fantasy bands, not real ones!
But I did put two members from the same band in mine.
