I'm a wee bit older, & my guilty pleasure would be Elkie Brooks. Saw her live in Barnstaple a few years ago & she was exceptional.



(I might get to pluck her later........ :D )

I played support when she gigged at Oxford Town Hall as 17yr old Elaine Mansfield. Never forgotten.

John Frusciante, the perfect guitarist for bass players I think.

Yes, he is. Him, Larry Lalonde (mentioned earlier) and Andy Summers are ideal for us bass playing folks.
Liking Jeff Porcaro (RIP) from Kiwi, but I'll add...

Carl Palmer or, in fact, a young (shut up and sit on the drum stool!) Phil Collins for drummers

Great shout!

Would love to play with Sting.

Drummer wise, Steve Jordan, Keith Carlock and Abe Laboriel Jr. would be amazing guys to play with.

I might like to be in Emerson, Bert & Palmer.
Sadly though, my chances are a lot better in Bert, Lake & Palmer.


best,

Björk.

The first person who came into my head when I read the title.
Not just to play bass, but any instrument. & some of the time signatures & changes make Jazz seem as complex as 90s happy hardcore!

The way I figure...if I couldn't sound good with him, then I might as well hang up the instrument and take up tibetan nose flute blowing or something. Would love to have played with Alan Murphy too, his playing makes the hair on the back of my neck stand up - taken way before his time. :(

Come to think of it, I might as well form a zombie band.

Drums - Jeff Pocaro (Toto)
Guitar - Alan Murphy (L42/Go West/Sessionista)
Keys - Richard Wright (Floyd)
Percussion - Jack Ashford (Funk Bros)
Singers - Aaliyah, Eva Cassidy, Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes and...Elvis (because, its [i]my[/i] zombie band, ok?)

Zombie band eh?

Hmm, couldn't think of the One Lineup to Rule Them All and need to head off to a gig... But I'm fairly sure I'd have Frank Zappa on guitar. And he couldn't say no, because he's a zombie and I'm a necromancer.

Somehow, the idea of being on stage with one of my musical heroes, seeing them look across at me as I dig deep into the groove and hearing the magic words..."get that idiot out of here" doesn't appeal. :lol:
