Ok, but remember supergroups almost never work:

 The best example in my mind of this is Holdsworth playing with Joe Satriani  on the title track of Stu Hamm's Radio Free Albumuth - they neutralised each other, and so made the worse record of either guitarists' career (IMHO).  I think Truth In Shredding with Holdsworth with Gambale illustrated this too - as did the Metheny/Scofield and Abercrombie/Scofield  album projects. 

The biggest problem with MVP was Allan and Frank never actually played together in the same room. Gambale completed the whole project with holes for Allan to fill. Too sterile. True improvisation needs a live setting.

The same goes for the Stu Hamm project. If Satch and Holdsy played together in the same room, we may have heard something completely different. Of course, I thought the tune itself was meagor.

That's why I said almost, UK is a great example of that, but even if people believe I'm crazy, I like "Danger Money"more than UK's self titled album.

Here I shall compose the ugliest supergroup ever.

Bass/Vocals: Roger Waters
Guitar: Steve Howe
Keyboards: Rick Wakeman (he hasn't exactly aged gracefully)
Drums: Christian Vander

They could use Roger Waters' idea from The Wall tours of building a big brick wall in front of the stage to block the performers.  That would probably be the only way anyone could survive sitting through their live show.

Hey have you seen Roger Waters lately.  He looks a whole lot better.. the older he's gotten. These days he's looking rather suave...

I was about to say that

Again we agree.

But then without a lead guitarist it would never work

I heard Jimmi Hendrix was going to join the band, but unfortunally he died. The band would be called HELP (Hendrix, Emerson, Lake and Palmer) instead of ELP.

Hello, I'm new, blah blah blah....

Ultimate supergroup, eh?

Vocals: Annie Haslam. Just Annie Haslam, thank you very much.

Guitar: Martin Barre. He's a good all-rounder - not too virtuso-y, but capable of a smashing solo!

Keys: Kerry Minnear. Never an unnecessary note. (And he could play vibes/xylophone!)

Bass/vocals: Chris Squire. Obviously.

Sax/flute: Didier Malherbe.

Drums: Bill Bruford.

Percussion/things: Hasse Bruinisson.

 

I'd also expect some session players for the odd bit of cello, mandolin, accordian etc.

How's that for a balanced line-up then?

Arthur Brown (as in The Crazy World of) seems to think he got screwed in that process...

Why??... Carl had already left Arthur Brown with Vincent Crane and formed Atomic Rooster.  AR already had out an album... if anyone, Vincent Crane was the one who got screwed...

Peter Gabriel - Vocals, Flute, Oboe, Show

Steve Hackett - Guitar, Vocals

Lupo (Grobschnitt) - Guitar, Vocals

Jonas Reingold - Bass

Eroc (Grobschnitt) - Drums

I don't know who to put behind the keyboards, perhaps Keith Emerson or Rick Wakeman? There are too many good keyboarders out there...
