Okay, time for some whole-hearted good fun. I love music and classic rock as you all know (Okay, who exactly is reading this, besides me? Probably no one...) and there are actually quite a few bands that I would love to see happen (and none of them will, I can almost guarantee you). So, this, my friends is my personal fantasy band (#1). This band and subsequent ones don't really have names, but this is all in good fun, so it doesn't matter about names. I will also try not to put two people from the same band into one of my band, cuz that's just tacky. Also, no newer bands are included here (like 21st century new), just to let you know. All classic rock bands, whether they still tour or not. Deal with it.
Vocals - Roger Daltrey (69) The lead singer for The Who. Who doesn't know that? Raise your hand and make yourself known please. The man is incredible. I mean, did you see the Super Bowl? The Who killed it! Mr. Daltrey can still kick some frickin' a**!
Drums - Neil Peart (61) - Probably the greatest drummer ever. Oh, and his name is pronouned as "Peert", not "Pert". Just learned that recently. When it comes to Rush songs, everyone knows it's more fun to do air drumming, than air guitar. Neil is why. He gets three epic drum solos on their "Clockwork Angels" DVD.
Bass - Tom Petersson (63) - Some of you are thinking, "Of course, she puts him in the band." Yes, Tom Petersson belongs in this band of epic musicians. Why? He's fricking awesome! His bass work stands the test of time. He still plays that 12 string bass exceptionally well. His bass lines are part of what made Cheap Trick Cheap Trick. There would not have been a Cheap Trick without him. Well, there was, but without Tom in the band, the group sort of lost its direction. Don't believe me? Well, you should.
Guitar - Steve Howe (66) - Well, let's see. Steve Howe is the guitarist for the band Yes. Yes, he's in the band Yes. He is such an epic guitarist. If I wasn't so biased towards Cheap Trick, I'd say he was the best. Well, (Don't let Rick Nielsen know) Steve Howe *is* the best. Man, this guy is amazing. Just listen to the Yes Album or Fragile or Tales From Topographic Oceans or Relayer or just anything he played guitar on. Currently listening to the live version of "Yours is No Disgrace" from Yes Songs - greatest guitar solo ever, let me tell you.
Rhythm guitar - Nancy Wilson (59) - The youngin' of the group. The only female here. But, she can hold her own and play guitar better than a lot of men. She still plays an acoustic guitar and her "aggressive acoustic guitar playing" on "Crazy on You" rules. She's essential to this band to help keep the beat going. Plus, she can bust out some sweet guitar riffs from time to time and stun the audience. Also, she'll be the super energetic one. She jumps around the stage like she's still in her 20s
Flute - Ian Anderson (66) - The frontman and flute player for Jethro Tull, one of my favorite Progressive Rock bands. He needs to be in the band because he's too awesome. And you could always use a little epic flute work. Always.
