Not to diminish this thread as it is perfectly valid and the one below was two years ago....

But i thought we had done similar before so went searching.

Very pleased to see my line up is exactly same as it was then!  :)

John Bonham
Alex Lifeson
Rick Wakeman
Adam Clayton
Roger Daltrey

Would've put Steve Howe, Chris Squire, or John Entwistle in but that would interfere with the placement of other members. I don't really know how well this band would work out but it would sound interesting.
Or is it now?
