Who is the most talented musicians, who ever formed a band?

Which band, from the entire history of modern music, would you say are the most gifted bunch of musicians ever. Anyone who says u2, needs to give their head a wobble. Id say the opposite for u2. None of them are outstanding musicians. #JustBeingHonest

For me, i have it down to 2 bands. Either Led Zeppelin or Elvis's Taking Care of Business (TCB) Band. Every musician in those bands, were top notch in my humble opinion.

This is tough. I'd have to go with Blind Faith...Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker, Steve Winwood, and Rick Grech.
Iíve seen for myself, thereís no end to grief, thatís how I know, and why I need to know that there is no end to love

I was going to say that. Didn't know they had a name, though. I saw a documentary about the unsung heroes of the Motown sound and it was incredible.

I really wouldn't name Led Zep as I believe 1/Jimmy Page is kind of overrated IMO and 2/they have a list of legal actions against them for plagiarism.

I'd say The Police were really ace musicians. Sting and Andy Summers both had a Jazz background. Stewart Copeland is the most inventive rock drummer ever...
A dangerous idea that almost makes sense...
