    I would've gave anything to hear Marvin Gaye on a Parliament track circa '76. Or him adding backgrounds to something like "Flash Light" or "Aqua Boogie"! Oh my God. Sucks we didn't get that.

    Variations on a theme:

    I'd like to see Mick Jagger and Morrissey switch, so Marr writes for Mick and Richards writes for Morrissey.

    Peter Buck and Morrissey.

    Michael Stipe and Johnny Marr.

    Jerry Garcia and George Clinton, or better yet Eddie Hazel.

    I was going to add Sly Stone but he and Garcia did play together on 'Oh What a Mighty Time' by the New Riders of the Purple Sage.

    Here's an idea (and I'm not kidding about this)....

    Kurt Cobain and Yoko Ono. Both in terms of music and art).

    King Curtis & the MGs, probably would've happened if Stax & Atlantic hadn't fallen out
    Lee Morgan & Sonny Rollins, record company politics and maybe Lee was too close to Clifford?

    Prince and Miles Davis. And don't give that "it actually happened ", because whatever was the outcome, it hasn't been released
    I also dream of a Marley/Hendrix set

    Sarah Cracknell (Saint Etienne) and Colin Blunstone (The Zombies). Their voices would sound amazing together. I wish Dusty Springfield would've done a duet with Colin but this could at least still happen.
    Willie Nelson and Bill Callahan (Smog). Bill's recorded at Willie's studio; this could happen.

    Northern Kentucky
    Frontman: Rob Halford (Judas Priest)
    Drums: Neil Peart (Rush)
    Lead Guitar: Eddie Van Halen
    Rhythm Guitar: Jon Schaffer (Iced Earth)
    Bass: John Entwistle (The Who)
    Keyboards: Vadim Pruzhanov (DragonForce)

    And for twin and triple guitar attacks you can add Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden) and The Edge (U2) [The Edge can adapt to the faster, heavier songs that the other guys are known to be good at.]

    Another collaboration that I think would be neat would be Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen playing off each other. Almost like a dueling guitar solos jam.

    Also, I would like to see Lady Gaga collaborate more with other males, like she did with Tony Bennett with that duets album/tour and with Metallica during that awards show. She is so talented and very adaptable to various styles of music. Does she have it in her to do operatic singing with famous Tenors? That might be something worth hearing/watching.

    Similarly, I would like to see John Mellencamp keep collaborating with various female singers. Over the years, he has collaborated with a few on some songs (and on his newest album.) With his aging voice, the females who sing with him complement his vocals. Makes the songs sound better than if he had to sing them solo.

    Wouldn't it be neat to have a Lou Reed and Metallica collaboration?...Oh, nevermind...
  22. Miles and Jimi, plus any number of bassists one could mention -- Billy Cox would probably be my first choice, with Dave Holland a close second -- plus Jack D. on drums (my first choice), or maybe Mitch Mitchell (a close second). Ideally Miles and Jimi would have each brought one (each) of their sideman to the table.

    Paul's a fine bass player, but I cannot fathom those three getting along on the same session -- and it would have taken just the right mix of people to make it all work.
  23. I could see that combo working. Or Cobain and Ornette Coleman, actually (or, hell, all three). Doesn't mean I think the results would have all been coherent (or even necessarily ANY of the results being coherent) -- but I think Kurt, Yoko, and Ornette are all three different enough, that they might have all gotten along well enough to at least have given it a go.

    I thought of the greatest collaboration ever the other day: Ron Wood and . . . wait for it . . . .

    Nick Lowe.

    I don't think they've worked together, but their personalities would mesh incredibly well, I think.
