Here it is. After much brain scratching and soul-searching I finally have my six-piece all time fantasy rock band.
Firstly, the name. The band is called VY Canis Majoris. That is the name of the largest Star known to man, so I thought that is was quite an apt name for this ensemble.
Now, ladies and gentlemen let me introduce the band.
On Drums & Percussion…Neil Peart of Rush.
Almighty power and rhythm, and little pieces out of the blue as well make him the ideal stick man.
On Keyboards & Piano…Keith Emerson of Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
Honestly, how many people can play that well upside down?
On Bass Guitar…Chris Squire of Yes.
Absolutely brutal. I hope he brings his triple neck Bass to the gig.
On Rhythm Guitar & Backing Vocals…Mark Knofler of Dire Straits.
He’s finger picking good isn’t he?
On Lead Guitar & Backing Vocals…David Gilmour of Pink Floyd.
And finally, on Lead Vocals & Additional Piano…Freddie Mercury of Queen.
The ultimate showman, and a voice that could demolish buildings. He is sorely missed.
So there you have my all time Rock group. Tell me what you think, and tell me your dream group if you like.
Thank you very much. Goodnight, and have a safe journey home.
