I hate to lower the signal here, but I have to chime in on the 'Ultimate Band'.

Dictator and Composer: Frank Zappa
Lead Guitar: Jimmy Page
Rhythm Guitar: Keith Richards
Guitar Pyrotechnics: Eddie Van Halen
Bass: Robert Sledge (Ben Folds Five)
Drums: Terry Bozio
Trumpet: Maynard Ferguson
Tenor Sax: Michael Brecker and Bob Mintzer
Trombone: Tom Malone
Bari Sax: Doc Kupka
Piano: Ben Folds
Keyboards: Stevie Wonder
Vocals: Aretha Franklin, Tom Jones
Backup Vocals: En Vogue and Barenaked Ladies

If this kinda looks like Zappa's band for Live in New York and Baby Snakes , then you are perceptive. I think that is a wonderful album. Of course, I would get to play in this band too.
