You can have anybody in your band (you have to do something in it, even if tapping a triangle at the end of the song); their age/era/genre doesn't matter. The only rule is you can't just have a whole band - Booker T and the MGs may be an exception as they were session musicans as much as anything else... The make up of your band needs to be "sensible"; i.e. you need drums, bass, however many guitars, singer(s) (if you want), keyboard player/synthesist and anyone else you can justify. I just focussed in their music, not interested in ego/personality types, portrayal in the media etc.
Drummer - Warren Cann (Ultravox)
Bass - Flea
Guitarist 1 - Joe Walsh
Guitarist 2 - The Edge
Keyboards/Synths - Tony Banks
Synths/piano/Violin - Billy Currie
Singer (M) - Gary Numan
Singer (F) - Christina Aguilera
Percussion - Iris Camaa (Tangerine Dream etc).
Producer - Giorgio Moroder.
I could add backing vocals and synth parts..... We are dreaming here.....
Expected genre - power pop to concept albums maestroes
Real talk though my dream band kinda already exists:
Robert Palmer meets the Funky Asians uptown. This is not meant as a racial or kolonialist slur. There is something added to the sauce that I can’t put my finger on, just like when you listen to the cowboy bebop soundtrack or dj krush. The listener recognizes the musical vocabular but there is something else added. Nice.
