Who would be in your all-star lineup?

Say you discovered the cure for AIDS or something like that, and the world is in the palm of your hand. In your honor, you can have the most kick-ass rocking party, with anyone you want (live or dead to make it
interesting). Like last night, it will be shown throughout the world. Who would be on the bill?

For me:

*The Who (with Moonie of course!--and he has to blow up his drums)
*Neil Young
*The Clash
*Talking Heads
*The Beatles
*Janis Joplin
*The Boss
*Marvin Gaye
*Le Tigre (feminist punk band--guaranteed to get your ass movin)
*Billie Holiday
*The Stones
*Clapton

And the evening will end with a 4 hour set by U2 (during which Larry does a naked drum solo--OK, semi-nude). Hehe--that would be an amzing show. And Charles Barkley would be the host!

Otherwise, I agree with all of mbi's choices, and I would include the addition of a Mr. Bob Zimmerman.

Hey Se7en:

I think it is funny you chose Guster. I went to college with them (when they used to be called Gus.) They used to play in the dining room of my fraternity. We hated their music and we eventually voted to never have them play in our house again. Very interesting they are making aname for themselves now...

ouizy,

Ummm, how could you put INXS with Bob Geldof replacing Michael Hutchence. That is probably one of the worst things I've ever seen. I hope it was a joke.

It was kind of a joke, but I was trying to think of a replacement singer and I thought wouldn't it be nice if the band forgave Bob and Bob forgave the band et al.

Maybe you are right and he was a bad choice...

Nirvana
Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Bruce Springsteen (pref. when he was in his 30s) - 2 hour set with tight trousers
U2 headlining - 4 hour set and the boys are stripped to their boxers to raise money for charity!

Then again with Bono on stage I doubt money will be the only thing raised

*runs back to PLEBA*
