If Neil would form a supergroup, who should be the members?

An idle fantasy of mine is seeing a mix of his great songs crossed with a world class, truly emotive lead guitar player like Joe Bonamassa. It wouldn't happen because Neil doesn't do the blues but in my head it's great! The closest we've seen is maybe something like "Still got the blues" which is a great song without the lead guitar and an all time great with that solo......

Neil has essentially joined a supergroup but here would be my "dream band".

Neil on vocals, piano, guitar

Phil Selway on drums

Ed O'Brien on guitars

Pete Trewavas on bass

Lisa Germano on backing vocals etc.

Yep definitely Lisa Germano đź‘Ť or Wendy Matthews

I liked the idea of his sharing the stage with Johnny Marr and Eddie Vedder, they sounded fine together back in '01. That said, and given the idea of a supergroup, why not pick and choose ...

  • Bass: Marcus Miller (let's have some serious groove)
  • Drums: Steve Gadd (still can't beat the man)
  • Rhythm Guitar: Nile Rodgers (man, I would love that)
  • Lead Guitar: Neil himself and Mark Hart
  • Keyboards: if he can't persuade Eddie Rayner, try Tim Rice-Oxley

Holding myself to only artists who 1) have played with Neil before and 2) are best known for projects that didn’t involve Neil:

Neil Finn: guitar, piano, vocals

Richard Thompson: guitar, bvs

Ben Goldwasser: keyboards, bvs

John McVie: bass

Glenn Kotche: drums, percussion

There would be 4 Neils from 4 different eras:

Enz era, CH Mk1 era, Turn of the century solo era, CH Mk2 era, and present day.

Now the question is, which Neil would play what??

Hmm... how about ENZ and CH MK1 Neils sharing Guitars (acoustic and electric) and lead Vocals, Solo/Finn Bros era Neil on Bass (tea chest and standard) and backing vocals, CH MK2/Pajama Club era on Drums (and backing vocals), Present Day Neil on Piano/Keys (and backing vocals).

I would want to see a supergroup with songwriting chops.


Guitar/Keyboards/Vocal - Neil Finn

Drums/Vocal - Don McGlashan (not sure when the last time he touched a drum kit was.)

Bass/Vocal - Glenn Hughes (his recent solo album is a better Deep Purple album than Deep Purple's last album, in my opinion)

Keyboards/Vocal - Robert Lamm. Hey, maybe Neil would get invited to join Chicago too. 

Lead Guitar/Vocal - Dweezil Zappa


Hmmmm..... I'm not sure this would work as a group. But, stranger things have happened.
