i posted my thoughts what i think would be ideal rory band. of course a lot of things depends on that thing called chemistry between players. here's another take on what would be imo great rory band

paul mccartney (vocals and bass)
ginger baker (drums)
rory (guitar and vocals)
I watched as fear took the old men's gaze
Hopes of the young in troubled graves
'I see no day' I heard him say
So grey is the face of every mortal

Innuendo, now THAT's an interesting lineup!!! Paul doesn't get the props he deserves as a bass player, IMO. I believe Rory quoted the opening riff to Day Tripper from time to time; he and Paul would certainly tear up a number like that. Ginger would certainly add an element all his own. Come to think of it, imagine if Rory had sat in on an extended jam of Yer Blues... John admired Rory anyway, and I'll bet the two of them could have teamed up for some pretty raucous, gritty blues and rock 'n' roll stuff. Thanks for getting my mind churnin' on the possibilities.

Speaking of Beatles tunes I'd love to hear Rory do, You Can't Do That would take on a whole new dimension. Not to mention Come Together.

OMG Jim that's brilliant! I wonder if Rory ever shared a bill with Little Feat? What a jam that could have made!

how about

rory (vocals and guitar)
andy fraser (bass) ex free bass player, really interesting player
bill ward (drums) ex sabbath drummer but he is really unique in that heavy rock/metal genre, his playing has a lot of jazz influences and his fills are amazing and you can always tell it's him on drums. beside that before sabbath became sabbath they were blues band called earth

Nice to see old Ginger getting a mention, phenomenal drummer. I've just finished his book.
My God! what a life he has led, although I don't really think he remembers much about it.
What about Aynsley Dunbar, was brilliant with John Mayall, Jeff Beck and his own group?
Not heard much of his stuff Jefferson Starship, Blue Whale etc.
What about John McVie on bass, very solid.
Then what about Leo Lyons, Chic Churchill and Ric Lee from Ten Years After?
That would be something special.
cheers

It would have to be a three piece and the only two guys that come to mind would be Ginger Baker on drums and Jack Bruce on bass. I know both these guys had a background in jazz and so would be more versatile and be able to follow Rory going off on one in a solo.

If I had to choose a singer, then no contest - Paul Rogers- fantastic blues singer and still looking great and sounding even better today.

Anyone know, who the guy in the middle is?

Hi Alison,
I agree with Paul Rodgers he's my fav Rock /Blues singer also. Did you know Paul said after Rory's passing in 1995...
That if there would have been any guitarist he would have loved in his band, it would have been ...
