My Fantasy Band by Kelly Jones, Stereophonics
Friday 10 October 2008
Vocals: Otis Redding
I always liked his albums because my old man used to play quite a lot of soul music when I was a kid. I watched him on 'Ready Steady Go!' and thought he was amazing.
Guitar: Keith Richards
You don't get much more down and dirty than Keith Richards. In The Rolling Stones' heyday he was the ultimate rock'n'roll guitar player. No one could touch him.
Bass: Donald 'Duck' Dunn
He was the bass player in the Blues Brothers band and on a lot of Otis Redding records, too. He was a great blues bass player; he's kind of odd-looking, but he's brilliant.
Drums: Phil Rudd
AC/DC's Rudd is one of the simplest drummers but also one of the dirtiest groove drummers there's ever been. He's very underrated. He plays with a cigarette in his mouth, which makes him look pretty cool.
Keyboard: Stevie Wonder
He's quite good on the keys, isn't he? He could do backing vocals as well. Stevie could be the lead songwriter in this blues rock band; he and Keith Richards could probably write a few tunes together. This would work, I think. They'd sell a few records.
Books And it is whizzpopping!
