My Fantasy Band: Jake Bugg
'Elvis was a showman; he had all the moves'
Drums: Ringo Starr
I like the way he keeps things simple; he just plays what's needed. I think he's pretty underrated; he's one of the best.
Bass: Paul McCartney
Ringo needs another Beatle to feel at home. I had to go with Paul because the bass guitar he uses has a distinct sound and he has some great lines, too.
Keys: Ray Charles
He was a great piano player with really fantastic songs, too. He had so much soul.
Rhythm guitar: Johnny Cash
He was a fine acoustic guitar player and has great rhythm. I think he'd go well with the others, too.
Lap steel guitar: Robert Johnson
He's a great slide player and he's got the blues down to a tee. He allegedly sold his soul in return for extreme guitar-playing skills; that's how good he was. If you listen to his songs it sounds like two people playing.
Lead guitar: Jimi Hendrix
He's my favourite guitarist and he was indisputably the greatest.
Vocals: Elvis Presley
He was such a showman, he had all the moves, and obviously had a very distinct voice. He just loved rock'n'roll. I'd definitely have early Elvis, though. On backing vocals, I'd have the Everly Brothers – they do great harmonies.
Jake Bugg's debut album, 'Jake Bugg', is out on Monday on Mercury Records.
