My Fantasy Band: Lulu James
'She sang with such emotion; you knew she meant every word of what she was singing'
Vocals: Amy Winehouse
She had an amazing pair of lungs and I loved her the very first time I heard her. She sang with such emotion and feeling; you knew she meant every word of what she was singing.
Backing vocals: Gil Scott-Heron, Beyoncé & John Legend
Gil Scott-Heron had such a soulful voice and wicked banter. There's something about his music that makes you feel like you know him. Beyoncé is a fantastic performer and I feel like she's a great role model, too. I have to include John Legend because he's incredible.
Lead guitar: Jimi Hendrix
Who else would you pick? He did amazing things on the guitar that nobody has come close to since. He didn't just play, he changed everything.
Rhythm guitar: Dave Okumu
I've worked with him and he's an absolute genius and a stunning guitarist. I love his band The Invisible as well.
He's a busker who hangs out on Northumberland Street in Newcastle. He is slick, cool and amazingly talented. He rocks the bass. He's not famous but he should be.
Drums: Jamie XX
I live for him, I think he's amazing. He's brought a whole new thing to rhythmic production. He can definitely get his steel drums out for me; he loves them.
Keys: Alicia Keys
She's also an amazing vocalist but she looks so great playing the piano that I'm putting her there.
