Any genre, any time, anybody! I would have like a whole album with the Rolling Stones or Neil Young but I would have also liked a James Taylor Appearence on the White Album or Abbey Road.
But what about you?

The Beatles with the Rolling Stones would be so interesting and would certainly eliminate the suposed "rivalry" between them

My list

Michael Jackson( not so improbable, counting the collaboration with Paul McCartney)

Eric Clapton

Billy Preston

Beethoven(Impossible, but sounds like a nice idea)

John, Paul, George and Ringo= The Beatles And i buried Tulio!

Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Aretha Franklin, Bill Withers, Bob Marley, Elton John, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday. It would have been interesting had the Beatles continued into the 70's and explored funk and reggae as well as other genres. John said that they tried to incorporate some reggae, or ska, into I Call Your Name, but they definitely would have gotten it better had they stayed together longer. Take some of those funky Police tracks and just erase Sting and the Beatles could have done something pretty cool.

I remember George saying 'Blimey, he's always talking about “Yesterday”, you'd think he was Beethoven or somebody' - Paul McCartney

All good points vonbontee But I would have Neil Young help on vocals in Yer Blues.

The Beatles and Me First & The Gimmie Gimmies. Their cover of "All My Loving" was awesome!

@GniknuS: man, Sting was 75% of The Police. A great guitar player, a great drummer, but the poet and composer there was Gordon Mathew Sumner.

The following people thank Oudis for this post:

I was going to say Clapton too, but WMGGW is collaboration between them. More would've been very cool.

I'm tempted to say The Police, but for some reason I can't imagine it sounding good, or at least not like either band alone... I really can't imagine it at all, so maybe for that reason it'd be interesting.

If I spoke prose you'd all find out, I don't know what I talk about.

I agree... They were all amazing (still are) but Sting was what made that band what it was, could've been good with a different singer, but they wouldn't have been The Police.
