I thought this would be a cool idea. Pick:

One or two guitarists (one could also be the lead vocalist, and the other a backing vocalist, unless you'd rather have a separate lead and backing vocalists altogether)

A bassist

A drummer

(Optional) A keyboardist 

Three songs you would've liked them to play together.

They can be dead or alive, and from different periods if you wish. 

I should hopefully post my example soon, but I'd love to see all of yours in the mean time! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Great idea, here's mine, i decided to do a mix of everything for fun:

Paul McCartney (The Beatles, Wings, Solo): Lead Vocals, Bass Guitar

Eric Clapton (The Yardbirds, John Mayall & The Blues Breakers, Cream, Blind Faith, Derek And The Dominoes, Solo): Guitar, Backing Vocals

Brian May (Queen): Guitar, Backing Vocals

Neil Peart (Rush): Drums

Adele: Piano, Organ, Synthesizer, Harpsichord, Clavichord, Electric Piano, Keyboard

EDIT:

Forgot to follow SPB's rules at first so i fixed that.

Most of the bands I like are basically supergroups anyways, considering the talent of each of the members.

But here goes:

George Harrison - Lead Vocals

Roger McGuinn (The Byrds) - Lead guitar, backing vocals, 12 string rickenbacker 

Johnny Marr (The Smiths) - Lead guitar, 12 string rickenbacker 

D'arcy Wretsky (Smashing Pumpkins) - Bass guitar 

Reni (The Stone Roses) - Drums, backing vocals  

Songs: 

Mr Tambourine Man (Dylan/Byrds)

If I Needed Someone (The Beatles/Byrds) 

The Boy With The Thorn In His Side (The Smiths) 

Should be quite an unconventional super group but hey ho. 

(Roll in all the people saying theirs would be John Lennon , Paul McCartney , George Harrison & Ringo Starr )

Why not have George play guitar as well as sing.

Adele is not a keyboard player, she plays guitar and bass, along with drums. Her keyboard player is Miles Robertson.

Because three guitars would be a bit much. I was hesitant to include too.

Thanks for pointing that out, i thought it would be funny to have Adele play an instrument but not sing at all and assumed that she was a pianist, still keeping it the way it is though.

Anyways, i almost forgot to list the songs that my super group would play:

Tie Your Mother Down (originally released by Queen in 1976)

Paul McCartney : Lead vocals, Rickenbacker bass

Eric Clapton: Fender Stratocaster rhythm guitar, Backing vocals

Brian May: Red Special lead and rhythm guitar, Backing vocals

Neil Peart: Drums

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da (originally released by The Beatles in 1968)

Paul McCartney : Lead vocals, Rickenbacker bass

Eric Clapton: Martin D-28 rhythm guitar, Backing vocals

Brian May: Red Special guitar doubling bass, Backing vocals

Neil Peart: Drums

Adele: Piano

Crossroads (based on version originally released by Cream in 1968)

Eric Clapton: Lead vocals, Gibson SG lead guitar

Paul McCartney : Rickenbacker bass, Martin D-28 rhythm guitar, Tambourine

Brian May: Red Special rhythm guitar

Neil Peart: Drums

Adele: Hammond organ

But that is just stupid, @Dark Overlord. She does not play any form of keyboard instrument, which is why Miles has been working with her since 2008. You have chosen a keyboard player who doesn't play a keyboard.

What type of supergroup has an instrumentalist who cannot play their instrument?

There's imaginary, and then there's complete fiction.

By your rules, why not have Ringo on lead guitar, Eric Clapton on violin, Yo-Yo Mar on drums, and Nancy Shevell on bass?

^ Eric has got crippling nerve damage as well, so I don't think he'd be joining any supergroups anytime soon (which is very unfortunate because I am a MASSIVE Clapton fan).

That's covered in the first post, @AppleScruffJunior:

Means, to me at least, that you can choose to have a Cream-era Clapton say, alongside a Smiths-era Johnny Marr.

Forgiveness please, I scanned through the opening post, obviously not taking in everything. 

 

As for my own supergroup, they'd probably all clash musical styles and egos so I don't think I'd be able to come up with one!

But that's the fun of it @Ron Nasty it's fun to imagine a band with John Deacon on lead vocals, John Bonham on guitar, Ringo Starr on bass, and Lil' Wayne on drums. Why imagine a perfectly realistic band when you can add an element of pure fiction. If the idea of complete fiction was thought of as wrong, such classic works as Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wizard Of Oz, Star Wars, Yellow Submarine , and Planet Of The Apes would've never existed. In conclusion, i see nothing wrong with having Adele play piano in my fictional supergroup because that's what it is, fictional, a form of imagination.

This would probably be a really messy band but i'd have:

John Lennon - Lead vocals

Jimi Hendrix - Lead & rhythm guitar (since his playing incorporated both), occasional backing vocals

Keith Moon - Drums

John Paul Jones - Bass

Rick Wakeman - Keyboards

Songs: 

Won't Get Fooled Again (The Who) - A chance for the band and each member to demonstrate their abilities.

Hocus Pocus (Focus) - Imagine John trying to sign this....

Johnny B. Goode (Chuck Berry) - Classic rocker which they can jam to.

Would give a listen

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr

Sounds like it has the potential to be a bigger trainwreck then Lulu by Lou Reed and Metallica so I would definitely listen to it.

Okay, this probably doesn't fit together at all but I'd go with:

Guitar: Jimmy Page

Bass: Paul McCartney

Drums: Ringo Starr

Vocals: Thom Yorke

Keyboard: Mike Garson

Songs:

Alladin Sane

The Battle Of Evermore

Not once does the diversity seem forced -- the genius of the record is how the vaudevillian "When I'm 64" seems like a logical extension of "Within You Without You" and how it provides a gateway to the chiming guitars of "Lovely Rita. - Stephen T. Erlewine on Sgt Pepper's

The Dirty Mac supergroup was pretty good, but I'll make a couple of adjustments.

John Lennon - Lead vocals/ Rhythm guitar

Eric Clapton - Lead guitar

John Entwhistle - Bass guitar

Mitch Mitchell - Drums

Songs:

While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Everybody's Got Something To Hide

Hey Joe

I was tempted to mention the Dirty Mac but Keith Richards held them back.

John Entwistle is an excellent swap a-hard-days-night-ringo-15
