If you could invite your dream band or super group of your making to dinner who would you invite and why? Invite for the quality of chat, stories and maybe an after dinner jam session!

Mine would be:
Singer - Eddie Vedder
Bass - Geddy Lee
Drums - Dave Grohl
Guitar 1: Paul Gilbert
Guitar 2: Jack White

There's no way I'd be able to keep up, with the chat or with the music!

After a time, you may find that having is not so pleasing a thing after all as wanting. It is not logical, but it is often true. Live long and prosper!

That's why I invited him...also thought about Alex Lefeson but thought about it for a second and decided not to, as there would be no wine left for me.
