Fine.  We'll strike him from the five or six options Toby gave, and 
I'll add in Jack Bruce to replace him (hoping Jack can overcome his 
health problems) or as a lesser but still interesting choice, Chris 
Squire.  Problem is, as hapijac said:  Pete likes the spotlight -- and 
I don't see him giving up any of it.
