I'd have to go with Dave Gilmour. I never really liked Bolton's playing on the
Who tours that I've seen, but frankly, I was real disappointed that there was a
second guitarist at all, not to mention all the horns, singers, blah blah... I
like the Who as a four-piece band, with the possible exception of a keyboardist
to fill in occasionally, since PT can't play guitar and keyboards at the same

Greenday: My Generation - I really had no idea that they have already done
this! I'll have to pick up the CD.
Little Village: Squeeze Box - John Hiatt's "hillbilly on crank" vocals and Ry
Cooder's slide solo would give this song a whole new level
Eric Clapton: Sally Simpson - preferably with a long, long guitar solo... :)
Van Morrison: One Life's Enough - I think this is a perfectly structured song
for his structure-less vocal style
Ray Charles: Blue Red & Grey - think about it...
