My Fantasy band - John Taylor, Duran Duran
Interview by Gillian Orr
Friday, 3 April 2009

Vocals - Justin Timberlake
The most elastic blue-eyed soul singer around. A great dancer. For the deeper shades of blue I'd like John Legend, whose voice I'm in awe of. Katherine Jenkins, Rihanna and Beyoncé could doo-wop.

Guitars - Nile Rodgers and Steve Jones
On rhythm I'd like Nile Rodgers of Chic. Steve Jones of The Sex Pistols would play lead; he can punch a hole in the sky.

Bass - Stuart Zender
If I sit out, I'd hire Zender, who was Jamiroquai's bassist and now plays with Mark Ronson.

Piano - Jools Holland
This is a tough one, but I like the one-man boogie-woogie party.

Drums - Phil Collins and Bill Bruford
I saw them double drum together to spectacular effect many years ago and never forgot.

Horns - Earth, Wind and Fire
If we're sticking to living musicians, I would borrow EWF's crack section.

Strings - Bond
A blatant attempt to up the sex appeal with this string quartet.
