Fantasy Rock Supergroup

In celebration of the new release by new supergroup Them Crooked Vultures, we asked you to named your Fantasy Supergroup


We've compiled the results and now we can reveal which singers, guitarists, bassists and drummers you would name in your ultimate supergroup.


The results are in - the greatest Supergroup, as voted for by you, contains half of Led Zeppelin, a Chili Pepper and a true guitar legend.

Robert Plant narrowly beat competition from Free/Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers to claim the singer spot in our fantasy band, while guitar god Jimi Hendrix beat Percy's bandmate Jimmy Page to the guitar position.

The drum seat is filled by Zep sticksman John Bonham - with Keith Moon, Neil Peart and Dave Grohl separated by just four votes in second to fourth spots. Animal from The Muppets also received a handful of votes.

But the surprise of the poll was in the bassist section, with Red Hot Chili Pepper Flea upsetting the established order by beating John "The Ox" Entwhistle and Zep's John Paul Jones into second and third by just three and four votes respectively.

Here are the Top Ten of each category:
