Create a Legendary Performance

Yes, I know there have been plenty of "Create a Supergroup" Threads in the forums, but here's a new idea to put on that. One supergroup, one song, what would it be?

Rules:
1. The band must contain all living members. (Sorry, no Zappa...)
2. The band must contain musicians from similar genres
3. The song cannot be a song made famous by any musician in the band.
4. The performance cannot be one already done (no playing Sweet Home Chicago with a plethera of legendary guitarists, Zappa playing Happy Together, etc.)
5. No two members can be from the same band.


Ok, here's mine:
Vocals: Peter Gabriel (Genesis)
Guitar: Robert Fripp (King Crimson)
Bass: Chris Squire (Yes)
Drums: Clive Bunker (Jethro Tull)
Keyboards: Keith Emerson (The Nice)

Song: The Final Countdown made famous by Europe

    Well, he still lives on in my heart and mind, haha.


    Vocals - Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden)
    Matt Pike - Guitar (Sleep, High on Fire, Kalas)
    Bass - Steve Digiorgio (Death, Autopsy, Sadus)
    Drums - Steve Flynn (Atheist)
    Saxophone - Ian Underwood (Frank Zappa)

    Song- 21st Century Schizoid Man (King Crimson)

    I like the idea of a metal rendition of the prog rock classic (though with a non-metal saxophonist since you can't find the instrument too often in the metal genre).

    I just perfectly hear an accoustic guitar version of it with the bluesy voice and a deep organ. Slowed down a little bit too....
