    We all hear of terms like “oil and water” or “dogs and cats”...things that just (generally) don’t gel...

    What about musicians who couldn’t/wouldn’t work together, either stylistically or personality-wise?

    I’ll start:

    Andres Segovia and Theodore Roosevelt “Hound Dog” Taylor

    What ya got?

    Winger and The Beach Boys... which is tragic because they could be called The Reb Beach Boys :lol:

    Jimmy Page and the Black Crowes. In interviews he still says his back is the reason he pulled out of the tour. But Steve Gorman said in his book that Jimmy Page told him the real reason was Rich Robinson.

    If you think Ray Charles and The Black Crowes would be a good combination, check out Bobert Bradley's Blackwater Surprise.

    I think it would probably be EVH and anyone who takes a frontman role in his band.

    I was gonna say that but I thought I'd do some research first. Apparently Warner Bros. had him booted, but he left on good terms with Eddie & Co.
