Wow, I totally forgot about the XYZ thing (I don't have any of those boots yet, so I kinda forget it even happened). However...if we forget the XYZ thing...

Robert Plant sang at the Freddie Mercury Tribute in April '92, as did Elton John.
Elton John did a song called "Runaway Train" with Eric Clapton.
Clapton toured with Harrison in '91
Harrison had Alan White on drums for the All Things Must Pass album
And Alan White joined some weird band with Jon Anderson in it.

P.J. Proby's one hit was "That Means A Lot" written by one Paul McCartney, half of the writing team Lennon/McCartney, who wrote "Every Little Thing" that appeared on the first Yes album.

If the "Every Little Thing" way breaks some rule, then you could go liike this:
Proby's song was written by McCartney
McCartney played in Wings with Denny Laine
Laine was in the early Moody Blues, who later had Patrick Moraz
Moraz was in Yes with Anderson.

This is fun! Next!

That's a good one Walrus! What I thought about with P.J.Proby was this:
Proby did an album with Focus: Focus con Proby (78)
Thijs van Leer was the only original member as far as I know by then, but Focus once had a guitar player called Jan Akkerman.
In 72 there was a guitar album called Peter Banks & Jan Akkerman, (and Akkerman also played on the 73 Peter Banks album Two Sides of..)
Peter Banks played guit.............nderson!

OK, you got me there. I don't know dick about ABBA, I can't stand them, and I wasn't around then either, and have never felt the urge to learn anything about them beyond "They have annoying songs."

I give up. I really am stuck on this ABBA thing, I really don't know a damn thing about them other than all their songs annoy me, and the only one I can recall off the top of my head is "Dancing Queen" (because U2 has referenced it a couple of times on bootlegs)...

Well here's ABBA

(And I agree with those of you who are not big fans...)

The ABBA songwriters Benny Anderson/Bjorn Ulveus wrote a musical called Chess in colaberation with Tim Rice. (Lloyd-Webbers long time partner)
Tim Rice made Aida together with Elton John.
Elton John did some songs together with John Lennon.
John Lennon uses a young drummer called Alan White on his first solo albums (before Yes stole him away...)
And in that group... Anderson.

And while I'm at it: B. B. King

Great answer, Hygrade, but not the right one. I'll give you all one more to think about 'till tomorrow: Frank Sinatra!

B.B. King did an album with Clapton, who toured with Harrison, who had Alan White on drums.

Sinatra covered "Something" by the Beatles, who wrote "Every Little Thing," covered by Yes.

Next!

Bono & U2 did "When Love Comes To Town" with B.B. King in 1989.
B.B. King did an album with Clapton
Clapton toured with Harrison.
Harrison had Alan White on drums.

I think the phrase 'did a song by the Beatles' is a bit cheap. Everybody did a song by the Beatles. Don't know the excact rules of this game, but I think the people should have met and actually done something together.
Great trail With Sinatra, Walrus. Just as good as mine: What I had in mind was this:
Sinatra did lots of duets with Bing Crosby (f.i. the High Society movie).
Crosby did a duet with David Bowie (Little Drummer Boy or something)
Bowie had a magnificent piano player on the faboulous Hunky Dory album, called Rick Wakeman.

Rick Wakem.........ndreson

You were right on the BB King thing, though I was thinking of Clapton being a part of Plastic Ono Band (Live Peace in Toronto) together with Alan White.

You're next Walrus!

Alright...

Jeff Babko played with Steve Lukather in a cover band called "Doves Of Fire" or something like that...
Lukather played guitar on Asia's "Days Like These" in 1990
Asia formerly (and in '92) had Steve Howe as their guitarist
Howe played in a little band with some dude named Jon Anderson...

True indeed, however Phil never needed Alphonso on Bass!
Phil and Friends has been amazing since fall of 2000 (when they began to stick with the same quintet) and still cookin' I've seen them many, probably too many times ;)
