Heres my own choices.
Drums: Brian Downey
Bass/Vocals: Phil Lynnot
Vocals: Joe Wall and the guy from Republic of Loose swapping duties.
Lead Guitar: Rory Gallagher
Rhythm Guitar: Kevin Shields
Acoustic Guitar: Paul Brady
Miscellaneous string instruments (banjo excluded): Donal Lunny
Some will probably knock my choice for being predictable, but as I'm a common idiot, I will graciously accept criticism.
Actually replace graciously with childishly.
so come on people, start blasting me with criticism for missing some glaringly obvious choices!
