This is a special oddball question poll, a kind of "imagine if" poll. Going back in time etc...

All these situations are cast iron guaranteed, ie you can't get fired. You're a member of the team, the inner circle. Which position would you choose.

:lol:

The Beatles. It’s just tea and it’s The Beatles! I’d take notes and photos. Later, I’d write several books and make millions.

Way better than being a drug mule or washing Keith Richards’ stank jockstraps. The Sting one would probably piss me off after an hour. The parenthesized “friend” with the Elton option is a little...scary.

I’d play tambourine with any of these bands for the chance to be on tour and maybe even in the studio with them, so The Kinks it is. They also seem less bay crazy than a lot of the other bands, seems less likely I’ll get caught in the middle of some absurd rock n roll pitfall that brings everyone down and leaves people hurt.

The Stones laundry boy. It's the one that lasts the longest. Job security is good to have.

Who wouldn’t want to superglue a million pieces of a guitar together every night? It’s like a dream job.

Beatles job - nice and easy and right in the middle of the swinging sixties!

Stones, Who, Sabbath, Kiss and Hendrix - too much like hard work

Kinks & Yes - Boring

Sting - I wouldn't lift a finger for that t**t

Floyd - Too painful

Elton - A pain in the ass

Sting...exactly. I don't care how talented he is, I'm guessing I wouldn't get along with him.

Floyd's my #2 band but if Roger Waters punches me once, I'm returning the favor! "You got to strike when the moment is right without thinking!"

I considered The Who option but yeah, that sounds like hard work which I'm slightly allergic to.

You need to brush up on your Kinks' history!

Accidental hot tea in her face. Oops. Again an again until I’m fired or she stops asking for tea. It’s a win/win situation! :blaze:

Hendrix, I'd be a master (and likely famous) luthier by 1970 with all that practice.  The rest would have been history.  Why am I even wasting time here with you bitches?

You've pretty much covered it for me. No further comment necessary at this time. :)
