Miles Davis and Jimi Hendrix. Fans of the late trumpet and guitar masters have long known that Miles and Jimi had planned to record together before Hendrix's sudden death in 1970. But less is known about the bass player they wanted to recruit: Paul McCartney, who was otherwise employed at the time. This tantalizing detail about the super group that never was — jazz standout Tony Williams would have been on drums —is contained in an oft-overlooked telegram that Hendrix sent to McCartney in 1969.

Damn, that would have been sooo amazing. I can imagine Miles Davis and Hendrix together, but I think Paul would have been left eating dust with these two on board!
