Rockin' the Alphabet with Kelly Polark

Today I'm playing band manager to celebrate the release of Kelly Polark's ABC's of rock 'n' roll picture book, ROCKABET: CLASSIC EDITION.

She asked: If I could choose any band members from any bands to form the best band ever, who would they be?

This was really hard. And I mean REALLY hard. How does a person choose? There are so many great people out there. So many possibilities. Maybe it's a cop-out, but I chose a group that really did exist and added a one other to make it my Dream Team.

Band Name: The Travelling Willburys.

First Gig: My back yard.

Lead vocals: George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynn

Lead guitarist: George mostly, but the rest of them can play too. (Aren't I generous?)

Bass guitarist: Jeff Lynne

Drums: Jim Keltner

Keyboards:  Diana Krall (Gotta have a lady in here somewhere!)

Who would you choose for your supergroup and why?
Here's a band name generator to create your killer band name!

ROCKABET: CLASSIC EDITION can currently be purchased online at Amazon or at select bookstores. Hardcover books will be available at various online retailers and stores in October.

Kelly Polark is also the author of BIG SISTER, BABY BROTHER and the upcoming HOLD THE MUSTARD! from Meegenius. Come visit her on Facebook and Twitter! Check out her website and celebrity book recommendation site, Book Recs of the Rock and Famous.




  1. Well, they were indeed a supergroup. Not my style of music, but they're all excellent musicians.
    Congratulations again, Kelly!

  2. Definitely so many talents in that group! Great idea!!!

    Thanks so much, Bish, for celebrating with me!!! :)

  3. Love this choice! I'd rock out with you!

    Huge congrats to Kelly!

  4. Hi Bish and hi Kelly,

    Yes, time for one of my highly collectable comments :)

    I'm delighted that Kelly's book has been released. Mine is still waiting for the parole board to make a decision.

    The Travelling Willburys were quite the supergroup. Tom Petty got to sound even more like Bob Dylan.

    I already have a supergroup. Yep my super group of adoring fans. Then I woke up. Congrats and have fun, Kelly.

    Gary :)

  5. I always thought of them as the Travelling Wheelbarrows. And first concert in your backyard? Too cool.

    Right now I am loving the Priests. And I just discovered the Benedictine nuns recorded music. So it'd be great if they joined forces ... I know, not very "rocky".

    Kelly's book looks great.

  6. I haven't heard that song in years. Lots of talent there.

  7. The generator gave me Mythical Dog, but I think I like the Inflatable Bologna suggestion better.

    Congrats, Kelly! :)

  8. Congrats to Kelly. :)

    The site gave me "Naked Pink." I like it.

  10. Lol- the band name generator came up with Hot High Heeled Sneakers- that was fun! Love your group. I would want mine to have an alternative, rock, celtic sound : ) ~ Jess
