Default Ultimate '60s band?

I was just thinking, as you do, about George Harrison temporarily quitting The Beatles and John Lennon suggesting recruiting Eric Clapton to take his place. One thought led to another, and I began thinking about what specific bands would sound like if they traded guitarists with another band. And so, I decided to ask this question: If you were forming the all-star '60s band who would be in it?
Limits: drums, bass, two guitars (you can designate rhythm/lead if you desire), piano/keyboards (optional), and lead vocals (optional). Limit one member per band, e.g. only one of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards!
Here is mine:
Drums: Keith Moon (The Who)
Bass: Paul McCartney (The Beatles)
Rhythm Guitar: Keith Richards (The Rolling Stones)
Lead Guitar: Jimi Hendrix (The Jimi Hendrix Experience)
Piano/Keyboards: Brian Wilson (The Beach Boys)
Lead Vocals: Jim Morrison (The Doors)
Wilson is present more for his vocal and songwriting abilities than his skill on the keys. Ditto for Macca. And with those two, I really don't need a specified lead vocalist, but it doesn't seem right not to mention The Doors.
Sure, it's a fanciful thread, but so is a lot of these gentlemen's music.

If led zeppelin had Jeff beck on bass and put john Paul jones on keys, they would most likely be 100 times better than the zeppelin we know today.

I worship Jeff Beck but no way would I put him on bass over JPJ. I would have Nicky Hopkins on keys. Maybe Ron wood on rhythm. Steve Marriot on vocals. Then what pet sounds says.

John Kay on vocals, Eric Clapton on guitar/writing songs, Jack Bruce on bass/writing songs, Ginger Baker on drums.

Needless to say, I like to imagine what Cream would have sounded like with John Kay's vocals. It'd be like the best elements of Cream and Steppenwolf mixed together.

Not to say that jones isn't a great player, but beck is so much better. I find his material to be more interesting.

They'd still have JPJ as a songwriter in my proposed schemata so they'd still have a lot of the charm and sound that they're defined as.
