The ultimate rock band would be composed of Keith Moon, Eric Clapton and Freddie Mercury, according to a new survey,

A poll conducted on behalf of Guitar Hero World Tour found that the late, great Keith Moon is the drummer most aspiring British musicians would have wanted in their dream band lineup.

Clapton beat the likes of Brian May, Jimi Hendrix and Slash to be named the ultimate axeman while May's former Queen bandmate Mercury was seen as the ideal vocalist to front any rock band.

More than a third of Brits admit to having fantasised about being a rock legend, according to the Guitar Hero World Tour research.

But following in the footsteps of Mercury, or the UK's other ultimate frontmen - Jon Bon Jovi, John Lennon and Robert Plant, among others - is only narrowly more appealing than taking to the stage armed with a guitar, the poll suggested.

The lead singer was adjudged to be the coolest member of any band by 33 per cent of respondents but some 27 per cent aspired to emulate their favourite guitarists.

The results of the Guitar Hero World Tour ultimate rock band poll were:Ultimate frontman

1 Freddie Mercury (Queen) - 28 per cent

6 Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin) - 5 per cent

2 Ringo Starr (the Beatles) - 14 per cent
3 Dave Grohl (Nirvana) - 11 per cent
4 John Bonham (Led Zeppelin) - 9 per cent
5 Nick Mason (Pink Floyd) - 7 per cent
