He just about did, for a few songs at least, during his first 48 hours in the UK.
I’ve often wondered about, as the schism between John and Paul grew during 1969, if John, George, and Ringo should have just let Paul go on his merry way, and brought in Harry Nilsson in on piano, vocal, and writing chores, with Klaus Voorman handling bass duties. It’s plausible.
Doug Wimbush in the Jimi Hendrix Experience

Dolly Parton fronting Led Zeppelin...
As much as I appreciate Phil Lesh, I've often wondered what The Grateful Dead would have sounded like with a more Jamerson-esque, pocket-oriented bassist, along the lines of George Porter Jr. or Chuck Rainey or Kenny Aaronson or John Paul Jones.
They would have sounded better. I was house engineer at a DC club for a number of years. There was a Dead cover band that had a standing gig every Monday night. The bass player was a very groove oriented player, he was great. I'm not a Dead fan, but they were enjoyable, largely due to him.

Ok, here's a serious one: How about Larry Taylor (great blues bassist with Canned Heat, John Mayall, and others) with ZZ Top?
Actually, I think that would've worked really well.
Were you familiar with The Paladins, from San Diego? They sorta came close to that. Then there was a side project of guitarist Dave Gonzalez, the Hacienda Brothers, with late singer-songwriter Chris Gaffney(who did play in Dave Alvin’s band), in the same stylistic vicinity.
Either you knew about this, or....you had it coming....
