As much as I deplore this kinda thread, the Aaron vs Robin thread and a post I just made made me think of this.
If you could choose anyone out of the NIN live line-up past/present/future (ha) who would it be? Bonus points for cool ideas for other musicians altogether though.

Personally?
Guitar: Aaron North
Bass: Danny Lohner
Keys etc: Charlie Clouser
Drums: Josh Freese

Purely because that would be so incredibly different and exciting to watch live.

Guitar: Robin Finck
Guitar: Danny Lohner
Bass: Jeordie White AKA Twiggy Ramirez
Drums: Chris Vrenna
Keyboards: Stephen Gregory Bier Jr. AKA Madonna Wayne Gacy

And well, as the thread title states, it really is merely a fantasy after all. :p

Trent, 25-year-old Trent, 30-year-old Trent, 40-year-old Trent, and 80-year-old Trent.

They can switch off instruments and all sing on AtLitW.

(The 80-year-old Trent from the future confirms that NIN will be around for another 30+ years.)

Ilan Rubin, Danny Lohner, Alessandro Cortini, Robin Finck, and Justin Meldal-Johnsen

The goal is for there to be tons of energy in the show. Also yes, I'm aware this lineup basically happened for a few songs at the end of the Wave Goodbye Tour and it was great.

Guitar: Aaron North - his stage presence is 10/10 for NIN:live, and I don't talk about his sick episodes, but the overall energy and enthusiasm he brings and reflects. I adore Robin, but Aaron would be the only thing for us post-Fragility NIN fans to experience that certain NIN-vibe.
Bass: JMJ - A nice guy who also has a nice stage presence, and after the Tension tour, we know how much it matters. I'd like to check out a show with Pino, sure, but if I had to choose, I'd rather go crazy. Jeordie, I don't know. He certainly looks badass, but he looks like a bored zombie as well. Dunno, should've seen him live.
Drums: Joey Jordison - I just love it when he touches the drums, and I'm really digging his drum settings.
Synth: Klayton from Celldweller, basically Celldweller) - Cool guy, really easy to like, likes to experiment, knows how to act live, and handsome as fuck. Just like Aaron, he could definetly rewok elements of some songs into his own taste, that could blend well with NIN. He and Trent playing together is my gay fantasy.
Mandatory female backup-vocalist: Mariqueen Maandig - I know even Joey and Klayton would join the band sooner, than MQ, and I can see Trent's point on this (though devastated by it), but in my fantasy she's there (I mean, in the band, lol), and it works out quite nicely. Deep, Sin, Get Down Make Love, just to name a few songs they could rock together. <3 She and Trent rocking together is my hetero fantasy, and no, HTDA doesn't count, because I said "rocking".

Inb4 Jerome gets no love!

The best would be just Trent. No other members.

He would be wearing Justin's 'fro.
He'd have Charlie's autotuned theremin.
Danny... I don't know... maybe he could be wearing an Underworld (movie) T-shirt.
He'd have Pino's neck.
Chris is a typewriter covered in meth.
Alessandro can hang some flashing LEDs around his neck or something.
Robin could be represented by really bad body odour.
Mariqueen would be strapped to his back.
He'd be wearing Jeordie's (Twiggy's) dress.
He'd have four extra arms so he'd be able to play drums just like Josh Freese. But they flip-flop a bit.
A red handkerchief would hang out of his back pocket. That's Aaron, in case you were wondering.
Obviously he'd have Maynard's dick.

Oh, and he'd be strung up like a marionette and controlled from above the stage. One-man band!

(I dare someone to draw this)

Pino and Dean Garcia on bass (nothing wrong with two bassists)
Danny Carry and Ilan on drums (we can have two, and since I'm dreaming anyway, let's add Jeff Ward to the mix and make it three drummers).
Lisa, Sharlotte, Mariqueen and Toni Halliday (backup singers)

Sure, why not. Have yet to see them live unfortunately, so I can only speak from the dvds/videos etc, so besides TR I'd like to see...

Alessandro Cortini - Keys
Josh Freese - Drums (love Ilan too but come on, JOSH FREESE guys.)
Robin Finck - Guitar (Though not my personal favourite, he definitely is part of NIN and thus mandatory)
Jeordie White - Bass

The Fragile lineup was still for me the best in terms of the blend of musicianship and showmanship.

Well, one year ago I thought that the best line-up was:

Reznor,
Vrenna,
Lohner,
Finck,
Clouser

But after LITS Tour & Festivals/Tension 2013 Tour I think that my dream line-up could be:

Reznor,
Freese,
Eustis,
Finck,
Clouser

Trent
Robin – I liked Aaron, but Robin is NIN’s guitarist. Aaron's "swing my guitar around" bit gets old fast.
Ilan – Watch his Guitar Center drum solo and then tell me how Freese is a better drummer.
Alessandro – Clouser’s good at theramin…Alessandro is better at everything else.
JMJ – Because he’s a better bassist than Lohner, Ramirez, Eustis…and doesn't just stand there like creepy Pino.

OR, just get the members of RUSH to be his backing band since Geddy Lee is the best bass player alive AND plays keyboards, Neil Peart is the best drummer alive, and Alex Lifeson can play anything. Problem solved!!

I hope that we someday get something along the lines of Still in a touring format. I really, really do.
I don't know the names of those kinds of musicians, but i'm waiting for the day we see trent at a piano, accompanied by an acoustic guitar, a string quartet, a percussionist and a few loops and samples. And he can let the Mrs. sing too.

that being said:

Trent-Vocals
David Bowie- Vocals
Brian Eno-Keyboards/electronic drums/electronic bass
Elevenism-Guitar

Ilan – Watch his Guitar Center drum solo and then tell me how Freese is a better drummer.

I found Freese's rendition of "Piggy" far, far superior to Ilan's, and for me that is where the drums really come through.
