So if you could make a band of anybody from any band who would you choose? why?
The band would consist of this set up

Singer -

Guitarist -

Bassist -

Drummer -

(The Singer can be the same as your Guitarist or Bassist or Drummer)

You may only use one member from a band/act. They may be alive or dead it doesn't matter

This would be mine ^^

 

Singer - Myles Kennedy (Alter Bridge & Slash) Has a amazing voice to listen to as he sings

Guitarist - Daron Malakian (System of a down) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5bXYXI2DWE Underrated in my opinion

Bassist - Cliff Burton (Passed Metallica member) Such a great bassist on the few songs he did with Metallica before he died

Drummer - Joey Jordison (Former Slipknot drummer) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sp_PJrPgpk8

 

I tried to go for the not so obvious picks and wanted to mix it up (Hendrix, Page etc.)

Let's play:

 

Singer - Emily Hines (Metric) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQm1zs8EjAY - I mean, that's pretty obvious :)

Guitarist - Josh Middleton (Sylosis, JMP) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UwToTmTuJYk - even though I'm huge fan of Kirk Hammett, I would go with Josh, I love his style.

Bassist - Cliff Burton R.I.P. (Metallica) - my favorite bassist has to be here.

Drummer - I don't care :lol: so let's pick Ringo Starr!

That would be asick band. Thrash metal with cute vocals. Bring it on!

...

No one musician ever excelled at all of those things, and songwriting, the way Prince did.

No one.

 

I'm not really that much into the music but challenge accepted: how about Paul McCartney? John Lennon? Dave Grohl ( :P )?

 

...and Chopin or Mozart would eat him alive :lol:

well Paul Mccartney could have a case made for him but we all have our own idol and even though i'm not a fan of Prince material, he surely had the talent to do whatever he liked. Is he really the best of all, well that's impossible to tell and probably depends on personal preferences (i can argue Prince didn't know how to growl but i also think most people that like prince music prefer to avoid growling vocals for example).

 

I'll admit i wouldn't be able to pick a dream band. It's too dependent on what i would want my dream album to sound like and will also vary from each artist moment where they had a different sound too. So question is just too hard and will probably vary too much with time and with the incredible artist i discover with time :)

This is really a loaded question. There are countless ways to define 'great'. Sure, Hendrix and Prince were both fantastic at emoting with an instrument. But pure speed, no. That I'd have to give to Herman Li, with runners up Synyster Gates, John Petrucci and Eddie Van Halen. Musicianshilp, including writing music (modern)? Sullivan, Pert, Tuomas, Elfman. Instrumental wizardry? Perlman, Reinhardt, Van Halen, Rudess, Pert, Pastorius. Founding musical dynasties? Chuck Berry, Led Zepplin, Muddy Waters, Rush. Writing music? J.S. Bach (ok, there I can't think of any single person who has had more influence on Western music)

 

And so on and so forth. Best is so variable depending on what any individual values in music. Unfortunately, what one person values most, is often ignored or even denigrated by others. I think of my top half dozen bands, NONE of them have ever won a Grammy or come close to leading any Rolling Stones anything. They're just not going to win popularity contests against RIAA sponsored favorites. *shrug*  Means I get to see them in smaller venues. I win.
