    The Blues Brothers IS my dream band. All of them are the finest at their respective instruments, in my eyes.

    Guitar - Yngwie Malmsteen w/ Gian Pyres(sp?) on rythym

    Bass - ME!!! :rolleyes:

    Bass-Matt Freeman
    Rhythm guitar/vocal-Kurt Cobain
    Lead Guitar-Steve Vai (keep his butt in line and make him stop with the out of whack solo's and convert to punk and i'd love him)

    Anyway, mine would be
    Guitar- Trey Anastasio
    Bass- Victor Wooten
    Drums- Keith Moon

    There was also this japanese woman I saw playing this instrument that was like a harp layed flat, but strung across a log. Have no idea what it was but she was awesome with it!!!!

    bass: flea
    drums: herb alexander
    guitar: tim mahoney
    vocals: serj tankian


    genre-wise, serj doesnt exactly fit, but his voice would compliment the rest of 'em pretty well.
     
  16. My old band.:( It was so much fun to play with them.

    But if we are going imaginary:

    Drums: 0, from Slipknot. Ya gotta admit, he's pretty good.
    Lead: Eddie Van Halen
    Bass: Me. Duh
    Vocals/Rythm Guitar: Aaron Lewis

    What the heck. It would be interesting to listen too.

    Rock on
