    HEre are some options to start with. If you want to vote for someone else, tell me so I can add them to the list.
    Bruce/Hendrix shoiuld be Bruce/Clapton, I wasn't paying attention.

    Anyway, I noticed I can't add stuff to a poll. Guess I'll have to become a moderator.
    Sorry for lying (by mistake)

    I voted for Hendrix/Reading......... but Morello/Tim.Com are great too

    and don´t forget Darrell/Rex (Pantera)
     
  4. Neither did I. I'd have to say Bruce/Clapton, but seeing as they're not on the list I went for Commerford/Morello.

    I was about to throw a fit when I didn't see "Frusciante/Flea", but then I noticed "Balzary/Frusciante".

    Sting/Summers. They worked well together when they weren't fighting.

    Well anyway, who voted for Blink. Out with it! Why the hell did you do that? Give me one reason that either of them is better than anyone else listed!

    Sorry, got a little carried away. It just seems like they aren't very skilled and Hoppus, in my opinion, writes horrible basslines. But I put them on there because I knew people liked them.

    do you think flea played better with John or Hillel?
    Just curious. It's a toss-up, but I think some of his stuff with John blended so perfectly I put them on instead of Balzary/Slovak.

    Navarro just wasn't as good, in my opinion.

    What if flea played with hendrix? I know flea isn't the best bassist (jaco was, in my opinion) he is very good, and he and hendrix both are very good at improv. It would be quite a show.

    my vote would go to flea and john, and in a pinch; commerford and morello. What about Hendrix and Bill Cox?
     
  17. I don't know about you guys but my vote would of been for Robert, and Dean DeLo, but I also like Jeff Amet, and Stone Gossard.

    Lee/Lifeson.
     
  19. I thought that most of the tension was between Sting and Stewart Copeland.

    My vote is for Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones, but I've been listening to a lot of Led Zeppelin lately.
     
  20. I think Billy Sheehan and Steve Vai make an awesome duo. Id vote for them if they were there.

    But out of the list here i vote for Balzary/Frusciante.
