    bass - me

    drums - my brother

    guitar - jeremy averitt (unknown yet brilliant guitarist/songwriter from the bands 'noisufusion' and 'the hosemobile')

    vocals (if any) - byron baily (clockhammer)

    percussion - heck, i have a million drummer friends

    we'd play anything and everything
  14. So far I think Zon player has the best band. I especially like the integration of Trent Reznor coltrane and Bach, that would be something else.
  15. I can only imagine what the VH1 'Behind the Music' would be like for that one ; -)
    "Underneath the music, things werent as they seemed. Trent Reznor and YoYo Ma were having
    a difficult time working together...." hehehe
  16. Thank you VERY much Xavier, I haven't laughed in quite a bit of time :D
  17. I hope that laughter was not at my expense (as in - "Ha ha ha. Dream on Xavier! You're not that good.") :)
  18. I don't know exactly what kind of style i would play with them, but i would like to form a band with guitarists Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth and Larry Lalonde from Primus, and former Primus drummer Tim "Herb" Alexander on drums.

    try to find a voice who could match with that
    (i like zac from ratm and anthony from rhcp, but it wouldn't fit i think)
