    What would make your dream band? What 4 musicians, combined, do you think would be the greatest band ever? Sorta like, What's the ultimate possible combination of band members? In your opinion of course. Oh, and please state name, what instrument they play, what band they're from, and what genre the band would be. Oh, and between 3-5 members, no orchestras. Mine would be:

    Steve Harris on bass - Iron Maiden
    Marty Friedman on guitar - Megadeth, on Rust in Peace and some others
    Lars Ulrich on drums - Metallica (note: the lars ulrich that was playing on AJFA, man that album had great drums)
    Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth on vocals - Overkill

    They would play Thrash metal, really well. :bassist:

    Note: Of course, there's the issue of band chemistry, songwriting, personality clash, etc. But screw all that, this is just for fun! :hyper:

    Note2: Of course, there is no true ultimate band, therefore I am automatically adding IMO to every post. Just, you know, imagine. ;)
     
  2. Vocals- John Bush (Ex-Anthrax?)
    Lead Guitar- Mick Thompson (Slipknot)
    Lead Guitar- Dave Mustaine (Megadeth)
    Bass- Ryknow (Mudvayne)

    Bass - Les Claypool
    Drums - Martin Maurais (Kataklysm)
    Lead Guitar & Lead Vocals - Zakk Wylde (Black Label Society)
    Rythm Guitar & Backup Vocals - Alexi Laiho (Children Of Bodom)

    They would play straight-up Death Metal. Lots of insanely fast double bass pedal and bass solo's.

    Josh Homme-Guitar, vocals

    Stoner/Doom type stuff, like a mix between the Melvins and QotSA(which it kinda is).

    And Metallica, and Megadeth, and about a million others. Metal is only a portion of what I listen to (I'm a big fan of classical, embarassingly enough), but I'm in a metal mood today, which explains all of the bands being metal/hard rock.

    Band #4 would be an incredible instrumental band. Maybe one of them will read this... :cool:

    Agreed. Dimebag + Geddy would have been an unreal combination!
