Okay I'll be honest, Hallowed Be Thy Name, Run To The Hills or The Lonliness of The Long Distance Runner all by Iron Maiden would have my fav. riffs but it'd be boring if it were all I.M.

It's too hard to pick tracks, so I'm going to go ahead and list make my own 'Super-Band' of some of my favorite musicians.

Three singers because A.) I can't decide and B.) I love bands that switch off singing duties. I made sure to pick three singers that all sounded different.
Vocals - Jesse Lacey
Vocals - Erza Crack
Vocals - Dan Potthast
Bass - Les Claypool
Drums - Josh Freese
Songwriting - Thomas Kalnoky
Guitar - Sean Rogan

If I wanted to go ska, I definitely include
Trombone - Rick Bisenius
Trumpet - Dan Stoppelman
Saxes - Dan Ross

Man, that would sound Fucked up.

12-20-2006, 05:45 PM
Yeah, I like the superband idea, even if it's been done before.

Vocals - Zoli Teglas
Guitar - Ian D'Sa
Bass - Karl Alvarez
Drums - Mark Gajadhar
Songwriting - Tim McIlrath (if he's busy, get Tomas Kalnoky)

Disclaimer: By no means do I consider any of these people the absolute best at what they do, I just consider them my favorite at what they do.

Someone made a thread like that about a year ago (I want to say it was Jesse, I don't remember)

Either way, it's fun to imagine what the bands would sound like. Even if the musician is good, some people just wouldn't work in bands outside of their own.

Take Les Claypool. One of the (if not the) best bassists alive today. But can you imagine a Primus style bassline in any of your other favorite bands songs?
Bar a few, no not really. It'd be interesting at the least.

Everyone's taste in drummers reeks of fail. Go die now.

ANyhoo, my favorite (although far from the best) are:

Vocals: Bohemian Rhapsody- Queen. *drools*

Guitar: The Offspring- Change the World. I don't know why, I just love it

bass: Around the World- RHCP

Drums: Obviously a tough one, but I'll go with Good Times Bad Times by Led Zeppelin. Rush's "Limelight" is way up there too.

I'll go ahead and say you're very, very wrong on that one.

The writing on the guitar for the entirety of that song, is fucking phenomenal. Randy Rhoads was a fantastic musician, just because the intro riff has become a cliche shouldn't undermine the fact that it genuinely is fucking brilliant.

I can't do songs, so I guess I'll just go with the Superband concept, even if that's difficult too. There's something in me that automatically resists Chris Cheney of The Living end playing guitar for Matt Bellamy of Muse to sing to, you know?

This pretty much dumbs down to a stretch of favorites. I'm going to name artists and bands that aren't necessarily good but would make something different together that I believe I could actually listen to.

Vocals/Guitar - Matt Bellamy (Muse)
Guitar/Vocals - Pete Loeffler (Chevelle)
Bass - Sam Rivers (Limp Bizkit)*
Drums - Dominic Howard (Muse)**
Keyboard at need - Ray Manzarek (The Doors)

*I have a guilty pleasure for Limp Bizkit, but I still believe that for all that the instrumentation is brilliant, and that the bass parts in the songs are some of the most ignored ever because some member of the band that will remain unnamend prefers to take up the spotlight than to sing most of the time.
**Thomas, if you're going to get on my case about not choosing some drummer you like, give me a fucking break. I'm not saying he's the best, I'm saying that every single weird, spacy Muse song that has ever come out he's managed to find something that fits perfectly for, like the song Showbiz. I barely notice the drums in Muse because they don't clash with anything and are pretty much exactly what drums should be.

As far as I know it's a guitar using an octave tuner, to make it self sound 1 octave lower - i.e exactly like a bass.

It's a bass.

I read somewhere that they hired a studio musician or something for it.

Yeah, that's probably right. I read somewhere about the octave tuner, but I always suspected they just had a studio musician do it.

Liking the Offspring is neither immature nor mature, it's a preference.
However saying that The Offspring have the best musical work compared to everything ever, is not only immature, it's downright fucking stupid.

And you didn't answer my question, what are you, 12?
