Build a band

Recommended Posts

My wife gave me this idea when she took my son to the build-a-bear store ---

You've heard of superbands?!!

?Lead guitarist -

?Rhythm guitarist (optional)-

?Acoustic guitarist (optional)-

?Bassist -

?Percussionist -

?Keyboards -

?Lead vocals -

?other instrument ( )-

assuming they could all work together and create a chemistry (insert lottery odds here)

It just sounded like fun to see what you all would come up with.

Do the members of the band have to be alive? Just in case I'll make two bands, one if they all have to be alive( and still playing at their peak), one if they don't

Alive:(some were hard to choose so I put in alternates

Guitarist-John Frusciante/Tom Morrelo/Mike Cambell

Bassist-Kris Noveselic/Flea

Percussionist-Dave Grohl

Keyboards-Richard Wright

Lead Vocals-Chris Cornell/Eddie Vedder/Tom Petty

Dead(or no longer at their peak):

Guitarist-Jimi Hendrix

Bassist-John Paul Jones (I know he's not dead, not nesacarily passed his peak, its just that he stopped playing)

Percussionist-John Bonham

Keyboards-stickin' with Richard Wright

Vocals-Kurt Cobain/Janis Joplin/Jim Morrison

Starters

Lead Guitarist - Eddie Van Halen

Acoustic Guitarist - Eric Clapton

12 string - Steve Howe

Double neck - Jimmy Page

Bassist - Flea

Percusionist - Neil Peart

Keyboards or piano - Bruce Hornsby

Lead Vocals - Bono

Subs

Lead Guitarist - Eric Johnson

Bassist - Geddy Lee

Percusionist - Stewart Copeland

Keyboards or piano - Matt Johnson

Lead Vocals - Sting

Odds that they would get along, probably none. It would be good to see Stewart and Sting back together or at least on the same team. If the recording sessions could be made into a reality TV show I would watch it. The premise could be 'how many come out alive'.

Lead Guitarist - George Harrison/Keith Richards/Jimmy Page

Rhythm Guitarist - Malcolm Young/Pete Townshend

Acoustic Guitarist - Eric Clapton

Bassist - Jack Bruce/John Paul Jones

Percussionist - Keith Moon/Ginger Baker

Keyboards -

Would they get along? Most certainly not! I think that's what would make it so interesting and short lived!!!

How about a band already built.

Chick Corea - keyboards

Al DiMeola - guitar

Stanley Clarke - bass

Lenny White - drums

A true jazz fusion super group, put out a couple of albums

('75-'76), then all went on to successful solo careers.

If I could build a band with Floyd's categories then I'd simply resurrect the former members of the Beatles together and marvel at what type of song they would create now and wonder if it'd be as timeless as their music, again.

Several people I mentioned were actually in a supergroup or superband, Steve Howe and Jimmy Page, Asia, and the Firm. The Firm was Ok but I really liked Asia, had there first three releases. Did anyone else like Asia? I never hear any of their music on the radio anymore. Any Yes, or ELP fans out there who liked this supergroup? Or even any Bad Company and Zeppelin fans who liked the Firm?

I'm impressed that so many have chosen Billy Powell for the keyboard spot. He is defintely one who is overlooked. My line up would be:

Lead guitar: SRV

Rhythm guitar: Gary Rossington

Percussion: Ringo Starr

Keys: Billy Powell

Vocals: Ronnie Van Zant

Bass: Mike Gordon
