I think I made this topic a while back but here it is again.

What would be your ideal band? Pick members alive or dead, doesn't matter. You can have 1 Singer, 1 Drummer, 1 Bassist, and 2 Guitarists. List who the person is and what band they are/were in.


Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes) - Vocals
Joey Jordison (Slipknot) - Drums
Timothy Commerford (Rage Against the Machine) - Bass
John5 (Ex-Marilyn Manson) - Guitar
Jimi Hendrix (Jimi Hendrix) - Guitar

nothing is everything in a band. its not a band if its all about showcasing one sound. a band is a little bit of everything.

Would be kind of hard for him to play two instruments at once wouldn't it? :rotfl:

But yeah, Duff McKagan played bass in GNR.

Don't do that. What would we ever do without you?

Hmm. From your standpoint, maybe. You really don't need guitars for it to be called a band...I love guitar leading bands, The Smashing Pumpkins, NIN for instance, but they use many more instruments than just guitars. And I find 2 pianos can be more effectived than a dozen guitars.

But you might just have to hear the bands I listen to to understand my point.

Most bands have keyboards. Very few real, talented piano players. Pianos can give a hallowed effect that no guitar can give. But a guitar can give an effect that no piano can give. You trade off. They are both wonderful instruments, but (I know I am channeling Jazz class when I say this) no matter what you have, they need to work together and complement each other. Different bands have different sounds. I see your point, and I understand what you are saying. The badn that you had me listen to yesterday had very talented musicians working for it. they just happened to be mostly piano players. I don't think you can truely love music without an appreciation for everything from Guitar to violen and from Flute to Sax.
