Okay, a previous post from giff57 led me to this - lets do something a little different; you have the power to create your own band to play your son's/cousins Bar Mitzva, divorce/wedding party, or because you passed the AICP exam. Who would be playing at your house?


Drums - Neil Peart
Guitar - Joe Satriani
Bass - Dusty Hill
Rhythm Guitar - James Hetfield
Keyboards - Eddie Van Halen
Vocals - Geoff Tate

May I recommend Bruce Hornsby on keyboards?

That would free up Eddie V.H. for lead guitar, which he is much better at!

SGB, Eddie does play a mean guitar and Bruce is great on keyboards. I could not, however, replace Joe with Eddie. They would have to both play lead like by many of the southern bands...Skynyrd, Hatchett, .38, probably the Allmans as well.

Yay! Phil Keaggy IS the best living guitarist, mostly unknown to the world at large. As you know, when asked by "Guitar" magazine what it feels like to be the greatest living guitarist, __________ (fill in the blank with famous rock guitarist, i.e, Eddie Van Halen, Eric Clapton, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, Stephen Van Zandt, et al) replied, "Don't ask me, ask Phil Keaggy."

Guitar: Jonny Greenwood (Radiohead)

Guitar: Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins)

Bass: Kim Gordan (Sonic Youth)

Drums: Dave Grohl (Nirvana/Foo Fighters)

Backing Vocals: Tanya Donelly (Belly/The Breeders)

Vocals: Jeff Buckley is my first choice, but since he's dead and therefore unavailable, I will take over the role as lead singer because I am a freaking rock-star.

I’ll second that. His CD Hot House really showcases his talent. If you don’t own it. Get it.

Having Busta Rhymes, Buddy Holly and Bubba sound like the start of a great band to me.
