AKA Pretty much King Crimson in one incarnation or another. I wouldn't want any of the ELP lot on anything except bass mind...

My Ultimate Band:

Drums: Me
Bass: David Ellefson
Lead Guitar: Kirk Hammett
Rhythm Guitar and Vocals: Max Cavalera

I would love to see what would come of this!!!

ledzeppelins666 12-05-2006 12:48 AM

Re: Your Ultimate Band
 
Wasn't this a thread before the Off Topic wipeout?

Anyways,
Jimi Hendrix-Lead Guitar/ Rythym Guitar [Just as good at rythym as lead]
John Entwistle-Bass
Robert Plant-Vocals [Now there's a shocker]
Acoustic Guitar/ Vocals [sometimes] -Dave Matthews
Steel Lap Guitar- David Gilmour [Porbably wouldn't work but would sound cool]
Percussion- Trilok Gurtu
Drums- Bonzo

The main problem with this group would be the chemistry between the artists. But since this is the "Ultimate Band", I guess I could say that.

Spence 12-05-2006 12:37 PM

Re: Your Ultimate Band
 
I tried to get one line-up, but I couldn't. I think I would like to put all these guy in different combinations to see who comes up with what, then i'll make my final decision. These guys would be in rotation:

Drums:Vinnie Colaiuta/Dennis Chambers/Tony Willaims
Bass: Victor Wooten/Stanley Clarke/Larry Graham (and Background Vocals)
Guitar: Al Di Meola/John Schofield
Keys: Chick Corea
Vocals: Prince (also guitar)
Trumpet: Miles
Sax: Coltrane
Percussion: Airto

I would love to hear any combination of the above.

Imagine Chambers, Graham, Schofield, Prince. My god this would be great!!!!!!

Hey Rossy_j! Cool list here, man. I like it! But...doesn't Stanley Jordan play guitar? I was not aware that he played bass, also. I have 3 cds of his from the late 80's in which he plays the guitar like a piano, but he doesn't play bass. Just curious...Play On! ;-)

Maybe you meant to type Stanley Clarke??

Actually Jimi had made a jam session with Tony Williams and Jack Bruce at Record Plant in 1969 (tape not found so far), and also supposed to play with Miles and Gil Evans just a few days after his death.
