I was thinking about this on the way to work today. Who would be in your ultimate band? For me, the answers would change from mood to mood... Here's my current mood: Guitar: Ani and Prince. Piano: Tori and Thelonius.(I think that such opposing styles and philosophies would complement each other). Drums: Gene Krupa. If the people have to be alive, I think I would say the drummer from Green Day, maybe (can't think of his name right now). Bass: Bass would be a tough call... Paul D'amour? Maybe Justin Chancellor? Flea? John Entwistle? I think my choice would most likely be Les Claypool (that man is ****ing unreal on a bass). Sitar: Ravi Shankar (no question, he has no peers) Cello: Yo Yo Ma Vocals: Probably Maynard (with complementary vocals by Layne Staley & Chris Cornell, and background vocals by just about everyone in the band) The writing of the music would have to be a full collaborative effort, but Maynard would drive the lyrics with a lot of input from Ani. Adam Jones would have to do all the cover art (sorry, Ani, I know you won the Grammy and all, but Adam has to drive this) and direct ALL the videos. And, of course, the band would have to be promoted by Don King! What do you think?
