  • What's your dream band?

    Do you have an ideal band in your mind? If so, what would it look and sound like? What would be the lineup, style of music, personalities, etc?

    And if you have a band, how close is it to your ideal?

    How about a singer that isn't a retard, stuck on themselves, isn't a drug additict or a former drugger.
    That would be nice, for starters.

    Then I would like no mic to sing or talk into. I would never want to sing anything, no backups. Nothing.
    Just give me a huge assortment of pedals that I have total control over, if I ever decide to use any of them. Then I'd want a soundman that does nothing but listen to me and make my **************** sound good. I would give the sound person control of lead boosts.
    Of course a guitar tech would be kinda cool too but I like tinkering with my own guitars so all I really need is a guy to have guitars ready for me in case I need one with a different tuning.

        If I could combine the vocalists and keyboardist from my R&B band with the guitarist and drummer from my funk band, intead of two OK bands, I'd have one great one.

              The potential for bloodshed cannot be overlooked.

              Except for the singers, at one point we were all one band. Lot's of talent. But oh, the ugliness. I finally got tired of separating the combatants and mopping up the blood.

                  Heya Corn, what part of this fair state do ya hail from?

                  As for my ideal band...

                  Practically, it would be just four piece, guitar, bass, keys, drums, and everyone would sing their ass off.

                  Impractically, it would be like the Joe Cocker "Mad Dogs and Englishmen" band...horn section, backup singers, and all.

                    My ideal band would be me on guitar with King Diamond singing, Dave Lombardo on drums, and while on recordings I would handle the bass duties, in concert I'd have like D'Arcy or Sheryl Crow fill in to fulfill the hot chick quota.

                    We would play punked-out thrash metal, but with a disco beat so you could dance to it.

                    Kind of like The Bee Gees meets Minor Threat.

                      My dream band would play music that people dig. AND if someone came along and requested "Close To The Edge", be able to play it.

                      Guess I'm in my dream band Our lineup:

                      -singer who plays guitar when needed
                      -drummer with perfect pitch and cool sense of mixing acoustic w/ electronic and sings backing vox
                      -bassist who also plays chapman stick
                      -kick-ass guitarist
                      -myself on keys, guitar, congas, percussion, blues harp, backing vox, and whatever else needed to flesh out the music

                      Gotta say that as we evolve and likely add players (sax, horns, maybe a girl singer), I hope the chemistry doesn't change too much.

                        I'd like to play 50s/60s R&B/soul, maybe some early funk.

                        guitars, bass, drums, horns... need vocals too.



                        the band I'm playing in is NOTHING like that... (which is why I want something totally different)

                          I'd really really really like to find myself in Pearl Jam somehow.

                            It'd be...


                            Me on bass
                            Steve Morse and Andy LaRoque on guitars
                            Mike Portnoy on Drums
                            Matt Guillory on Keys
                            Russell Allen on vocals

                            We'd be doing a metal tribute to 80's and 90's bad pop music.


                            Gwar would open every show for us.

                              Two drummers, each without a hihats, a Chapman stick player on bass, Robert Fripp and Lee Flier on guitars, and Michael Franks as lead vocalist. Damn, that would be heaven!
