Who would be in your ultimate band?...

34 posts in this topic

For me, I would construct a band that fits within the genre or genres of music I like. Also, if the lead guitarist plays with a rhythm guitarist, I give him one. I also keep in mind of any conflicts between the members. I also try to keep my band diverse. Meaning they can play a wide range of songs both soft and heavy. Anyway, here is what my ultimate band would look like:

 

Vocals: Lajon Witherspoon (Sevendust)

Guitar: Adam Zadel (Soil)

Guitar: James Root (Slipknot / Stone Sour)

Bass: Marco Coti Zelati (Lacuna Coil)

Drums: Shannon Larkin (Godsmack)

 

Lajon just has such a wide range of vocals. He can sing soft, hard, low, high, he can sing it all. I believe he is the best singer in metal today. He's who I try to model my voice after.

 

Adam Zadel is like the perfect guitarist for me. I am really into Alternative Metal. He plays both rhythm and lead (mostly lead). He can play soft, hard, or acoustic. His solos just fit just right with the song.

 

James Root is the man. He too plays both rhythm and lead, but mostly rhythm. His riffs in Stone Sour are awesome. Just like Adam he can play both soft, hard, and acoustic.  I've only listened to a few Slipknot songs, but the ones I have the guitars are great.

 

Lacuna's bass always sounds great. Marco Coti Zelati really came out of his shell on the Karmacode album for Lacuna Coil. You can really hear the bass in that album and ever since then he's kept up the pace. He plays 5 string bass that he uses both a pic and his fingers.

 

Shannon Larkin. What can I say about him? He's freaking amazing on the drums. He can play double bass drums and single bass. He can play hard. He can play soft. He can play it all. Fantastic drummer.

I could make a band that consisted of dead people, but that would kinda make the dream null for me. I also had to narrow it down to my favorite genre. Otherwise, I'd have to make multiple lists for multiple genres since I like many guitarists and it would be hard for me to choose.

"Prior to forming Metallica, it has been said that Lars Ulrich had a small beginners kit that he never played, and James Hetfield originally did not want to jam with Ulrich due to the drummer's novice abilities."

    • Yeah really dumb idea. Star players will be getting thrown out for incidental contact that the ref "misunderstands" as a helmet shot. The solution isn't adding more rules or "being stricter" so to say but enforcing the rules that are already established down the middle. Our games are evidence enough that the refs suck but damn I got tired watching other teams play and see the game decided on either bullshit flags or lack of flags. If anybody needs to be punished more it isn't the players but these POS refs the league can't get their heads noses out of the asses of. Always an excuse or some convoluted reason why the refs were right. I actually heard the announcers calling it out tons of these obvious blown calls and yet still the league stands behind the refs like idiots.
    • First I got to say, damn, people trying to instantly make us the most hated team in the league, even over the Patriots aren't they lol. With all the hate Cam already gets then add Kap even if briefly, oh lord I'd hate to picture it. Yeah that first play is what stands out to me the most. I'd expect even a rookie QB to make that read and throw the ball instead of handing it off. That drive ended up in a safety where as if he throws it to Torrey Smith it is easily a 1st down and possibly a TD as he only has to beat one man. I don't even see Kap look around any in that clip so even more so it feels like he gave it away that it was a run play and the Rams read it like a book. I don't feel like we need him nor do I feel like he is better than what we have. As for his protest, I didn't like what he was doing when he was kneeling but hey he had the right to do it. I personally think him putting his money where his mouth was, was a better way than just kneeling and I commend him for doing so. To be honest the 49'ers have said they would welcome him back. Let's not forget he would still be with them had he not voided his own contract. Somebody will sign him though I just don't see it as a starter which is what he clearly wanted to try and be by voiding with the 49'ers.
    • I feel like this is some kind of guilty admission lol and you should feel bad for voting for that Lunatic / traitor president of ours.    But guess what, you will get a chance to redeem yourself in 2020 with more information about the disgraced president  coming out every week.
