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.

So I guess James is a horrible frontman because he didn't want to sing and wanted someone else to do so.

 

Your logic and argument is flawed.  Just another bandwagon Ulrich-hater.

Yeah, I'm going to have to agree here. Lars may have been "on top of the world" but it sure as poo wasn't from a talent perspective. He was massively successful, but he's not very good at his craft individually.

Being the weakest link in Metallica means nothing.  They are a once in a lifetime group.  The argument is flawed because saying he sucked when he was 18 means he never improved.  Much like saying Michael Jordan is horrible because he didn't make Varsity as a freshman, lol.

 

He's no drum god, but he's far from awful even at this stage in his life.

 

Also, the word competent and drummer should never go together...as a brain dead monkey could beat a drum with a stick. :D

 

Lars said it best himself, he was the best drummer in the world...to play behind James Hetfield's guitar.  No more, no less.  Late 80s though, he was metal's top drummer.

I'm not sure where these Lars rumors have come from. I've seen him on live DVDs and have all the Metallica albums. I don't see how the criticism of him adds up to what I'm seeing and hearing imo.
