BYOB (Build Your Own Band)

90 Dwarf Rogue
What would be your picks for the greatest band members coming together? Let's try to pick living artists otherwise we'd have a lot of repeats like Cliff Burton and Dime bag.

Vocals - Corey Taylor - Slipknot, Stone Sour
Lead Guitar - Kirk Hammett - Metallica
Bass - Flea - Red Hot Chili Peppers
Drums - Dave Lombardo - Slayer

Here we have a ball-busting lineup all born in the early to mid-60s. Except the frontman, whom would have to go without the mask in my band by the way.

Edit: (Yes dime bag without a space is censored for some reason.)

Trying to make something that would at least have a decent mesh.

Klayton (Celldweller, Circle of Dust, Argyle Park) on vocals
Joe Letz (Combichrist, Genitorturers, Hanzel und Gretyl, Emigrate) on drums
Richard Kruspe (Rammstein, Emigrate) on guitar
Kim Ljung (Seigman, Zeromancer) on bass
Vasi Vallis (Namnambulu, Frozen Plasma, Reaper) on sampling and synths.

Richard Kruspe (Rammstein, Emigrate) on guitar

*hugs just cuz* He's finally working on the new cd. No release date yet though. I nearly had a heart attack seeing his old Emigrate facebook account pop up on my wall.

I wanted to try this game but I couldn't decide between Dero, Till or Alexx from Eisbrecher. And 3 singers sounds ridiculous.

58 Worgen Priest
Vocals - Jonas Blum (Majestic)
Guitar - Magnus Nordh (Majestic)
Bass - Martin Wezowski (Majestic)
Keyboard - Richard Andersson (Majestic)
Drums - Peter Wildoer (Majestic)

You never said we couldn't reform broken up bands. That's the last line-up of Majestic, but with Jonas singing instead of Apollo. I loved that band, shame they haven't been together for 12 years.
