BYOB (Build Your Own Band)

Movies, TV and Entertainment
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.)
Primordial Cluster F***

Vocals: Ani DiFranco, Nocturno Culto, Les Claypool
Guitars: Ani DiFranco and Nocturno Culto
Bass: Les Claypool
Drums: Neil Peart
Wow. Rush, Primus, and a little black metal? That'd be interesting xD
Jason Gobel, Paul Masvidal, Sean Reinert, Shawn Malone, and Tony Teegarden.

Although that band already exists.
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.
I have a dream:

Rush's 2nd and 3rd albums remastered by the folk metal band Agalloch.
-backing vocals by Geddy Lee
- backup percussion elements by Neil Pert
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.
Lead vocals: It would have two: Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A perfect circle), Skin (Skunk Anansie).

Lead Guitar: Daron Malakian (Sytem of down, Scars on Broadway).

Bass: Billy Gould (Faith No more).

Drums: Danny Carey (Tool).
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.
Shagrath - harsh vocals
Tarja Turunen - siren
Jacqueline Mannering - guitar
Karl Sanders - Egyptian chants/guitar
ICS Vortex - bass/clean vocals
Nicholas Barker - skin beater

Lead vocals: It would have two: Maynard James Keenan (Tool, A perfect circle), Skin (Skunk Anansie).

Lead Guitar: Daron Malakian (Sytem of down, Scars on Broadway).

Bass: Billy Gould (Faith No more).

Drums: Danny Carey (Tool).

Would love to hear this line-up
Joey DeMaio (Manowar) - Bass
Hansi Kursch (Blind Guardian) - Vocals
Anders Johansson (Hammerfall) - Drums
Luca Turilli (Rhapsody of Fire) - Guitars
Michael Pinella (Symphony X) - Guitars
Toumas Holopenian (Nightwish) Keyboards
Not a metal person ...

Bass - Tony Kanal (No Doubt)
Guitar - Bradley Nowell (sublime, if was still alive)
Vocals - Sarah Brightman and Pink
wind/percussion/horns whatever that is -RPO (royal philharmonic orchestra)

That would be my dream group
Vocals - Corey Taylor - Slipknot, Stone Sour

I expected him to be mentioned and was not disappointed when I saw he was in the op.

and I mean this in a good way, Corey's an amazing vocalist
Vocals: Miljenko Matijevic (Steelheart)
Guitar: Joe Satriani (Chickenfoot)
Guitar: Tom Morello (Rage Against the Machine)
Bass: Steve Harris (Iron Maiden)
Drums: Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater)
Matt Barlow - Vocals
Chuck Schuldiner - Guitar
Jeff Loomis - Guitar
Cliff Burton - Bass
Gene Hoglan - Drums

I don't know what kind of style this would be, but it would be epic.
I'd have 2 bands. A really metal band and a different style of rock/metal band.

First band will be the different rock/metal band
Vocals - Serj Tankian/David Draiman
Guitar - Buckethead
Bass - Shavo Odadjian
Drums - Mike Portnoy

Second band
Vocals - Johan hegg
Guitar - Jeff Loomis
Guitar - Keith Merrow
Bass - Ted Lundström
Drums - Superior Drummer 2.0 (lol I don't really know much about metal drummers or bassist)
