Super Group

Stopped by Alex's place yesterday, and he had an interesting post that's had me thinking since. It could be alot of fun. Only thing is, there's so many possibilities, and combinations... not to mention genres. Go check it out.

Anyway, here's my response to his post. These are not necessarily guys that I think are the best at their instruments, but who would make a very interesting band.

Vocals would be carried by Geoff Tate. The Queensryche frontman has one of the most incredible voices in rock, or metal, music today. While I don't usually get into lyrics, his are deep, and draw you in.

While I don't think keyboards would be necessary, I do think that having Jon Lord at the keys would kick some serious ass. The guy played his Hammond through a Marshall, for crying out loud! An excellent composer.

On drums, who better to have than Cozy Powell? From Jeff Beck, to Emerson, Lake and Powell, or Black Sabbath, Cozy could play any style of music, and play it well.

Playing bass would be Mike Dean, of Corrosion of Conformity. Punk, metal, hard rock, jazz, Mike can play it all. Flea, and my personal favorite,Les Claypool, would also be strong candidates, but I think Mike's style would blend a little better, while still being distinctive.

Playing ye olde guit-fiddles, I'd have John Sykes, and Steve Morse. Both incredible musicians and songwriters, it'd be interesting to see how their collaborations would sound. I'm thinking that it would be a very powerful mix.

Soon to come, the Fantasy Metal Band!
