    I'll take the full cast from Nickelback and spend the rest on a one legged hooker.

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    To be fair, isn't this just the second all-time salary cap thread? The one I started simply morphed to where it had the original NBA discussion and an all-time ISU discussion going on all at once.

    Hendrix
    Moon
    Tyler
    McCartney
    Hetfield (I'm not familiar with the names that were in my price range when I picked the rhythm guitarist; I flipped a coin)

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    Clapton at $4 and Ginger Baker at $1 are big steals

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    Bono for $3 is a steal.
    JPJ for $1 is just an error.

    I think the tougher part of this is not the salary cap, it's getting guys who would work together. I don't see Jaco Pastorius and Axl Rose being a good match, for example. It's more like, what flavor of band do you want?

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    A lot is personal preference, but I'd question some of the list order.

    I'm selecting mostly by versatility and a touch of song writing ability. If the guy can do much more that just their category that has to help right?

    Jim Morrison $1 (this is personal preference but I'd take him over anyone on the list despite the price)
    Eric Clapton $4
    Neil Young $5
    Flea $4
    Dave Grohl $4

    I only spent $18. I guess I could trade Neil for Pete with the extra, but I'd be pretty happy with the group as is. Honestly if I was going to make a change I'd save the dollar for Morrison and give it to Chris Cornell.

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    I'll take Morrison, Morello, Peart, Fieldy (pre Jesus), and Ray Manzarek on keys. But Fieldy's bass amp better be pre-mic'd.

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    John Paul Jones and McCartney are WAY undervalued.

    I'll go Plant, Clapton, Keith, JPJ and Grohl
