    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.

    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
