    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    Just started assessing the draft board for this one ... regardless of combinations people choose, I'm curious what that band would sound like. (Not counting lineups involving more than 3/5 of an actual band).

    Also: Is a member allowed to do anything beyond limited "slot"? If Richards and McCartney can also include songwriters and harmonizers as part of their role, for example -- they're in.

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    I thought it'd be fun to draft a band “most likely to implode within 17 seconds”:

    One possibility:
    Lead guitar: Van Halen $5
    Rhythm guitar: Hetfield $2
    Frontman: Rose $6
    Bass: McCartney $2
    Drums: Baker $1

    That leaves $9 to form another group. That 5-piece would be unlistenable, but probably enduring.

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    I even ended up with change.

    Frontman: David Bowe ($5) the man can sing anything.
    Lead: I took two, because it's a rock band, and we break rules. Eric Clapton ($4) and George Harrison ($1) because While My Guitar Gently Weeps is the best
    Rhythm: Tony Iommi ($4) because screw you, he (re)invented heavy metal with his busted up fingers, he's good enough to play any guitar part he wants to in my band.
    Bass: Cliff Burton ($3) because he can play lead on a bass. Plus, his song writing....
    Drums: Dave Grohl ($4) because with Grohl, who is an amazing drummer in his own right, also comes another singer, guitar player, and bass player.

    Bowie, Claption, and Grohl sharing vocals.
    Claption, Iommi, Harrison, and Burton rotating who's got the solo.
    Grohl and Burton destroying the drive.
    And all six of them on writing together.

    I have a super group, and $3 left over to hire Bono as a roadie.

    Re: All-Time Five Piece Rock Band

    Free agent market for bass: Whoever plays that instrument on "12 Desperate Straight Lines" by Telekinesis.

    (I think they had bass-player-overlap around the time of album release, so I'm not sure.)

    Priority is "rhythm section"; melodic elements add color without drawing too much attention.

    "You don't hear it until you hear it."

    Examples:
    "You Turn Clear in the Sun"
    "I Cannot Love You"
    "Please Ask For Help"

    I know he's turned into a weenie in his older years but Sting belongs on that list as both a bassist and a frontman.

    I am guessing that Steve Perry would probably do that at this point...

    I assume Paul Stanley was $11 and couldn't be on the list. He's better than all those frontmen.
