My Group:

Drums

Zack Starkey - Oasis

Image

Son of the famous Ringo Starr, the guy is just a legend on drums. He makes it seem so effortless whilst retaining the ultimate in drumming beats. Has played with Oasis (where I believe he is still their drummer) and was also on tour with The Who. Being the son of one of the most famous drummers in the world is hard enough, but actually being a drummer and making it in his own way is just as tough. He walks into my line-up.

Bass

OX - Lordi

Image

How could I make a supergroup and not include someone from Lordi? The guy is an awesome bassist, and what makes it even harder is the full gear that he wears while playing. Just listen to the bass riffs, sit back and smile. Truely great. Ever tried playing a Bass with pyrotechnics attached to it?

Rhythm Guitar

Johnny Cash - Johnny Cash and the Tennesee Two/Three.

Image

This was actually a rather difficult one for me because there are so many great guitarists that could have fitted here. Bit I chose Mr Cash because he is a Rhythm Guitarist. Look up the chords and listen to the songs and you will see that Johnny didn't play the little riffs, he just backed them up. Luther Perkins played the main riffs, the solos and such on his song, and it was backed up with the song Luther Played the Boogie. Johnny was a great guitarist, and probably the greatest Rock and Roll Country star there has ever been.

Lead Guitar

Zack Wilde - Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society

Image

I have had the supreme pleasure of seeing Zack in concert before and he has to go down as one of the greatest guitarists I have ever seen. I mean, he can play ripping solos with his teeth, and behind his back as well - though not at the same time. He has so much energy and passion, it's just brilliant.

To be honest, this was the hardest one, there are so many guitarists here that would fit so well. Slash, Eric Clapton, Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, Roy Orbison, Paul McCartney, Any of the guitarists from Iron Maiden, Jools Holland, Paul Weller, Pete Townshend. All absolutly amazing guitarists, but I think Zack Pips it just for the awesomeness of playing a guitar solo with your teeth...just fantastic.

Perfect, and Lurker can play the Meat Flute.



hahaha just saw this . . . damn, that would be the most awesome set of misfits . . . what would it be, sort of punk band, rock, acoustic, or folkie? . . . either way, "Phantom Zoners" would make a damn fine name for a band if the rights aren't unattainable :wink:


Well then, sod it. Let's put together our own true Zoners Band.

I can write lyrics, some tunes and mangle guitar, keyboards & bass if need be.
Sing some too.
How about the rest of you simple f#cks?
Step up and be counted, if you be not all miscreant...[/quote]

I chose my Zone name because I can sing and play guitar. Both pretty decently, when I get a chance to warm up. I can write music, but I'm not much good at lyrics - I get so damn self-conscious when I try to write them.

While I can solo ok on my Stratocaster, I prefer to play acoustic, either six or twelve string. I'll leave it to others to blow out the speakers.

Anybody who wants John Cage in his band will be making noise, not actual music. Cage is interesting for ten minutes. I wouldn't call him an actual musician, more of a sound artist. Maybe even a philosopher of noise. But not a musician.

yeah dude, you should definitely go.

they tried to do an ATP over here in los angeles a couple of years ago. it was to be curated by matt groening (yes, creator of the simpsons). usually when they have these festival type of shows over here, i dont go. as i have said before, there are always only a small handful of bands that i would be interested in seeing, compared to the majority of the bands being ones that i dont give a shit about. and it aint worth the price or the hassle. but the lineup that old matt g. had planned was staggering. in one weekend, at three different clubs in l.a.: BUFFALO DAUGHTER!!, melvins, fantomas, wire, sonic youth WITH william winant!, the boredoms. fuck, i cant remember them all off the top of my head, but there were a ton more. buffalo daughter hasnt even played here in years, and they were going to come out for this one off. i had never purchased tickets for a "festival" so rapidly and enthusiastically. well, when i thought that it was too good to be true, it turned out it was, as (can you believe this) LOW TICKET SALES were responsible for its cancellation. i am jacks head exploding with rage. i am jacks deflated heart. i am jacks shaken confidence in my fellow human being.
low ticket sales.

well, they did end up having it, but they had to move both the location, and the dates.
consequently as a result of the date change every single band i wanted to see wasnt able to play.
it seemed like it was just a shallow husk of the festival that would have been, so i totally shined it.

See? This is what I'm on about! I made a statement intended to provoke a discussion of great guitarists, and you decided NOT to post, because you disagreed with me. That was the exact opposite of the behavior I expected. Generally, around here, if someone disagrees with you, they slam you down pretty damn hard.

Anyway, Hendrix I'll grant you, even though I'm not his biggest fan. Albert King is outstanding, but I wouldn't say he's one of the greatest. Berry is highly influential, but limited, kinda like Bo Diddley is limited. Same with Moore. I've never heard Doug Martsch.

I'd counter with Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Pete Townshend, Richard Thompson, Robert Fripp, Jimmy Page. Also riffmeister Keith Richards.

Actually, I was saving John McLaughlin for the second barrage, if one was needed. I was limiting my first list to rock guys, or at least, basically rock guys. While McLaughlin has blown out speakers in the past, a great deal of his career has been spent in Indian-influenced acoustic settings, which are a different musical space entirely.

Maybe I should have limited the entire discussion to rock and its more direct antecedents. If we include jazz and country, my original statement is on much shakier ground.

Sure, Clapton, Page and Richards copped stuff from the earlier American bluesmen. No argument, and fair comment. But so did Hendrix, and basically all the American rock guys you mentioned.

Maybe I should have said that a disproportionate number of the best guitarists come from the UK. Their influence far outstrips their size, if you know what I mean.

I was just listening to the Clash song, Garageland ("There's twenty-two singers! But one microphone/
There's five guitar players! But one guitar") and I found myself getting all dewey-eyed about this thread.

So, without further ado:

Fantasy Band Mark III!

Guitar: Sir Richard Bishop (Sun City Girls) & John Fahey.

Bass: Paul Simonon (Clash) miming over Martyn Casey's (Bad Seeds) actual bass-playing. Also, I'll throw Danny Thompson in there on Double Bass.

Drums: Yoshimi-P (Ex-member of the Boredoms)

Singer: For the Squeeze style hi-lo dual-vocal effect, I'll have Pentangle singer Jacqui McShee's soaring vocals interlacing with Mark Lanegan's growling.

Name? I'll let them borrow my band's name, Sin Agog.

If you like Keith Moon you should track down Circus. It was a BBC television special from 1968 featuring performances from Marianne Faithful, Taj Mahal, The Rolling Stones, and THE WHO!! Watching Keith Moon drum is a trip- he's in his own zone when he gets going. It's transcendental, incendiary- all the rock n' roll cliches but in his case, no way in fuck is it an act.

Oh and watching the Rolling Stones perform Sympathy For The Devil isn't bad either :wink:

can you handle the circus

Well, they're both good drummers. Damon Che is much more creative than Zach Hill though. They are both hampered by the following two facts:

1. Their music sucks.
2. Their guitarists are utterly worthless. Both of them need to practice for another ten years before they're worthy to be on stage with those drummers.

Zach need people to reel him in quite a bit. He is better in Marnie Stern about that.

Damon Che has some of the best start/stop/shifting rythms in modern music.

As for the music. I can understand not liking it. Math rock is a very particular type of music thats based more on staccato guitar work than typical chords and such.

Ian Williams in Don Caballero is quite good guitarist though and has proven himself in other bands as well, Battles being the other major band.
