Default Your Dream Team

Ok, no doubt stuff similar to this has been done before but I am adding a twist. Kinda.

Mission
You are the lead singer of a band. Pick a maximum of 4 musicians throughout history, who you would personally love to play along with. The musicians can be dead or alive upon picking them.

Inspiration
Think of your favourite style of rock, and the people who influence your tastes.

Choose your Weapons
Pick your favourite musicians, from basists to drummers, trumpet players to guitarists. No more than 4!

Now, this is all subjective to your tastes. So no abusive crap to someone who wants a member of greenday as their guitarist etc etc. Deal with it.


EDIT: Remember, the hardest part is picking someone who would make your style of music the best. Don't just pick your favourites because it would be cool, pick them because they would compliment your tastes the most....Though now that I think about it, tastes = favourites so they are kinda one in the same. ANYWAY....enough from me, have fun kids.

or instead of Matt the bassist from Death From Above 1979... his name has slipped my mind right now I think it is Jesse though.

Luke Jaeger (Sleep Terror) - Guitar
Michael Amott (Arch Enemy, Carcass) - Guitar

these two would combine the best of both worlds, Prog Death and Melodic Thrash. The results would be mind numbing.

Stefan Fimmers (Necrophagist) - Bass

very few bassist I have heard capture the essence of controlled chaos like Fimmers does. His sheer inventiveness and fretwork leave almost everyone in the dust.

Gene Hogan (Dark Angel, Strapping Young Lad) - Drums

who better than the God of Thunder to be pounding away at the skins? Able to throw down blast beats (he along with Cryptopsy's Flo Mounier can do double blast beats as well) as well as jazz fills, nothing comes close to his style and precision.

We'd be the best jazz/death band ever. With actual lyrics. Ephel Duath better watch their back.
