    I've been thinking about this question for a couple days right now with this in mind - not "who's my favorite musician for each instrument in a rock band," but "which musicians, if you put them together, have styles that would blend in interesting ways?

    And really, it's a surprisingly tough question. I sort of arbitrarily started with George Lynch because he's a great player who isn't doing much of anything at the moment. I could see Dug Pinnick being an interesting compliment - both of their playing has a lot of groove to it while still remaining heavy. For a drummer who'd play off that well... Idunno. I sort of want to toss Danny Carey in here because he's such an out-there, inventive player, and I think he'd be worth at least an audition, but there's a ton of ebb and flow to his playing in Tool, and a very circular sort of feeling to the way he grooves, and he'd have to be a lot more on the beat, I think, for this to work, so it'd be a real wild card. If that didn''t work though, hell, maybe the dude from the Red Hot Chili Peppers - his playing was great on Satriani's last, and he's certainly familiar with groove-based hard rock playing. It would be a more natural pairing. Vocals I'd be less concerned - just a good hard rock singer. If Chris Cornell were still alive I could see him fitting in well here, maybe, but someone in that vein.

    I was thinking more modern 80s

    Truth be told, I wish Peart, while he pretty much quit touring, would still write/record/release music. And with anyone. Maybe...

    Neil Peart on drums.
    Devin Townsend on rhythm guitar.
    Kevin Moore on keys.
    Maybe Mattias IA Eklundh on lead guitar, just to fuck things up.

    I think the only supergroup I've really ever spent any time listening to is The Damned Things. That album was super fun, but then really, aside from Ian from Anthrax, I couldn't name a single other dude in that band, nor any of the other bands they came from

    This legendary picture.



    The classic Slayer+Run D.M.C.+Beastie Boys lineup all under the supervision of Rick Rubin when he was still "good".

    Ice-T with any thrash or death metal band is also a recipe for a magnum opus. Body Count is fun as fuck. Any band would work, Ice-T rules. Morbid Saint, Cannibal Corpse, Kreator, you name it. Throw Ice-T in there.

    I think you mean "Backing Vocals: Michael Anthony".

    Legendary backing vocalists, not really a bass player...

    Honestly, my real answer would be.

    Vocals: Vince Neil
    Bass: Nikki Sixx
    Guitars/Dungeon Master/LARPing: Varg Vikernes
    Drums: Tommy Lee
    Management: Dave Mustaine

    If Varg Vikernes was able to form the same kind of working relationship he had with Euronymous with Motley Crue......that would be just what the world needs right now.
