Please bear with me I'm in a rambling mood tonight...

First up after reading my previous post I just have one question...

Did I mention Hendrix enough?

No?

Oh...

Well then...

Allow me to continue...

Not only did he play those instruments I already mentioned but he also played the Bass. Y'kow that cool walking bass-line in 'Hey Joe'? (of course you do) He wrote that. And did you also know that he played the Guitar.

No way!!!

I know, it blew me away the first time I heard that too...

Anyways Hendrix wasn't all He's cracked up to be...his flute playing was shithouse.

But I digress...

Upon reviewing my lineup some of you may have noticed that I have gone for a very technical group. This may have led you to ask several questions. Can they play together? Can they write a song together? Can they write a song anyone would actually listen to? Well I don't know but if I knew there was an albumn coming out with these four playing together on it I'd buy it...wouldn't you?

Other questions you might ask are Where's the style? Where's the flair? Where's the heart, the soul, the blood, sweat and tears necessary for great music?

Well...

If you haven't heard RATM, you don't know about angry music, angry music thats not just Thrash 'n' Grunt: 'Now in new wildberry flavour...' I'm sorry but 'Thrash 'n' Grunt' sounds like some kind of perverted Hi-fibre eXXXtreme breakfast cereal.

'Thrash 'n' Grunt: So high in fibre it forms a gelatinous cube in your bowel...'

'You'll be Thrashing and Grunting for mercy.'

Well...that was graphic...

I apologise for that

Where was I?

Ah yes...emotion. I just have this to say. James? 'Fade to Black' and 'Nothing Else Matters' anyone? 'Nuff said. Flea well he's the part of the Chillis that you feel rumbling through your chest at their concerts, he literally makes the earth move for you. Danny, his drumming is just as emotive as Maynards singing when he plays for TOOL, its almost like he creates his own counter melodies to the vocals sometimes.

I don't think there will be any shortness on flair, creativity or emotion in the music these guys would write...

Is that the clamouring of disgruntled fans I hear? Your favourite player not in my line up? Well...make your own, show me how its done...

And yes I do realise I am alienating the vast majority of my readers with these posts. Hopefully I will have it out of my system soon and things will return to normal

I actually read the previous post last night and have thought a fair bit out it. Here's what I come up with:

Drums - Jimmy Chamberlain: I chose Jimmy because he's basically a jazz drummer that plays rock, so his tracks always have that little bit of bebop to it but with infinitely more power. Runnerup Nick Barker (ex cradle of filth, brujeria, and dimmy borgir) for pure unadultered metal.

Vocals - David Bowie: For so many reasons. His incredible character in his voice and it's range, his chameleon-like ability to blend into any musical situation, and his incredible stage presence. Runnerup: Mike Patton (Faith no More, Fantomas, Mr Bungle, heaps of others)

Bass - Flea: This was a tight competition between Eric Avery and Flea. I think Eric often writes more beautiful basslines, but Flea is just such a diverse and well rounded player.

Lead guitar - Omar Rodriguez: Mainly for in creative playing and interesting guitar sounds he comes up with. Plus he's just that little bit sloppy and wild, which i like in guitarist. Runner up - Mr Hammett.

Oh yeah, and the album is gonna be produced by Trent Reznor.
