Fantasy Band
« on: December 29, 2006, 12:00:50 am »
Okay, so this is a game which I've seen elsewhere, and which is pretty fun (it's partially duplicated in the "GS Musicology 101" thread, but I feel it deserves one to itself). The idea here is to put down your dream combinations of musicians (you may do more than one). They're getting together for one album - you can pick the style/name/whatever. Just be creative, it doesn't have to be musically brilliant, just interesting.

Band Name:
Members & their instruments:
Describe the album:

Here's my example.

Band Name:
Seventh Salvation (I love band-name generators)
Soaring and apocalyptic prog metal
Matt Bellamy, guitar and vocals
Herman Li, guitar
John Petrucci, guitar
Chris Squire, bass
Rick Wakeman, keyboard
Bill Ward, drums
The Album
Self titled, the album would experiment with soaring and expansive keyboards and guitars for the first half, before plunging into a heavier metal style at the end. Written by Bellamy and Wakeman. Probably wouldn't be a commercial success, but might gather a cult following.

I'll post some more ideas when I get them.

Describe the album: Throw your cell phone out the wind. Turn up the radio and floor it. Red lights are optional as you cruise along to a ripin' set of music ballands and hard running rock. The kind of stuff you can get a whoel bar to sing along with you at and nobody can give you crap for singing.

Of course, a few of these people are dead, but this is fantasy right?

Me and one of my classic rock fan friends thought of this a couple of weeks ago:

Name of band: Epik (because mispellings make EVERYTHING cool)
Genre: Hard Rock
Awesomeness: 100%

Roger Daltrey - The Who (vocals)
Slash - Guns 'n Roses (Lead guitarist)
Eddie Van Halen - Van Halen (2nd lead guitarist)
Jimmy Paige - Led Zeppelin (Rhythm guitarist)
Geddi Lee - Rush (Bass)
Neil Pert - Rush (Drums)
Jon Lord - Deep Purple (Keyboards)

Paul McCartney and John Lennon would be the band's musical writers.

Everyone in the band would probably hate each other and never get along, but it would be EPIC.
You killed Harry Potter  >:( !!!!!
Yes. Yes I did.
