Re: Planet Rock's Fantasy Band


 Just my opinion, and not to demean any of the people selected, but here's the only names that would make my personal 'Top 10' lists for the categories that also appear on the BBC's lists:

Singer
Robert Plant
Paul Rodgers
Ian Gillan
Ronnie James Dio
Roger Daltrey
 
Guitarist
Jimmy Page
Ritchie Blackmore
Gary Moore
Brian May
Joe Satriani
 
Bassist
John Entwistle
Chris Squire
Jack Bruce
Geezer Butler
  
Drummer
John Bonham
Keith Moon
Cozy Powell
Ginger Baker
Ian Paice


 I completely agree with Freddie Mercury making a 'Top 10' for showmanship, but there are 5 or 6 others whom I prefer for their vocals and who weren't bad showmen/showpersons, either. Like JSA said, Greg Lake would certainly make my list of vocalists, along with two others right off the top o' my head - John Lawton + Paul Di'Anno. If I'm looking for that 'rougher-edged' type vocalist, I go with Dan McCafferty over Bon Scott.
 For bassists, I have to have James Jamerson on my list, along with Billy Blough, Mel Schacher, James Dewar, John Deacon and yes, Roger Glover! So take that, Beese! emoticon ( emoticon / emoticon )
 Drummers is a bit tougher for me, as I'm not a huge fan of drumming, though I of course appreciate it's importance + place in musical structure...it's just not a facet I pay a whole lot of close attention to...I'd probably but Benny Benjamin, Lee Kerslake, Carl Palmer, Don Brewer + Bill Bruford ahead of the five that made the BBC's list that I left off.
 At guitar, the only gripe I have with the 5 picks from those lists that I agree with is the order! Two of my all-time favorites who're always #'s 1 + 2 - Ritchie Blackmore + Brian May, are just one slot off where they belong! emoticon
 Now for the big question: why no keyboards? emoticon

'scuse me, please. I did NEVER EVER hear any technical complicated rhythms from Ian, like Bonham did for example on "Four Sticks", "Black Dog", or "Kashmir". Of course his style was very hard, but that wasn't all.



Rubbish. Kashmir couldn't be more straightforward and Black Dog only sounds complicated because the bass and guitar start the riff on a different beat each time. The beat itself stays the same underneath.

What about chunks of Perfect Strangers in 5/4 or the kick-off to Pictures of Home or the disciplines on You Fool No One? Not to mention the grace notes and one handed rolls that litter a lot of Paice's later work, esp Sometimes I Feel Like Screaming. Burn would make Buddy Rich sit up and take notice.

Bonham did a good job in Zepp but Paice is in a different class.

Nobody's mentioned the drum beat of Fireball? I think that is one of the most unique and difficult ones.

BTW, I do think Bonham is an excellent drummer, but I do prefer Paicey.

Bonham is similar to Hendrix in that dying was the best career move he ever made.

Do you find that funny or what? That's a typical sentence of an ignorant and frustrated blockhead,

I think he has a valid point, in that Bonham has achieved a mythical stature that all of the other Zeppelin members have lost (some more than others) by releasing sub-standard post-Zep material.

If you used your brain instead of getting all hysterical, you wouldn't write such teenage nonsense.

No it's not. Please don't go emo on us, or take your sixth-form sensibilities over to a Nirvana board.

I´ve got a couple of friends who are drummers in bands(don´t know why I seem to attract them) and they confirm that Fireball is difficult to play, while they play Kashmire in their sleep.
