    besides the fact that zakk wylde is a better lead player than dime and that phil is a no talent pussy that should have nothing to do with the music industry.......good choices! :bigthumb:

    :nono: Phil is the fuckin' man dude, I don't care about all the bullshit that is goin' on between him and Pantera, it sucks they aren't together but fuck it. Phil can sing in any style and completely kick ass :bigthumb: , it's good that he's willing to bring back the old school metal of the mid 80's.

  19. they call it Led zepplin
     
  20. Drums - Danny Carey (Tool)
    Bass - Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck & The Flecktones)
    Guitar - Buckethead
    Vocals - Maynard James Keenan (Tool)

    It would be crazy to hear Wooten play with these guys, but hands down, he is the best bassist out there.

    jaco pastorius is the best bassist that has ever lived.
     
  22. Ok granted he may be the best bassist that ever lived but he died in '87. I said Victor Wooten is the best bassist out there right now. Meaning living bassist. Plus I think i'd like to change the drummer from Danny Carey to Akira Jimbo.

    If anyone wants to see some absolutely amazing drumming, check out an Akira Jimbo video. The pretty much invented a whole system of drumming there the drum heads and rims are connected electronically to different sounds. So every time he hits a drum, the sound of the drum along with another sound is produced. Its pretty damn cool seeing a drummer perform a whole composition. I strongly recommend checking this guy out.
