Guitar and Drums

30 posts in this topic

Hey guys, 

If Richard Fortus and Frank Ferrer suddenly disappeared and NO past member of Guns N' Roses was available who would you like to see as rhythm guitarist and drummer? 

So remember, no Izzy, Robin, Josh etc

I'd go Jonny Depp and Dave Grohl TBH. I think that would be an unreal band. Dave's drums are massive and Jonny plays in that great understated way Iz and Gilby did plus his stuff with Oasis was great back in the day.

I know the rhythm parts to most of their songs, definitely know about 95% of their setlist, so I'd like to see myself as the rhythm guitarist ;)

Drums would have to be Brent Fitz, excellent drum beater

John 5 and Mike Portnoy.

or, Ritchie Kotzen and Jason Bonham.

-edit- way more talented than the band itself, impossible.

John Dolmayan on drums. For new material I'd like to see his heavy drumming on it.

 

Daron Malakian just to make Slash write music in different tunings other than Eb and Drop D

Dave Abbruzzese on drums, and either Rogers Stevens or Christopher Thorn (from Blind Melon)

I think that these two could honor the old school GNR style fairly well

Brent Fitz on drums for sure.. He would instantly elevate this thing.

Have to think about the guitar thing.. Someone Slash has played with before and had chemistry with... Bobby Schneck? I though he did great with Slash' solo band.. he did a good job filling in for Brad Whitford in Aerosmith.. Wasn't he is Slash's Blues Ball as well?

I oddly agree with this. From what i've seen of Johnny's guitar playing, it's rhythm first. It would be a whole different animal as opposed to Fortus. Just like Izzy or Gilby, he won't a guy who can do crazy solos, but add a steady rhythm to Slash's lead. The question would be about that he is a big actor. If Johnny did join Guns, media might crap all over it saying "Johnny Depp failing film career!" or something against Guns themselves as "GN'R recruits famous actor" and could put the band in even more of a WTF state. Otherwise, i could see Johnny fitting in well in a rhythm role, he has played with and does know Duff. For drums? i'd be totally on board with Brent Fitz like a lot of you are saying.

Brent Fitz.  I too would like to play rhythm.  Given its GnR I don't think we all need to compete for that spot.  I vote for the rhythm spot to be filled by everyone on the forum who wants to.  We'll work out a rotation and arrangements that will hope to keep towel waving to a minimum.
