Songwriting is important, but most of them are involved in the band somehow.

Sure they're involved in the band. But I won't say someone is the greatest vocalist or guitarist in the history of the world just because they have a good songwriter.

Again, the songwriter is almost always in the band. If they aren't, then that band doesn't really have much creativity.

my point is sometimes the songwriter can be an awful terrible musician, and sometimes you'll have incredible musicians who sound terrible because they can't write songs worth shit.

Anyway, if I had to come up with an all-star band of people I myself enjoy (the word "best" is the most arrogant in the language), it'd probably be something like:

Kurt Cobain/Thurston Moore/Lee Renaldo - Guitar
John Bonham/David Grohl - Drums
Rachel Grimes - Bass
Kurt Cobain/Thurston Moore - Vocals
Cobain/Moore/Renaldo/Kim Gordon - Songwriting

I agree, and they're damn genius to give it to a band that has absolutely no songwriting talent, and mooch money like mad. =P

Err, most of the bands I listen to fit in a conventional format, so I'll just list my ten favorite musicians (in no real order):

Ogre
cEvin Key
Peter Christopherson
Frank Zappa
Edward Ka-Spel
Phil Knight
Syd Barrett
Mark Walk
Beck Hansen
Victor Damiani
Danny Carrey

Some other musicians I respect include: Genesis P-Orridge, John McCrea, Maynard James Keenan, Wendy Carlos, Gary Numan, Thom Yorke, En Esch, Martin Atkins, Julian Hope, Ken Marshall, Paz Lenchantin, Layne Staley, Lou Reed, the guys from Kraftwerk and Neubauten, and anyone from Cake, or the original lineup of APC that I didn't mention.

Guitar: Yngwie Malmsteen, Micheal Angelo, Paul Gilbert
Bass: Victor Wooten (You tell me anyone that can play the nastest thing you've ever heard, mid-way in a backflip)
Drums: Mike Portnoy
Vocals: Steve Harris
Keyboard: Janne Wirman Pimeys
Synth/Programming: Tero Kostermaa



That's only from a technical view, Gibby Haynes can't hit an F sharp in the 6th octave and hold it for thirty seconds, but I'd rather listen to him sing than power-metal singers. It's all a matter of taste, I can't stand a lot of prog arpeggio happy music most of the time.

Personally, the ones that appeal to my tastes most:

Guitar: Dick Dale, Fanatic
Bass: Danny Lilker, Simon Gallup
Vocals: Danzig, GG Allin, Numan, Animal (from Anti Nowhere League)
Drums: Mikkey Dee
ect ect ect, I'm tired

Trumpet: Vince di Fiore, Louie Armstrong
Lead singer: John S. Hall, not because he's a good singer
I don't think I have guitar or bass favorites.

The rest is just background noise.
