I heard Chuck Klosterman talking about this on Bill Simmons' BS Report podcast last week. It sounded like it could be fun. In the least it would be another pointless exercise on here to help us pass some time.

We will have a draft where we take turns choosing rock stars to fill out our own all-star band. There is no contest once the band is assembled, so this will truly be a pointless endeavor. That said, I think it could still be fun. Who knows, if this works out, maybe next we branch out into making a movie with a fantasy dream cast or something.

If this game really takes off, we could even photoshop together a band photo and come up with names and stuff.

I will take requests to play along over the next couple of days. If we get at least 6 people then I figure we have enough to make it work. If there are more than 16 interested people I'll have to have a lottery or something to see who gets to play.

Once we have our participants set, I'll draw names to set a draft order. We will draft for 5 rounds. The draft will follow a serpentine order. You will choose the following for your band:

1 singer
1 guitarist
1 bassist
1 drummer
1 keyboard/2nd guitarist/whatever else you want

Solo artists are not eligible i/e you may not draft Michael Jackson on vocals or Jimi Hendrix on guitar. Musicians are not allowed to double up on roles. i/e if you choose Paul McCartney for bass or Phil Collins for drums they can not also be used as a singer. These were rules Klosterman mentioned so I am sticking with them.

Yeah, I'm game.

Jimi Hendrix was singer and lead guitarist for The Jimi Hendrix Experience (also Band of Gypsys) so he should be eligible. I'm less inclined to argue Michael Jackson since it ain't gonna bring him back.

I hear that Michael Jackson may have been in a band with four siblings, too.

Doesn't really matter to me. We can make any eligible, I suppose. i was just going off what Klosterman said. I think his reasoning behind keeping Hendrix out was because he is everyone's top choice for guitar. he reasoning on Jackson was that he wasn't really a rock guitarist (which he then kind of refuted by saying Beat It was easily a rock song.)

It seems silly to indulge and silly to pass at the same time.

Sure, I'm in.

Sounds cool, and hopefully goes quicker than the character draft we've been playing for the past 2 years

I'm in

ok, for simplicity, lets just say any musician is eligible for your band. Here is the draft order:
1 Fathead
2 YK,FK
3 Sela
4 Steel Frog
5 A2
6 Drew
7 Philip
8 Dawson
9 Knarf
10 Batman
11 JJ
12 Dawgs

This is the order we'll use for rounds 1,3 & 5. The order will reverse for rounds 2 & 4.

Fathead, you're up

Just like you and me, he puts his pants on one leg at a time but once his pants are on he makes gold records.
