    Substitutions / Replacements

    If you could substitute or replace one musician from any band, who would it be, and from what band?    The band in question would have to have a reasonably long-standing lineup and not one that has been prone to "flavor of the month" type changes.    Could be a / the vocalist, too. 

    Both serious or funny substitutions  are welcome.

    Any "long standing band" would likely be a "great band" and changing one of the members on a whim instead of by necessity ( death usually comes to mind .., think Keith Moon / Kenny Jones). would be tantamount to sacreligious in my book.

    But, because it's yoga, I'll be nice.

    Let's take Ian Hunter out of Mott The Hoople and replace him with Alice Cooper.

    They could rename the band...

    ...yup, you guessed it!....Mott The Cooper.

    ...or Alice Cooper could go to Alice In Chains, and the name stays the same!!!

    Good question, but I think those "super groups" (Asia, Dam Yankees...etc.) are a great example of the mix and match you suggest. Sometimes it works other times it doesn't.......

    Maybe Joan Jett could join Jefferson Airplane and call themselves Jett Airplane

    or Tina Turner joins with Randy Bachman and become Bachman Turner Overdrive

    How about Chuck Berry ( with Halle Berry singing backup) joining Ginger Baker, Jack Bruce and Eric Clapton as 'Berries and Cream?'

    Maybe not one of my more inspired quirky threads.   :)

    How about a change for the Byrds?   I can't come up with anything, but maybe someone else can.  :)    

    OTHERWISE, you're on fire now.   hahhahaha.  NICE WORK.

    Ginger ,Mary Ann and Ginger as the "Honey Bees' could join the Byrds.Then they'd be the "Byrds and the Bees."

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rqp_Si4a10E

    or the Bee Gees joined the Byrds,again "Byrds and the Bees"

    If former comedian Flip Wilson  joined them,they'd be "Flip the Byrds"

    If former group Free joined them,they'd be "Free Byrds"

    yoga, you could almost replace jesseyeric as my best "straightman"...if you were a man.

    This thread was just begging for humor....sorry , but you did suggest it.

    What if Gerry and the Pacemakers merged with Heart???

    80s groups ABC, U2 and  INXS merge: The new group would be ( ready for this?)...AB CINXSU 2.

    What if Martha Davis of the Motels joined Black Flag?...you'd get music for a motel room with no roaches...( GET IT?...roach MOTEL...BLACK FLAG???)

    Heart joining with Joan Jett and Black Sabbath would be Joan Jett and the Black Hearts

    The Doobie Brothers joining with the Rolling Stones would be "Rolling Doobies"

    Bill Cosby,Beverly Sills and Johnny Cash forming a group with Erica Jong would be "Cosby,Sills,Cash and Jong"

    Rolling Stones teaming with Styx would be Styx and Stones

    It also seems like Madonna would fit in with Supertramp.

    Great job with the Byrds.    Very inspired.  !

    How about this:  Replace all the singers in this musical with the Bee Gees and rename it:

    Geesus Christ Super Star   :)     Pretty bad, huh?!

    EDITED:  I could also say BeeGeesus Christ Super Star -- rrrright.   :)

    Re: Substitutions / Replacements

    Rush was a band that came to mind re: replacement, since even fans have readily admittted they have issues with Geddy Lee's voice.  The "fun" aspect of trying to think of a replacement is that it would not be easy to come up with a serious answer.   But the thought of replacing him would be an imaginative effort.   See what I mean ...?

    I was also thinking, after seeing Eddie Vedder in the 12-12-12 concert, singing "Comfortably Numb" which was a knockout ... replace Waters for Vedder.    OKAY, I already know the consequences of saying that ...  :)   

    As for the fun / funny responses, I think we're covered.   They've been pretty cool.

    NO problem at all, and I'm howling at the, you know, "straight - person" reference, especially since JE (unfortunately :(  )   has not bee on the board as often these days.  

    I'm down with it.   So let's make it official.  :) 

    I guess this thread did beg for humor, and truthfully -- I think we can all use some humor on these cold, dark January days, so go for humor and go for broke -- that's what I sa-a-a-y.  :)

    Re: Substitutions / Replacements

    I have already stated this in the past, but the Rolling Stones would have sounded just as good, if not better, with Don Covay as the lead singer. Sure, they wouldn't have had the same image, but image doesn't mean that much to me.

    I have no serious answers ( what else is new?)

    So , we'll continue with more silliness.

    Jimi Hendrix (yes, I know he's dead....but play along...) recruits Mick Ralphs as 2nd guitar, Boz Burrell on bass and Simon Kirke on drums.....The Jimi Hendrix Bad Experience.

    Adam leaves the Ants and replaces Klaus Meine.....Adam and the Scorpions.

    Jeff Beck teams up with Beck and Walter Becker from Steely Dan. The group might be Beck, Beck and Becker. Or Frank Black could team up with Walter and be Black and Becker.

    Robert Plant singing with Hothouse Flowers?...Hothouse Flowers and Plant.

    B.B. , Freddie and Albert King sing with the Jesus and Mary Chain???....The Jesus and Mary Chain featuring the 3 Kings.

    Ted Nugent fronts Guns And Roses......new name 'Guns and Guns and more Guns.'
