I've always thought that Alex Skolnick would have been a better choice over Kirk Hammett.
John Sykes would have made a good partner for Ozzy.
Jeff Beck might have fit in with either The Stones or The Who.
It would have been interesting for Chris Cornell to sing w/Alice in Chains.

Anyone else got ideas?

Dude, you high?

Chris Cornell and AiC might work though.

George Lynch auditioned to be in Ozzy's band (more than once, I believe)



I know he did when Jake got the job. If he thought Don Dokken was an asshole, imagine what playing for Ozzy would have been like.

Tiny Tim in Queen
Randy Rhoads in Cheap Trick (my odd fantasy)
Michael Angelo Batio in Dragonforce
and
Buckethead in Ozzy
EDIT: And Phil Lynott playing bass in The Jimi Hendrix Experience.

John Frusciante in Frank Zappa's band if he would've actually went to the audition.

With Oly Sykes.

OT I've always thought that Limp Bizkit with Corey Taylor instead of Fred Durst would have been interesting.

Sorry, just not sure how you think Jeff Beck would work with the Rolling Stones or the Who. Much as I love Jeff and the Stones (not so big a Who fan though can't deny their talent), Jeff Beck is just way too different from them, his guitar style just would not work with Jagger's voice in the slightest, and he hasn't the stage presence to replace Pete Townsend. His style is far too melodic, both Keith Richards and what I know of Pete Townsend are far more focused on rhythm first, and that complements Mick Jagger's and Roger Daltrey's vocals, whereas Jeff Beck's style would get in the way of them.

EDIT: After replying I remembered before going solo, Jeff Beck was in the Yardbirds, and after watching maybe he would have fit in the Stones or Who. Especially the Who with how he treated the guitar and amp.

Taylor Swift in Opeth.


I love Swift's guitar work.


She'd be so much better on vocals too.

I wonder what it'd be like if Radiohead and Pearl Jam swapped their lead singers

The thing is, I could imagine Eddie Vedder working with some of Radiohead's songs

I didn't mean that Jeff would replace Pete, he'd just be the lead player. If I remember correctly, Beck was actually considered before either Mick Taylor or Ron Wood. I think eventually, Beck would have gotten bored with the Stones, but it might have been a cool album or two.
