Well I was discussing with a friend the bands with the best chemistry. Of course, we weren't there (well maybe you were, but I sure as hell wasn't) when KISS wrote Rock n Roll All Night, or when Cream wrote Sunshine of Your Love, or when Avenged Sevenfold wrote Beast and the Harlot. But from the musical connections we can investigate, or however you'd like to do it, which band (past or present) do you think has/had the best chemistry?

My friend and I came to the conclusion that Pink Floyd had really awesome chemistry, and we were comparing that to The Beatles in the end. Probably plenty of bands we didn't consider as well.

So answer!

the original first line up of the chili peppers

another for Zeppelin, they had too much respect for Bonham to continue after he died.

and you need good chemistry to make 6 minute songs magically triple their length during live shows.

Led Zeppelin...they won't even call themselves anymore after Bonham's tragedy


Exactly. These guys were brothers.

Led Zeppelin actually preformed in the 90's years after bonhams death. They did have excellent chemistry though. Never be the same without bonham.

#14
zeppelin didn't perform in the 90's, it was just page and plant
#15
Mahavishnu Orchestra

the first incarnation

ridiculously tight rhythm over every time sig you've heard of and many you haven't all while Mclaughlin rips out massive fusion solos
#17
you are really wrong about pink floyd, they pretty much hated eachother
#18
Jam bands have to have great chemistry, so I'm going to say King Crimson.
#19
too bad fripp has a reputation for being a prick within KC

but they do do some massively cool sh1t


also do you guys think it's possible to have good chemistry, so to speak, while hating each other?

Rush, Mahavishnu, Bela Fleck.... Like someone said above, lots of jam bands. Qualified ones though, not just the "ok, your solo now" ones.

Flea and John Frusciante have always been really tight, I wouldnt say so for the whole band. Even now, I always get the feeling that Frusciante and Kiedis don't really like each other.

RHCP definately have something special about them, 3 of 4 members survived serious drug addictions and still managed to produce good music after cleaning up.
It would be like somebody saying, "I don't want to use words to talk, I want to just go by feel, I want to rub my penis all over them. I don't want to talk" - John Frusciante's view on people who don't want to learn music theory

wow who ever told you that Jimi wrote Sunshine was on any drug he/she could get his/her hands on. Although it was inspired by Hendrix.
Um I would say Rush's current line up and not the first one. I know that the Experience was one of the worst excluding Mitch. Floyd wasn't all that tight. I think the more people you have in a band the higher tendancy it will break up or have mass fights.

beatles definately, in the early years at least. Watch some interviews and you can see they're just laughing and making jokes off eachother. Zeppelin had good chemistry also.

You're also wrong, Jack Bruce wrote the riff (the first part of the song to be written) a poet named Pete Brown wrote the lyrics in the same night and Clapton wrote the chorus a little later (he wasn't there when Bruce and Brown wrote the start).

I'd say the current line-up of RHCP has the best chemistry. They're f*cking amazing.

Lol at all you people who say G n R and Oasis
Also, the Beatles were very tight and had good "chemistry" when they weren't called the Beatles. After they made it big, if they even got together outside of a studio, the whole world would blow up and try to eat them. Literally.

And for the best chemistry, I'd have to say the Grateful Dead, because they just kept truckin' in onto the 21st century, they're still touring. They were able to just jam forever.

Has to be modern Dream Theater, tightest musicians i've ever heard and they blend so well.

Led Zeppelin were definitely incredibly tight, but I'd say Rush. How can YYZ be so tight? That's impossible to pull off, I swear...

I concur. Towards the end of their career, they all hated each other.

Green Day and U2 come to mind.

Paco de lucia, Al Di Meola and John McLaughlin.

Well, they're not really a band, but hearing them play together and improvising is sheer joy.
I really don't listen that kind of music that much, It's mostly metal, but these guys blow my ****ing mind!

Tragically Hip. And Rush. And B.B. King and his band. I saw them last year, they were great.
