Wednesday Question: Best Musicians to Have a Drink With?

Name a rockstar you'd have a beer with.

Ultimate Guitar

Chugging down a drink or two with one's favorite rock star is a dream come true for so many fans around the globe. Just think of all the stories you could hear, life lessons, tips and tricks.

And that's exactly what we'll focus on right now. So without further ado, this week's Wednesday Question is:

Who is the best rockstar to have a drink with?

It can be a non-alcoholic beverage if the specified star happens to be struggling with an addiction or two. But the essence remains the same - who's the best star of the rock realm to hang out with?

Same rules as always apply - only one suggestion per comment, vote up the ideas you support and vote down the ones you dislike. We'll sum up your votes by Friday and bring you another traditional UG Top 10. May the coolest dude (or dudette) win!

    Bruce Dickinson from Iron Maiden. He just seems like such a cool guy.
    With the Trooper beer
    It's actually an overall poor beer. Don't get me wrong, the label and concept are phenomenal (it's the only empty bottle I've ever kept), but the actual beer itself, is definitely not worth the price.
    I have to agree that it's not worth it's price. If it was the same price as all other beers though, I wouldn't drink any other beer than trooper.
    I actually think it's a really nice beer. Go try Elbow's "Build a Rocket Boys" beer, also brewed by Robinsons, and then say that Trooper is a poor beer. The concept is the same, i.e the band decides on the taste etc. Trooper is good. Build a Roacket tastes like piss.
    John Bonham Too far?
    YES!! End of thread.
    Had a few with Lemmy at the Rainbow a few years back, he was playing the trivia game at the end of the outside bar. He had every top score.
    Dimebag Darrell
    pantera guys...agree.....i hv heard there was this rule that if one doesn't drink he/she ain't allowed backstage for the after-show party!!!
    Taylor Swift... if you catch my drift. But seriously, Jimmy Page
    To be honest, T Swizzle seems like someone I could get along with. Jimmy Page too though.
    Dave Grohl
    I know you all hate Dave now because because you're sick of him but I really agree. He seems like such a nice, funny guy who has had so many experiences. I think it would be great to hang out with him.
    matteo cubano
    I've always wanted to have a night of hanging out and drinking with Grohl and Corey Taylor at the same time and start jamming classic rock tunes. But since Grohl is nominated here and I can't say both this comment is officially directed to: Corey Taylor.
    Les Claypool.
    they need to do an MRI on his brain cuz i swear hes not one of us. how can anyone be that far out in left feild, play the bass better then anyone in rock history, and sing at the same time. hes an alien
    Going to see them this month! And yes i agree, it's truly incredible that he can play those insane basslines while singing
    James Hetfield
    Keith Richards man
    Dude, Finally...He would be the ultimate to sit down and pound down a few. Imagine the stories he has to tell. Plus, he's a very interesting dude, and funny as hell to hear him
    Zakk Wylde
    YES! THIS! Dude seems to be a trip and a half. It would be awesome, lol. Especially since I heard alcohol saved his life in some manner. Zakk must have amazing stories.
    Dude had blood clots forming in his legs...alcohol thinned his blood so much it caused them from being a problem, or so I heard from That Metal Show.
    Randy Blythe
    Mikael Åkerfeldt and Steven Wilson.
    Get them drunk enough and they might start writing another Storm Corrosion album
    Oh God, yes please. That would be the most awesome experience ever. I'd also add Jonas Renkse in there for the ultimate awesomeness collision.
    Frank Zappa because it would be hilarious or David Gilmour for a more down to earth conversation.
    Keith Moon? I know he died because of it, but it would've been awesome to hang with him
    On the subject of the Who, a friend of mine did a charity event recently with Roger Daltrey and apparently he was the nicest geezer ever so I'd have to say I'd like to have a drink with him. It would be a fairly tame night but I bet he'd be a right laugh.
