80's vs 90's

You're right Rudess is definitely 90's.
There's not enough bands that are strictly grundge - maybe we should call it 80's hard rock/metal vs 90's hard rock/grunge (do we even need keyboards?) I'm still thinking TV show here, so I don't know if Tool is well-known enough for that. I know you don't like Hetfield - but Metallica does epitomize 80's metal.

Eddie Van Halen - lead guitar
Angus Young - guitar
Ozzy Osbourne - vocals
Neil Peart - drums
Steve Harris - bass
James Hetfield - guitar/vocals
vs.
Eddie Vedder - vocals/guitar
Billy Corgan - vocals/guitar
Dave Grohl - drums
Tom Morello - guitar
Flea - bass
Chris Cornell - vocals

Rudess

All your selections seem pretty good, and i can't find too many improvements. But Rudess was a 90's keyboard player. In that decade he played with Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment and Dixie Dregs to my knowledge, but he never did anything noticable in the 80's. This creates a problem if you are to take this comment as seriously as i would have liked.

Hmm...

If we're going to include RATM in 90's grunge, then why not the insanels talented Tool? Their first 2 albums had subtle references to grunge after all.

80's Metal vs 90's grundge

We have a choice - either bands that were only popular in the 80's (Poison, Motley Crue, etc) or bands that were popular in the 80's and other decades as well. It would be international - my personal picks:
Metal Supergroup:
Eddie Van Halen - lead guitar
Angus Young - guitar
Ozzy Osbourne - vocals
Neil Peart - drums
Jordan Rudess - keys
Steve Harris - bass

90's Grunge:
Eddie Vedder - vocals/guitar
Billy Corgan - vocals/guitar
Dave Grohl - drums
Tom Morello - guitar
I'll have to think about the bass and keys a little more.

Metal vs Grunge

It's not too bad in my opinion, i am a fairly stong believer that grunge was the start of metal's slow death (it has not yet recoverd, "St. Anger" anyone?) and it is an interesting concept.

Would we be talking about 80's metal bands from ALL countries and 90's grunge groups from all countries? And are there really enough well-known grunge groups to go against metal in the 80's? My grunge knowledge is not too good...

Heavy Metal supergroup

We (Garrett Jennings) and I get a lot of emails from people to add new artists into the list of possible Supergroup players. The main idea is to get a TV show out of this. One suggestion was: rather than have a USA Metal Supergroup vs a UK Metal Supergroup - we have an 80's Metal Supergroup vs a 90's Grunge Supergroup - since mucic experts always talk about how Grunge killed Metal, but Metal fans still say that Metal was never killed and is stronger than ever.
Rogo, I appreciate all your comments. What do you think of the Metal vs Grunge supergroup battle?

About rate-it-all

The sites options for best UK/USA musician has few real metal players; getting people not associated with this site to vote for a load of rock musicians won't get us any metal or hard rock superbands. I suggest going with our old idea, as i WAS working.

UK

Quite obviously me and my mates have created much better rock and roll than in the States. Except for Bob Dylan, of course. Please put in your nomination for Pete (Townshend) to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a solo artist. MY new mate Garrett has started this cause and I believe that anyone who likes music and actually listens to the man has no argument. Regards, Roger Daltrey

Heavy Metal Supergroup Battle

I'm trying to get people to go to:
http://www.rateitall.com/s-wl-73-musicians.aspx
to vote for their favorite Supergroup members. Once we get enough votes, we can make some final determinations about who should be in the Heavy Metal Battle of North America vs The Rest of the World.

Vocalist suggestion

I'm sure we can think of a better North American metal vocalist then Hetfield, he has sucked for some time now IMO. Why not Maynard James Keenan from Tool? He fits into all the categories, as well as being a better vocalist then Hetfield ever was or is..

North America vs Rest of the World

Wait a minute...the Beatles aren't hard rock! Christ i'm losing it...So forget the McCarteny thing. Let's stick with Geezer as it's really hard to think of a hard rock/metal bassist which IS NOT FROM NORTH AMERICA.

North America vs Rest of the World

John Bonham, Bill Bruford or Ian Paice for Rest of the world drummers maybe? But that raises the question; are Led Zep, King Crimson or Deep Purple really metal? which i say NO to unfortunately. Real metal drummers in this category are really difficult to choose...

As for non-north-american bass players, i'd volunteer Geezer Butler of Sabbath, or possibly even Paul McCarteny. I don't exactly love the Beatles, but he can play pretty well. :0
