Basically as the title says, who do you think is the modern day equivalent of any classic/legendary band in any genre. It could be based on sound, attitude, influence that you think the will have, or anything else that makes them similar to any classic band.

    Travis Barker is the new Tommy Lee. Dave Grohl is the new Paul McCartney.

    Does anybody have any reasons as to why they think this?

    Mine is kinda self explanatory if you are familiar with his projects and I understand Julio's as well (especially the Grohl one ;))

    Travis Barker is a very mediocre drummer but is the main draw to his respective band (like Motley Crue). And Dave Grohl is a wonderful muti-instrumentalist, like Sir Paul.

    Okay I will explain mine :D

    Alan Parsons created several concept albums and incorporated several musicians into his albums

    Arjen Anthony has created several side projects based on a concept (Star One, Stream Of Passion, Ambeon, Aryeon, and Guilt Machine) and his main project Ayreon is a concept with several other concept albums

    fall out boy is a band with minor talent that creates very catchy songs and are more about their image than anything.

    This is my reasoning. Plus they're both excellent singer-songwriters that dabbled all over the place in their careers but still have a strong rooting in folk.

    While Fall Out Boy's singer and bassist are terrible, their guitarist and drummer are actually pretty good.

    Muse is the new Pink Floyd.

    They're carrying the banner of art rock, prog rock and space rock to new heights, and doing it on the strength of some of the best goddam guitars, drums and vocals I've heard in decades.

    What's baffling to me is that Muse isn't more popular in the US. They're huge in the UK and Europe, but in the US, the only people who've heard of them come from RB & GH fans and the most well-versed alt-rock fans.

    I wish to god Muse would unleash a hellacious American tour. I'd go to every single show.

    I would slightly disagree with that. I agree with the comparison, though I usually say Joey Jordison is the new T-Bone. Tommy is/was a very good drummer , well above average but didn't get much respect back in the day due to the band he was in much the same as Travis and Joey. Wasn't until Tommy did some work with Stu Hamm and Hamm mentioned in several interviews just how good Lee really was that people took another look.

    Good comaprison though.

    Muse is modern day Radiohead. Artsy, experimental, and Matt Bellamy is Thom Yorke's clone.

    Coheed and Cambria is modern day Rush in too many ways to explain.

    Yeah, Fall Out Boy's lyrics are pretty bad, but the singer's OK.


    Also, Panic! at the Disco is the new Led Zeppelin. I don't think I have to spell out my reasons for you, you're all smart people.

    Don't see how Coheed is that unique. It's just a mixture of 3, Rush and Iron Maiden.

    I don't know if I meant terrible as much as annoying. I mean, he's not a bad singer, I just don't like his tone at all.

    I guess that makes sense, but he sounds above their average studio recordings when he sings songs in his soul background via http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OSG4C1Qctw
