<"FORMAT/RULES:

1. In round 1 both debaters shall present their hypothetical band line-up.

2. All band members must be referenced by at least a Wikipedia source.

3. All band members will be generally recognised as dead. Conspiracy speculation will not be given credit, Tupac and Elvis are dead, Paul McCartney is not.

4. Bands must contain exactly four members and no more.

5. The band must include a drummer, a bass player, a vocalist and one other instrument. Musicians can also be singers and multi instrumentalists are allowed as long as these roles are permanently filled.

6. We will debate drummer vs. drummer, singer vs. singer etc. as well as discussing the group as a whole.

7. Con may choose to start debating in round 1 or wait for me to begin in round 2.

8. We will be considering the general talents, technical abilities, creativity, charisma, popularity, body of work, attractiveness and just about any other factor my opponent wishes (rights reserved) in discussing the merits of our bands and the individuals that comprise them.

9. Obviously in a debate like this, a lot of our points will be based on opinion but we should attempt to back up our opinions with reliable sources that reaffirm them.">

Copy and pasted from: http://www.debate.org... -- it was obviously the idea of feverish, so yeah..

Mine:

Drums: Keith Moon -- http://en.wikipedia.org...
Bass: John Entwistle -- http://en.wikipedia.org...
Guitar: Frank Zappa -- http://en.wikipedia.org...
Vocals: Jim Morrison -- http://en.wikipedia.org...

So, uh, yeah....

Con

I thank my opponent for this debate. The following shall be my line-up:

Vocals -- Jim Morrison : http://en.wikipedia.org...

Guitar -- Frank Zappa : http://en.wikipedia.org...

Bass -- John Entwhistle : http://en.wikipedia.org...

Drums -- Keith Moon : http://en.wikipedia.org...

My opponent must now affirm, as PRO, his line up is better than mine.

Pro

I simply have no interest in such a douchily distorted argument. It's incredibly far away from the point of why I bothered starting this. So yeah...no.
I-am-a-panda

Con

My opponent has not affirmed his side is in anyway better than mine. I contend that since they are the same person, they are equal. Ergo, the resolution is negated.

<"I mean individual vs. individual in addition to band as a collective whole.">

That's what I was going for.

* I mean individual vs. individual in addition to band as a collective whole. I think that would be interesting :)

Regardless, I'll take this if we can do band vs. band. Like what 4 musicians together would have a better band as a collective whole. Is Pro down for that? Of course I'll do individual vs. individual though.

Yeah Pro has a great line-up, for me its not so much Entwhistle himself but the whole rhythm section argument that smashes it.

Pro's gonna win this debate. Not only do I think a lot of people here don't even know who John Entwistle is, but I think some will Google "best dead bassist," see John's name and then just award the points to Pro without even knowing the kind of music these people do let alone consider who Con puts down. The same applies to Keith Moon. The only real argument on this one comes with guitar and the vox may spark some creativity.
