Fantasy Band: Sen Dog, Cypress Hill
'I don't think there has been a more important collaboration to this day since Run-DMC and Aerosmith doing "Walk This Way"'
Lead singer: Kurt Cobain
He was strange and unique, and his lyrics didn't always make sense at first but the more I listened to them, the more I would vibe with what he was doing and what he was trying to say. I like lyrics that you have to investigate and study before you understand them all. You need to get into this guy's mind to find out what he's all about and I like that challenge.
Guitar: Tom Morello
Tom's work with Rage Against the Machine and Audioslave has really influenced today's music scene. The way he does his thing goes beyond metal; it's genre crossing. The fact that he's appreciated by all kinds of different genres is pretty special.
DJ: Jam Master Jay
When we were youngsters I immediately gravitated towards his work because here were a bunch of records I'd heard before but no one was breaking them down with scratches and slices like Jam Master Jay was. I don't think there has been a more important collaboration to this day, hip-hop wise or rock'n'roll wise, since Run-DMC and Aerosmith doing "Walk This Way". They gave birth to a whole other sub-genre.
Bass: John Paul Jones
I have to pick at least one Led Zeppelin dude. I've been fortunate enough to see him play live with Them Crooked Vultures and found myself being very inspired by how he plays. He was a very key part of what Zeppelin was.
Drummer: John Bonham
OK, I'm picking two members of Zeppelin but I have to. He was the funkiest, most versatile, aggressive, hardcore drummer. Talent-wise, he was the best.
Cypress Hill have collaborated with Rusko for their new EP, 'Cypress X Rusko', released on 13 August.
