A “supergroup” forms when members of several well-known bands get together to form a new entity where (it is assumed) the whole will be even greater than the sum of its already mighty parts. But things don’t always work out for supergroups.
- Does anyone remember Art of Anarchy? It featured Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots and Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal, who has been a member of Guns N’ Roses.
- Dreamcar featured three members of No Doubt and AFI singer Davey Havok.
- SuperHeavy was built around Mick Jagger, Dave Stewart of Eurythmics, and Damien Marley.
- Tinted Windows featured James Iha of the Smashing Pumpkins, Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Bun E. Carlos, ex of Cheap Trick.
- And then there’s Them Crooked Vultures featuring Dave Grohl, Josh Homme, and John Paul Jones. We’re still waiting for a second record from them.
