So last week saw the release of Them Crooked Vultures’ debut album. TCV is Dave Grohl of Foo Fighters, Josh Homme of many things including Queens of the Stone Age, and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin.
This qualifies TCV as a “supergroup,” i.e. musicians from other bands decide to merge for a period of time and crank out some hopefully awesome music. Some other recent examples are Audioslave, which was Chris Cornell taking Zack de la Rocha’s place in Rage Against the Machine. And A Perfect Circle, with Rev. Maynard from Tool, James Iha from Smashing Pumpkins, and some of the musicians who comprised bits of Nine Inch Nails.
So this got us thinking: what other supergroups would we hope to see formed? Musical dreamcasting, as it were.
Tuffley added some ideas as well:
Some Martina…because I can. And this you need regular sized.
As for me…
What combos would you like to see become actual supergroups? Let us know in the comments.
