I'm penning a feature on rock collaborations, supergroups, projects etc. The criteria for entry is: involved artists must have been members of established acts prior to forming the project, it can't be named after one of the band members, and only one entry per act.

 

As with any such feature, my inclusions are going to based on what I personally rate, and while I can see an argument for certain acts, if I'm not personally a fan then they'll not make it - no surprise I guess!

 

So far I have:

 

- Coverdale•Page

 

- The Winery Dogs (debut)

 

- KXM (debut - but I'll choose for sure upon hearing album #2)

 

- W.E.T. (Rise Up)

 

- Chickenfoot (debut)

 

- Revolution Saints

 

I'm looking for another three, plus a stinker (Contraband?).

 

Suggestions please - obscure choices welcome (as long as it's had a proper release).

Some great replies so far, thank you.

 

I've just been thinking about Flesh & Blood actually. I'm thinking about including the 2013 reissue of War & Peace's 'The Flesh & Blood Sessions' - I guess we can consider it a project?

No one mentioned Bad English?

 

Just an observation, and to each their own... is it just me, or do 90% of these projects suck balls? In general I've never really been a big fan of these projects, and perhaps this thread suggests why.

 

I love Bad English, Shadow King, Westworld, WET & The Storm, and The Revolution Saints album was good too. But aside from that... the rest of them? Just, yuck.

 

Oh, and I did like Contraband too. Not loved it, but it was a cool album.

Surely Temple of the Dog wasn't a supergroup as none of the members had broken through at that time?

How far do you want to go back and how wide?

Cream , Humble Pie and many more of that period.

 

Then you can move on to Powerstation and The Firm.

 

GTR. Mike and the Mechanics?

 

Mr Big. Badlands. Slash's Snakepit.

Good call on Mr Big. Curious call on Slash's Snakepit. I didn't realise anyone else in that band was anyone.

Missing one of the best supergroups ever - House of Lords!

 

If you add artists who hire help you could go on forever eg.

David Lee Roth - Vai etc.

Van Halen

Whitesnake - Sykes, Vandenberg, Vai and so on.

Vince Neil - Steve Stevens

Jeez, HOL is a bit of a stretch isn't it? Giuffria was probably the "biggest" name, but even he you'd hardly consider a celebrity before that band was formed (or after?)

the more recent ones are generally better

 

Defiants last year and coming up we have Tokyo Motor Fist which will be cool............ammunition is also a supergroup in a way.

 

Although, I would say that the Allen/Lande and Damn Yankee debuts are very good.

Oh yeah, missed Allen/Lande - they are generally quite good albums. Damn Yankees had four good songs on two albums, imo. Not great odds. ;)

2nd album is shite imo but at least half of the debut is excellent

All you need is their Best Of, and even that gets a bunch of skipped tracks.

How about Ayreon? Although the lynchpin is one guy, the albums have featured some pretty stellar* talent?

 

*Geoff will probably disagree ...

    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)  
    • Literally just added this one to the main site: https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=433&CDName=30 Coming In Hot&Letter=A  
    • Another greatest hits album! And even worse, live greatest hits: JACKYL : 30 Coming In Hot +3 New Tracks (2022) BY BANNED WEBSITE · PUBLISHED AUGUST 13, 2022   When many classic hard rock-related acts from their generation succumbed to trends, JACKYL has been strong & healthy for more than 3 decades. Now 2022 JACKYL are celebrating the 30th anniversary of their platinum debut album with the release of a new best-of collection titled ”30 Coming In Hot”. There has been a ‘best of’ from the band some years ago but this one is different: ”30 Coming In Hot” includes their best songs this time performed live, where they truly showcase their power, plus 3 brand new studio tracks. JACKYL earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation “The Hardest Working Band in Rock ‘N’ Roll” for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Yeah, JACKYL born to play live, and ”30 Coming In Hot” is really ‘hot’ indeed. Very well recorded, mixed & produced, the set is very, very good and entertaining, and you have 3 new songs to enjoy as well. Highly Recommended   01 – Another Round (New Studio Track) 02 – Get All Up in It (New Studio Track) 03 – Bad Decision (New Studio Track) 04 – Blastoff (Live) 05 – My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine’s Ass (Live) 06 – Encore (Live) 07 – Screwdriver (Live) 08 – Down On Me (Live) 09 – Push Comes to Shove (Live) 10 – Just Because I’m Drunk (Don’t Mean You’re Right) (Live) 11 – Secret of the Bottle (Live) 12 – I Stand Alone (Live) 13 – When Will it Rain (Live) 14 – Dirty Little Mind (Live) 15 – Redneck Punk (Live) 16 – Cut the Crap (Live) 17 – The Lumberjack (Live) Jesse James Dupree – Vocals, Guitar Jeff Worley – Guitar Chris Worley – Drums, Percussion Roman Glick – Bass   BUY www.amazon.com/Jackyl-30-Coming-Hot/dp/B0B5N9T45Y
    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
