Supergroups, collaborations & projects?

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 ...

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
