Best Hard Rock Supergroups


Recommended Posts

Who's your favourite supergroup*? Damn Yankees, Mr Big, Bad English, other?

*band made up of already successful artists from a variety of other bands.

The ones you mentioned are right up there. 

"Shadow King" comes to mind for me when it comes to a true "Supergroup".

I think there may be another thread along these same lines where we established that the term is very much over used.

All bands are made up of members from former bands.
Not sure I would class Mr Big as a supergroup.

My first thought was Damn Yankees.
Slash did some great stuff.
Also wouldn't class Sammy Hagar's post VH groups as supergroups. Except Chickenfoot who ironically I don't rate nearly as much as the Wabos etc
Sixx AM?

I was gonna mention Slash.

Not sure if it's better than GNR, but it's good shit.

He was certainly the break out member of that group post split up and rightly so.

Would count before Van Halen, H.S.A.S. a supergroup.

Man, seems all we see these days are "supergroups." Gotta make a living, I guess....in no particular order, past or present.

Dead Daisies

Damn Yankees - I saw them open for Bad Company, and they blew them away. Excellent show, Blades and Shaw were totally able to keep up with Uncle Ted.

The End Machine, KXM, Dirty Shirley (pretty much anything George Lynch is involved in)

Anything with Myles Kennedy involved

Velvet Revolver

Smith/Kotzen (not sure a "supergroup") 

Sixx: A.M.

The Circle

The Firm

British Lion

Art of Anarchy

Revolution Saints (probably my favorite)

WET

Sons of Apollo

And in a weird way, Whitesnake has sort of become a "supergroup." :)
