Media Experts Who Appreciate Supergroups

Just got out of a fun meeting with Sam Whitmore from Media Survey. Sam was nice enough, as we are planning a future series of events, to bring up the example of supergroups. As he defined it, people from different perspectives (musical) come together and are able to create something cool.

Crosby, Stills & Nash










Velvet Revolver

Damn Yankees

Asia







Blind Faith






Powerstation


Bad English

'







Then again, when looking at the above list, sometimes these collaborations stink but we are still going through with our events.

P.S. Thanks for the help Adam!

I've always wanted to start a supergroup called "GlaxcoSmithKline and Young"

Dear Queen,
All valid points (especially the stuff we collaborated on, that was fun). However, why has punk rock been sorely under-represented when it comes to supergroups?

My only amazing addition to the genre - The Knitters:

Any others I'm forgetting?

P.S. i.v. is correct and I'm no prude.

Let's not forget another early 70's "Supergroup"-- Bad Company.

When you put together Free, Mott the Hoople, and King Crimson (!), that's that you get-- apparently.

My good friend at the WMBR Thursday Late Riser's Club (http://wmbr.mit.edu/?p=sched-mul#lrc) dropped off some punk family supergroups:

As far as supergroups go, there's Audioslave for another rock band. What about the Traveling Wilbury's (or however you spell it?). That Bad Company suggestion was a good one.

For punk, Dagnasty was Dave Smalley from DYS and Brian Baker from Minor Threat (and maybe another MT guy). Then All was Smalley and Descendents guys. Fugazi is Ian with Guy from Rites of Spring (are we pushing the definition of Supergroup?). I'll let you know if I think of more, I'm drawing a blank now.
