It's a bird! It's a plane! No... IT'S A SUPERBAND!

Post by Hubilub on Fri Dec 03, 2010 9:21 pm

So I've recently started to listen to the superband known as Them Crooked Vultures.



It features Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones. And it's fucking awesome.

Do you guys know of any other superbands? They're super.

Oh, and for those who don't know, a superband is when famous artists get together to form a band. It is the closest we're ever going to get to having Jimi Hendrix play in a band with Freddie Mercury.

Shrinebuilder are basically a doom supergroup.



They consist of Wino Weinrich (The Obsessed, St Vitus), Scott Kelly (Neurosis), Dale Crover (Melvins, Nirvana), and Al Cisneros (Sleep, Om, and the reason why I play the bass).

They's pretty fine.

Probably the Kurt rewrote their contract in the last days of Nirvana so they make very little money off their sales, so they're probably just playing the bills. In the most awesome way possible.

Still, Dale Crover wouldn't receive money anyway, he never recorded anything with them.

Though Dave Grohl is the leadsinger to an incredibly successful rockband, so I'm not sure if he does this to "pay the bills".

We all know that the Dave Grohl fronting Foo Fighters is a robot.

And a Japanese one at that!

I've never really gotten into Josh Homme as a vocalist. I dunno, his singing just doesn't appeal to me.

I'm quite fond of Rock Star Supernova though.

HOI
I showed you them and you said you didn't like them. >:/

OT:



This is actually a supergroup in reverse. They started as a normal band by their guitarist Mike Amott (ginger fella, formerly of Carcass, now in Arch Enemy) and also feature Per Wiberg (who now plays keyboards for Opeth) and JB Christofferson (not sure if I'm spelling that right. Who sings for Grand Magus).

So they are in fact nothing like a superband?

I see...

What I meant was they are technically a supergroup now, but they weren't when they started. But now due to the fact that all of the members play in high profile metal bands they are.

These guys. I guess you could say Trio of Doom as well but they only got together once.

And some consider The Raconteurs a supergroup.

Temple of the Dog (sort of, it has Chris Cornell, Stone Gossard and Eddie Vedder but the latter wasn't famous at the time)
A Perfect Circle (Tool meets Nine Inch Nails meets Marilyn Manson)
Cream (Du-fucking-uh)
The Plastic Ono Band (some of the world's greatest musicians and Yoko Ono)

And for the famous band with a different famous singer variety there's Velvet Revolver (Guns N' Roses with Scott Weiland), Alter Bridge (Creed with Myles Kennedy) and Audioslave (Rage Against The Machine with Chris Cornell)

The only superbands I can think of off the top of my head are Audioslave, who are Rage Against the Machine with a different singer pretty good, Velvet Revolver, who are Guns and Roses with a different singer alright, Chickenfoot, who have Joe Satriani and are therefore awesome and Hellyeah, who are really good in the studio, but were utter shite live when they supported Avenged Sevenfold and Stone Sour.

Hubilub wrote:snip

Them Crooked Vultures are awesome, but again, like Hellyeah, they weren't that great live. They just had no stage presence, and it wasn't quite what I expected from the great Josh Homme, Dave Grohl and John Paul Jones. On the other hand, their songs were pretty damn fun to listen to, so it wasn't all bad.

I'm loving the love for Mr. Homme in this thread. The world needs more Kyuss/Eagles of Death Metal/Them Crooked Vultures/Queens of the Stone Age/Josh Homme.
