Six Degrees Of Supergroups

22 March 2009

The supergroup concept is back. (Or did it never leave and I just didn't notice?)

Alternative and indie fans with an ironic streak can check out Tinted Windows with members and ex-members of Smashing Pumpkins and Fountains of Wayne. And Cheap Trick. And Hanson.

Alternative and indie haters with no ironic awareness whatsoever can check out Chickenfoot with members and ex-members of Van Halen, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and the Coldplay-suing Joe Satriani.

Hagar has been quoted as saying that Chickenfoot's greatness could rival that of Led ZeppelinReally.  (One would think that with grand aspirations, one would select a name that wasn't Chickenfoot.)
