    Heh.

    I looked up a few supergroups, and there's a european one with a great name:

    Super*hit 666


    Sorry, but I found that hilarious.

    [QUOTE]Hmmm, judging by the length of some of those screams I'd say she has the rare ability to breath through her ears.  I suppose that could come in handy in some situations, no wonder Lennon loved her. That said, I've heard worse.  Donna Godchaux could give her a run for the money.

    Believe it or not she was one of the background singers on Suspicious Minds by Elvis. That might make her the only member of the Dead that was on a number one hit.  How ironic.  Maybe "Teach your Children" was a number one, that has Jerry on it playing pedal steel.

    You know, I use to always think of a super group as a group that was loaded with talent or hughly successful like the Beatles or Stones though I don't disagree that it also means a group put together by accomplished and previously successful musicians.  The problem with those type of bands though is they usually don't live up to the hype.

    And yes, that Yoko "singing" was damn awful on that Dirty Mac thing.  lol
    I always thought a picture of that would make a cool poster.

    I think maybe you and I are the only posters who have ever referred to the Lords of the New Church.

    I even have the Stiv Bators solo LP , which was only available as an import...great version of Electric Prunes, "I Had Too Much To Dream Last Night."

    Pardon me, guys, but I believe I beat you both to it re: ph's reference to The Transplants earlier in this thread.

    Nice try, though.   ;)

    Then there are the Superconcerts.  I read on this site that Journey, Foreigner and Night Ranger are touring together.  Just imagine the whole gang of them on stage for a few songs.

    Re: Supergroups

    Actually Greg, Bad Company was formed by members of Free, Mott the Hoople and King Crimson. Making them very much a supergroup of the highest magnitude.

    Pink Floyd really doesn't fit , because the classic lineup of Gilmour, Wright, Mason and Waters never played in groups who were previously established and internationally known. And I also don't consider Yes as a supergroup,although they are perhaps one of the best prog rock groups ever,the legendary reputation of the players begins with Yes not before the band formed.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Supergroups : I did read your post.  Spent a couple of minutes chewing on it  in fact, because it was as clear as mud.   At least half of it consists of bands of unknowns, before they got together, which hardly meets the normal definition of super group. And if you think Jones soloed away then I have no idea why the Stones don't do it for you.  But again, it would only work with your unconventional notion of supergroup.
    Posted by SlimPickensIII[/QUOTE]Its really fun to listen to a composite group of big name heavy hitters.  Not only to listen to their mastery but also watch for what they can creatively produce in the future.  But what about the composite groups of great talented musicians who had top 40 hits but are lesser well known.  The group:The Legends of Do Wopp are one such group.  Oldie and Do Wopp fans across the U.S. and England know they are, presently, one of the greatest vocal groups on the face of this Earth. However, back in the 50's and 60's their groups only had medium and minor national hits.

    Re: Supergroups

    Up north of the border you have your Canadian super groups, Broken Social Scene and the New Pornographers.

    Which brings up one of those eternal questions: Who do you like better, Leslie Feist or Neko Case?
