From Velvet Revolver to Audioslave to The Raconteurs to Them Crooked Vultures, some of the greatest Rock and Roll songs to be released in the last decade have been courtesy of the “supergroup”.
Now, yet another combination of some of music’s most talented artists are coming together, and we have a feeling the results are going to rock!
Billboard reports that Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready, former GNR bassist Duff McKagan and former Screaming Trees drummer Barrett Martin are joining forces for a currently unnamed project, which may be reminiscent of a supergroup of the past.
As many remember, McCready and Martin were both part of the 90s band Mad Season, which also featured the late Alice in Chains singer Layne Staley and bassist John Baker Saunders, who passed away in 1999. The surviving Mad Season members recently announced plans to re-release an expanded version of their 1995 effort Above, and while going through the band’s old unreleased demos, the duo, plus McKagan, became inspired.
"Duff and Barrett and I got together. We wrote some new stuff and we took some of those old Mad Season demos from that [unreleased] second 'Disinformation' record, so we are trying to find something to do with those," McCready told Billboard.
Contributing further to the past connections of the project’s members, Martin and McKagan are also two-thirds of a band called Walking Papers that put out a self-titled album last year; two tracks of which McCready played on.
Despite the relatively new formation of this trio, which is currently looking for a frontman, it certainly seems as though the members are more than well-versed in playing together, which could mean they’ll hit the ground running.
And with McCready offering up his own label, Hockeytalkter Records, to release the group’s songs, a debut album could come sooner than fans expect.
