5 Rock Supergroups We Wish Were a Reality
A Perfect Circle. Velvet Revolver. Temple of the Dog. Audioslave. The list of incredible supergroups can go on a while, but have you ever sat and wished two bands that never played together, actually did (or would)? Sure, the saying goes, "You can wish in one hand and _____ in the other and see which one fills up fastest," but at least it's a fun game to play. We put together a list of five supergroups we wish actually existed -- either past or present -- but would really only happen in our own fantasy world.
It was never much of a secret that Kurt Cobain never thought too much of Eddie Vedder or Pearl Jam, calling them sellouts among other things. The respect was fulfilled later, but it was always obvious you would never catch these two bands on the same stage. But, that doesn't change the fact this is a wishful-thinking situation, and you couldn't ask for a better supergroup from the early 1990s than Pearl Jam and Nirvana.
Two polarizing approaches to music, but when you add the guitar and vocal skills of Jimi and Prince together, you know something amazing would come out. Sometimes it takes two very different people together to create something absolutely amazing, and I think this would be a perfect example.
If you put aside the obvious songs everyone knows -- the Free Bird, Born on the Bayou, etc., take these two bands and seriously give a thought to the idea of these two. Excellent vocalists, great guitars and two of the best in their prime. Take CCR's heavier feel with Skynyrd's story-telling, mold it all together and ... awesome.
Two of my personal favorite bands of all-time ... all rolled into one. Throw in some kick-ass LSD and you would likely have some of the best music to ever come out of the planet earth.
Because ... well, why the hell not? Ian Anderson and Billy Gibbons on the same stage, that's all I have to say about that.
