    Who do you think are the best supergroups of all time? And for the record, I'm defining supergroup as a band that includes 2 or more members that had already achieved success as part of another musical act (or solo).

    Off the top of my head, here is a list of supergroups (in no particular order) to choose from:

    Cream (the original supergroup)
    CSN (and sometimes Y)
    Blind Faith
    The Firm
    Temple of the Dog
    Audioslave
    Velvet Revolver
    Bad Company
    Emerson, Lake and Palmer (Powell)
    Anderson, Bruford, Wakeman and Howe
    Asia
    Derek and the Dominos
    Travelling Wilburys
    The Highwaymen
    Damn Yankees


    That's all I got.

    All good bands, but I don't see how any meet my definition of supergroup. :)

    Except maybe the Eagles after Joe Walsh joined.

    Don't qualify. Apart from Keenan, they were all session guys and sound mixers.

    While I havent given a damn about reality tv since the second season of the real world I have to say this show was pretty fun to watch.

    Bach, Ian, NUGENT, biohazard guy and the son of one of the greatest drummers ever? good stuff.


    I am tempted to answer Cream but... I listened to the best of last night and they do have some goofy shit too.

    I say the Highwaymen, Down, Mad season, Danzig (after the misfits) or Megadeth (after Metallica and Cacophony)
