The Traveling Wilburys. Five incredible performers, each capable of filling a room. It was such a break for each of them, and each felt the freedom this project offered them. Sadly, when Roy Orbison passed maybe seeing them tour passed as well.
Okay I'm more of a rock and roll kind of guy but I have to admit in the 1980s there was a group called The Power Station, Robert Palmer, Chic drummer Tony Thompson, Duran Duran members John Taylor and Andy Taylor. ..I liked it
In my opinion, I'd go with Coverdale/Page. Consisting of David Coverdale of Deep Purple and of course Whitesnake and Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin.THAT was and still is one hell of a rockin' album. 2 great musicians created one powerful album. Love it! Wish they would've done more. Just good ol' hard rock n' roll!
Paice, Ashton & Lord. That was pretty neat, although I don't know whether Ian and Jon were at Deep Purple during that time or not. The same goes for Coverdale & Page. :)
Gov't Mule, self tittled debut album. For those who don't know Gov't mule started out as a side project to the Allman Brothers. They are now a top band in the Jam band scene.
HSAS - read about this when I was in my teens about Sammy Hagar and Neal Schon putting this band together for a series of gigs. The resultant album Through the Fire was great but the radio show bootleg tape that I tracked down is better as it captures what the band was about. Despite fans asking for a reunion nothing has occurred since those gigs in the mid 80s.
Temple of the dog and Mad Season. Both amazing!! Btw Audioslave wasn't a side project (side project=already have a main band and do sth beside that).
The Barbarians/ The New Barbarians: Keith Richards, Ron Wood, Stanley Clark, Bobby Keys, Ian McLagen, Ziggy Modeliste is the version that I remember as " The New Barbarians.
When is it a Side Project and when does it become a full blown band?Audioslave and Travelling Wilburys stand out - but with 5 albums between them, you could argue that they were the latter - not the former.With that in mind, I would go for Temple of the Dog or Them Crooked Vultures.
Temple of the dog and Mad Season no doubt. Im huge fan of Pearl Jam ,Soundgarden and Alice in Chains do i have to ask for more ?
