QOTD : Superbands…Yay or Nay?

August 10th, 2009 – I was reading about Velvet Revolver today, and apparently they are looking for a singer to replace Scott Weiland. It got me thinking about how few super groups actually succeed. Is it because the expectations are so high? Or is it just because there are so many egos that its difficult to get a good product?

Sometimes I think that record labels think that the star power of a band alone will carry them, but this hasn’t historically been the case. I also wonder if this curse follows other bands that form from the ashes of another. Does the history of a band’s members influence your view of the new band? Are you more likely to listen to a new band if you already know its members?

    The only super band I’ve ever liked were A perfect Circle, Queens of the stone age, and Nine Inch Nails. I dont know if you’d consider them supergroups

    @ Jon : I’m also a fan of those bands, although I’m thinking super as in Chickenfoot, Velvet Revolver, where the members are so famous that even the general public knows who they are. Although maybe Chickenfoot isn’t so much a super group either.

    Carolyn: If I commit to anthoer workshop next summer, I’ll post an announcement. Probably in January.Randy: There’s always anthoer summer. Thanks for your comments.Terry: Thanks for coming on the trip this year. Part of the fun is observing how everyone sees something different in the same location.Cal: Thanks. You might want to sit in one of these places, but be forewarned, you’ll need a lot of sunblock, and protection from the periodic blasts of wind as well!Kim: You are most welcome.Trevor: Thanks for visiting.Eden: Much appreciatedHi Belinda: Thanks for your kind remarks. I don’t think it would take a month…Hi Scott: Thanks for your comments. How is your weather in the east?Thanks Joe!Brenda: I am accused by some of making skies green, but that’s how I see it a lot of the time. Maybe more an issue of ‘moving’ color towards a perception of something. If I let my eye travel any distance from a horizon to anthoer part of the sky, one part will feel ‘greener’ than the other to me, so that’s where I push it. Others may not call it ‘green’, but to me Cerulean Blue can perceived as an expression of green, while Ultramarine moves towards violet. The secondaries are a lot more interesting than the primaries, especially blue-green and violet. They have a fascinating dual nature… warm and cool at the same time. Thanks for your comments.

    It's so great to see all of the women who get featured on your site. I often tell my older friends (and young ones too) about it and they ask if it's because they are older. I then need to explain it's because they have such great style and that it really has nothing to do with their age. I feel like they can find common ground with the beautiful women you highlight.
