Encyclopedia > Supergroup (bands)

In the late 1960s, the term supergroup was coined to describe music groups comprising members who had already achieved fame or respect in other groups or as individual artists. The term took its name from the 1968 album Super Session with Al Kooper, Mike Bloomfield, and Stephen Stills. The coalition of Crosby, Stills and Nash (later Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young) is another early example. Led Zeppelin can also be termed as an early supergroup, as it was originally meant to act as a replacement for The Yardbirds, and the members were chosen by Jimmy Page (already a much sought after guitarist) by virtue of their already impressive catalogue of work (except for Robert Plant, who was chosen because of his very distinct voice). The 1960s decade refers to the years from 1960 to 1969, inclusive. ... 1968 (MCMLXVIII) was a leap year starting on Monday (the link is to a full 1968 calendar). ... Mike Bloomfield (left) and Al Kooper (right) album cover Al Kooper (born February 5, 1944, Brooklyn, New York) is an American songwriter,producer, and musician, probably best known for organizing the group Blood, Sweat & Tears. ... Mike Bloomfield album cover Mike Bloomfield (July 28, 1943 – February 15, 1981) was an American musician, guitarist and composer. ... Stephen Stills album cover Stephen Arthur Stills is an American guitarist and singer/songwriter best known for his work with the Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. ... Crosby, Stills, & Nash (at times known as Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young) is a pioneering folk rock/rock supergroup that formed out of the remnants of three 1960s bands: Buffalo Springfield, the Byrds, and the Hollies. ... Led Zeppelin was a British rock band, formed in 1968, and consisting of Jimmy Page ( acoustic guitar, electric guitar), Robert Plant (lead vocals, harmonica), John Bonham (drums, percussion), and John Paul Jones (bass guitar, keyboards, mandolin). ...


With the success of Cream (only two of the band's three members had previously achieved significant fame), the term also came to include groups that sold huge numbers of albums and headlined massive concerts, regardless of the previous fame of the individual members. However, the term as correctly applied refers to the architecture, not the achievements, of the group. By any standards, it is not a rigidly defined category and has become, more than anything, a marketing term. Cream (also The Cream) was a seminal 1960s British rock band which featured guitarist Eric Clapton, bassist Jack Bruce, and drummer Ginger Baker. ...


Supergroups tend to be short-lived (often lasting only for an album or two), perhaps because of the natural conflict of egos between established stars. Also, some supergroups were formed as side-projects that were never intended to be permanent. eGO is a company that builds electric motor scooters which are becoming popular for urban transportation and vacation use. ... In popular music, a side-project is a project undertaken by one (or several) person already known for their involvement in another band. ...

It definitely has to be that Supergroup concept where you take musicians that have made it on their own – but when join together into a Supergroup – magic can happen – or disaster – either way we’re there to catch it on film.
Supergroup (bands) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2559 words)
With the success of Cream (only two of the band's three members had previously achieved significant fame), the term also came to include groups that sold huge numbers of albums and headlined massive concerts, regardless of the previous fame of the individual members.
Supergroups tend to be short-lived (often lasting only for an album or two), perhaps because of the natural conflict of egos between established stars.
Bruderschaft - European futurepop supergroup consisting of DJ Rexx Arkana, Ronan Harris of VNV Nation, Sebastian Komor of Icon of Coil, Stephan Groth of Apoptygma Berzerk and Joakim Montelius of Covenant.
