It looks more like a Mad Season rebirth.

Duff's turning into Iggy Pop

If Mike McCready is a lesser member of Pearl Jam then Pete Townsend should enter a high school battle of the bands so he has a chance of being called good.

Mike McCready a lesser member? I think all the members of Pearl Jam are pretty solid. Eddie Veddar's voice may not be your thing, but I think it fits their sound. He wouldn't necessarily be my first pick to front a new band but I think he's great for PJ. If you're going to name a lesser member of the band, it would probably have to be their revolving door of drummers, although now with Matt Cameron, they're pretty good there as well.

Mike McReady is not a "lesser member" of Pearl Jam.  That's just silly.
 
2013-03-02 03:41:00 AM
Pearl Jam has no lesser members. Never been a big fan of Gun & Roses, so I can't speak for them.
 
2013-03-02 04:10:42 AM
I grew up a fan of Pearl Jam and a huge fan of GNR and Alice in Chains but I'm not too excited about this. I was more excited when I misread Mad Season as Mean Season, another good 90's band. I haven't thought of them in a long while. So thanks for that subby.

So I assume this group will consist of Axel Rose and Pearl Jam's hair stylist?

Gee, I wonder what this band is going to sound like.  This is earth shattering news.
 
2013-03-02 08:22:28 AM
Duff is far from a lesser member of gnr. This combination makes sense. He's from Seattle and played multiple instruments in a ton of punk/post punk/rock bands before and after gnr. Duff's a bright guy. He sobered up and went to college. Duff should serve as an inspiration to anyone who has/had d/a issues.

/I'll get off my miniature soap box now.
 
2013-03-02 08:23:25 AM
Sorry, that is not a supergroup.

Herman Li, Brendon Small, Billy Sheehan, Terry Bozzio, and Tony Kakko would be a supergroup.

Duff is no slash, but that does not mean he is not a well above average musician.

Duff plays guitar. Plays pretty well actually.

Um, Walking Papers?  Seriously, article doesn't even mention the band.
 
2013-03-02 09:56:26 AM
The only lesser member of GnR was Steve Adler, the drummer they kicked out for being too messed up on drugs.

/yes, that was a running joke

He said he sucks, which is why he plays bass but that was a long time ago.

A lot of hard rock bands that started in the 70's and 80's have a similar tale. The guy who couldn't play was handed the bass, turns out they sucked equally on both instruments. Maybe that's why so many of those hard rock and hair bands sucked so much.

I lol'd seriously though Axel IS important to GnR, he just isn't all of GnR like he thinks. it isn't real GnR without Axels voice and Slash's guitar work.

as far as this group goes I'll give them a listen. Solid lineup

Well hanging around Slash for years could make lots of people feel like they suck at playing guitar.

Didn't have to even RTFA to know subs has SFB.

I don't see why more Mad Season draws so much negativity here.  I like their album and will still take the player off of random to catch a few tracks when it comes up.  Of course, I liked Alice in Chains and Pearl Jam and Screaming Trees, so blending them seems natural.

IIRC, he joined GNR on bass because they needed a bass player.  So, "Sure, I can play bass."

They're a comedy duo known as Garfunkel and Oates.  The brunette is Raj's current girlfriend on  The Big Bang Theory.

I'm sorry, but you can't have a rock/grunge super group without working Dave Grohl into the lineup somehow.
 
2013-03-02 03:02:48 PM
If by supergroup you mean "has been working in a supermarket" then, yes, they qualify.

He took up bass before he joined GnR but if y'all say he's good on guitar then I believe it. Playing along Slash for 10-or whatever years has to rub off on one.

He started as a guitarist a little over 30 years ago, in the F@rtz, a Seattle band now largely, and probably deservedly, forgotten. What else he's done besides GnR, I  dunno. I haven't been paying attention. 30 years of fiddling with guitars usually ends up with you being able to play them credibly, if not  necessarily quite to the standard of Yngvie Malmsteen, or somebody like that.

Duff wss also in Jane's Addiction for a few weeks a couple years ago.
