When I think of the term SUPERGROUP, I think of EC. cool He was in several (Bluesbreakers, BonnienDelaney variations, DnD, the Plastic Ono Band, etc) and probably the most successful of all, Cream.

This is the Dirty Mac...a one off thing that was for the Rolling Stones Rock and Roll Circus done on Dec 11-12, 1968. They were killer that night too.

L-R is EC (lead), John Lennon (rhythm), Keith Richard(s) (bass), and Mitch Mitchell (drums)

Cream: EC (lead...from The Yardbirds and The Blues Breakers) and Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce of Graham Bond Organisation and The BluesBreakers

Then there was Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young

Speaking of EC, I really like Blind Faith too.

Someone had already posted Blind Faith, but I may put in some more pics. cool cool

Yes BF was probably my fav EC period. It's a real "one that got away" thing. lol Stevie Winwood was in fine voice and Ginger's drums were very refined yet powerful. It's a shame they did only one album because it would have been great seeing where they would go w/ it all.

Not mentioned yet, but The Jeff Beck Group....active from about 67-69. The core lineup were Jeff Beck, Ronnie Wood, and Rod Stewart. They changed drummers often, but this was the core of JBG.

L-R: Rod, Ron, dunno drummer, Jeff

After JBG came another supergroup....The Faces. It was born out of The Small Faces after Steve Mariott left and Ron Wood/Rod Sewart (after JBG) joining forces. This was the Mod gods coming together folks! LOL...They had to drop the "Small" part because Rod and Ron are both tall...or at least over 5'4 tall! lol cool See below lol

Of course various members of The Faces went on to do great things after, solo and otherwise. Kenney Jones joined The Who, Ronnie Lane did all sorts of cool things, Rod did the solo gig and still is, and Woodie's the last "new" Stone!

There's the original Small Faces, if you were just curious. They were a fantastic band, but kinda remained underground for folks outside of the UK.

This may be the ultimate supergoup of the late 60s-early 70s...The Plastic Ono Band. The talent in this pic is awe inspiring! Billy P, Moonie, D. Allman, Delaney and Bonnie, George Harrison, Klaus Voorman, Marianne Faithfull, etc...this was epic! cool

EC actually did perform w/ them several times when it was 1st getting off the ground and before Derek and the Dominoes. He's on the 1st album or so and did that infamous live show up in Tornoto. lolI consider Plastic Ono as one of EC's groups on his CV. lol

PBS shows this concert pretty often, especially around pledge week, lol. Check out Roy's backup band.

You can take a black guy to Nashville from right out of the cotton fields with bib overalls, and they will call him R&B. You can take a white guy in a pin-stripe suit who’s never seen a cotton field, and they will call him country. ~ O. B. McClinton

In fact, everybody that came out of Mr.B's band became a superstar.

Have ya'll noticed for quite sometime that some solo atrists are forming supergroups? Like for instance:

Gerald LeVert, Keith Sweat and Johnny Gill formed LSG and had some success

Tank, Ginuwine and Tyrese formed TGT, but they haven't gotten an album out due to record company conflicts, but continue to do shows together and some songs have been leaked on the internet

Kelly Price, Deborah Cox and Tamia had formed The Queen Project and are preparing to get it off the ground

Per Kelly Price's words the CD is complete but wont see the light of day for whatever reasons.....Man i bet it is KILLER, she said she has the finished product on her MAC......3 such strong voices i wonder what the problem was?? She said they all got along GREAT so i'm sure it was something else that happened with the deal.....DANG IT!

Wow too bad. The Queen Project concert in NYC was fantastic. I hope they come back. They all blew up the roof. Tamia is FANTASTIC!
