I'd call 'em "The Beatles". Oh, wait.... someone just told me that's already been done.
Then how about: Barry Manilow, Yanni, Neil Diamond and Madonna. I'd call the band "Yawn - i".
Supergroups (those by design and not by accident) have rarely been more than sum of their parts. And quite often, a lot less.
Years ago I fantasized about the following combo:
Steve Jones: guitar
Rattt Scabies; drums
Sami Yaffa: bass
Michael Monroe: vox
Didn't think of any names, though. Scum would've done.
Hey, wait a second. Wouldn't Michael's current line-up w/ Steve Conte, Ginger, Sami and Karl Rockfist be pretty close. At least, live they were. All-star, maybe not. Rock band, most definitely. Rock is chemical (rather than mechanical). How's that.
Heikki - wow that knocked a cobweb out of the memory attic..... did you ever hear Rene Berg's "The Leather, The Loneliness and Your Dark Eyes"? (Rat Scabies, Bernie Torme, Paul Gray and Rene - who was in Hanoi Rocks for about an hour and a half before they hung it up the first time).... pretty fun record....worth finding, if only for a completist's mentality....
Used to have his sole (?) solo album. Must've ditched it at some stage when "cleaning". Yes, I've got rid of a reasonable share of my collection over the years. Didn't first think I could do it but easier done than said. I hope the ones I have parted ways with all found a better home where they've been loved and cherished. Looking at another thread there are lots of good artists we all apparently do not just get;)
Yeah, I have a problem with 'supergroups' - like Heikki said, they're rarely the sum of their parts. The internal chemistry of the band weighs too heavily to just throw players together and expect brilliance.
That being said, I would have liked to have heard what Led Zep would have sounded like with Terry Reid on vocals. At the same time, I'm glad he turned 'em down. And if I had to make my own, it might be:
Richard Lloyd - guitar
Jack Bruce - bass
Janet Weiss - drums
and someone who can sing like Steve Marriott did.
