Supergroup me, please
No one wants to hear yet another Oasis album, and the only people excited about Blur playing a concert in the summer are probably well into their 30s by now and think the Ting Tings are a pretty exciting act.
So why haven't all the best people from bands of yesteryear gotten together to form a Superband? It happened all the time 30 years ago - Wings, Cream, Emerson Lake & Palmer and the Traveling Wilburys...
Much like Man City bringing in a collection of the best talent in the world to play in the one team, the results can be pretty sketchy, but when it goes well the results are amazing.
With a lineup of George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty and Roy Orbison they were always gonna release a couple of decent numbers. Check out these two:
Traveling Wilburys - Handle with Care
Traveling Wilburys - End of the Line (Extended Mix)
