Soundgarden and Queens of the Stone Age Members Form New Group

(Classic Rock) Soundgarden members Matt Cameron and Ben Shepherd have joined forces with Queens Of The Stone Age and Them Crooked Vultures' Alain Johaness and Dimitri Coats of Off! in a supergroup.

And the "fun little project" started out as a Facebook conversation with drummer Cameron, guitarist Coats has revealed. He tells Billboard: "I was like, 'Dude, I'm a huge fan! I consider myself to be a really excellent air-drummer, and I have trouble air-drumming to some of your fills.' He was like, 'Wow, that means a lot coming from you, because I'm huge fan of yours.' We became instant friends."

The conversation restarted a project Cameron, Shepherd and Johannes abandoned in 2008. "I'm kind of along for the ride," Coats admits. "Those guys have known each other for years. I really enjoy hanging out with them and I'm leaning a lot. We're working quickly - before I even feel like I've learned a song we're hitting the record button." more on this story
