(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
