Supergroups have continually held an important place in music history – even recently with the birth of groups like Prophets Of Rage, the culmination of flavours and ideas talented musicians coming together brings to fanatics still creates an unmatched experience.
Chatting with The Young Turks recently, as reported by NME, Krist Novoselic has discussed who he’d like to start a supergroup with, citing Public Enemy’s Chuck D and The Doors’ drummer John Densmore as musicians he’d like to make collaborative magic with.
Although music fans have reconciled with the notion of never experiencing Nirvana’s grandiosity again, witnessing Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic still in action is quite special – seeing the world’s of psych, alt and rap together in this capacity would be quite a moment.
“John is great, I know John. He is one of my heroes,” he said, continuing: “Chuck D is great, Public Enemy. We should put a band together right there because I’ll be on bass, we’ll have John on drums, and Chuck will rap” he said.
Novoselic also shared his opinion on the Martin Shkreli saga, arguing that “In the end, in spite of himself, Shkreli proved that as a culture we don’t care about the details, we’re transfixed by the spectacle and that we don’t want to fix our problems.”
At the end of last year, Krist took to the stage with Foo Fighters onstage in Oregon, joining the band for a performance of the song ‘Big Me’. Check it out below:
