Best Spin-Off Band or Supergroup

It's gotta be a tie between Arcadia ( Simon le Bon, Nick Rhodes, & Roger Taylor of Duran Duran) or Neil Finn's supergroup from the "7 Worlds Collide" live shows. Check out this line up:

Neil Finn: Vocals, guitar
Eddie Vedder (of Pearl Jam): Vocals, guitar
Johnny Marr (of The Smiths): Guitar, vocals
Ed O'Brien (of Radiohead): Guitar, vocals, assorted noises
Phil Selway (of Radiohead): drums
Sebastien Steinberg (of Soul Coughing): bass
Lisa Germano (awesome solo artist & former John Mellencamp fiddle player): keyboards, vocals, guitars



Ok...your turn!

Would Foo Fighters be a spin-off of Nirvana? I'd vote for them...

here's a quirky choice. I'm quite taken with Looper, started by the bassist (I think) from "Belle and Sebastian".

The Highwaymen:

Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson (hehehe), Waylon Jennings...

Country, but still a great super-group nonetheless.

Spinoff group:

Wings
Pearl Jam (from MotherLoveBone)

what do you think of the supergroup "the dirty mac" that played "yer blues" at the rolling stones rock and roll circus back in 1968:

john lennon on rhythm guitar and vocals, eric clapton on lead guitar, keith richards on bass, and mitch mitchell of the jimi hendrix experience on drums.

or if you like technical perfection:

john mc laughlin, al di meola and paco de lucia recorded perhaps the best guitar playing ever on "friday night in san francisco".

Is it really a spin off when a band breaks up and the members go on to form other bands?
