Image by aurélien. via FlickrThe concept of the "supergroup" has been around since probably the Dirty Mac in the late sixties (John Lennon, Eric Clapton, Keith Richards, Mitch Mitchell). Although they only played one show, we have gotten pretty used to supergroups touring and, frankly, sucking. Usually there is a burst of creativity and then egos get in the way and the band fades away, leaving behind so much Potential.
But there is one thing that can make a supergroup great: chemistry. And the Dead Weather, consisting of Jack White (White Stripes), Alison Mosshart (The Kills), Jack Lawrence (Greenhornes) and Dean Fertita (Queens of the Stone Age), certainly have that. They recently released a video of an interview with the band that proves as much.
The organ pretty much makes this amazing.
Corn over flour tortillas? Blasphemy! Nevertheless, I want to see these guys live. I saw the Kills once and was pretty close to the stage and I completely fell in love with Alison Mosshart.
