People are always wondering when did the supergroup craze begin and was this more of a 21ST Century kind of deal? One of the earliest supergroups that I can remember was Asia which was formed in 1981 as it featured members of four different progressive rock groups forming the all star band of Progressive rock. For Wes Craven’s 1989 film Shocker, an all star group of pop rock kind of formed for a one off deal for the horror film’s soundtrack. The band was made up of Paul Stanley of Kiss and Desmond Child on Vocals, Vivian Campbell (at the time he was Ex-Dio and ex-Whitesnake) on guitar, Guy Mann-Dude on Guitar, Rudy Sarzo (Whitesnake/Quiet Riot) on bass, Tommy Lee (Motley Crue) on drums, and backing vocals by Michael Anthony (Van Halen) and Kane Roberts (Alice Cooper) which he also makes a cameo in the film as the buff construction worker. If you ask me this is one hell of a supergroup that they had on their hands. The song is actually pretty good even though it sounds so much like the 80’s, but you got to love it. Desmond Child is actually a really good singer as he keeps up with the talented and my favorite member of Kiss in Paul Stanley. Check out the song below and check out the film as well, I thought it was pretty good. The film stars Michael Murphy, Peter Berg, Mitch Pileggi, Cami Cooper, and so many more in this action packed horror flick.
