THE ELEVEN: Best 2nd Bands By Famous Singers

For a singer to leave a mega-band and start a new band...the pressure is enoromous. So very rarely does it ever work out. Here's a list of the best 2nd bands for singers. Note: this is not just 2nd bands for any member of a previous band....the reason why Foo Fighters or Love and Rockets are not on here. Also, no solo work either. That's a no brainer.
  1. Wings (Paul McCartney – The Beatles)
  2. Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young (David Crosby – The Byrds)
  3. Crowded House (Neil Finn – Split Enz)
  4. Megadeth (Dave Mustaine – Metallica)
  5. The Mars Volta (Cedric Bixlar – At The Drive-In)
  6. Sebadoh (Lou Barlow – Dinosaur Jr.)
  7. Audioslave (Chris Cornell – Soundgarden)
  8. Cracker (David Lowery – Camper Van Beethoven)
  9. Polyphonic Spree (Tim De Laughter - Tripping Daisy)
  10. Porno For Pyros (Perry Ferrell – Jane’s Addiction)
  11. Velvet Revolver (Scott Weiland – Stone Temple Pilots)
