This is pretty much the coolest thing I've heard in a while. A new rock supergroup called Tinted Windows has formed, comprised of former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Fountains of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, and Hanson vocalist Taylor Hanson.
No, really. I swear, it's true!
I'm excited for Taylor - too many people only think of "MMMBop" when they hear his name, and this will give him a chance to earn cred with a completely new group of guys. I'm also excited for Iha, who belongs in a popular band and deserves better than the headcase that is Billy Corgan.
Who knows what they'll sound like, but they already deserve huge points for thinking outside the box.
Tinted Windows already has a MySpace page... with no content. Their first gig will be next month at South By Southwest. I'm betting this is going to be one hotly-anticipated show!
