'When Music Collides' A Different Viewpoint


It’s been a minute or two since I’ve posted a ‘When Music Collides’ segment.  Today, I’m putting a different spin on the theory of music collision.




What happens when four powerhouse musicians get together and jam? You get an amazing supergroup!

Our supergroup today involves the talents of Glenn Hughes, Derek Sherinian, Joe Bonamassa, and Jason Bonham.




Now I know my readers. And I know that many are you are either running for Google or asking yourself just who these guys are.  Let me save you a little effort :)



Glenn Hughes is known for his work with Deep Purple and Black Sabbath.
Derek Sherinian is known for his work with Dream Theater and Alice Cooper
Joe Bonamassa is one badass blues rock guitarist who opened for BB King when he was 12 years old (Joe was 12, not BB King!)
and Jason Bonham is the son of Led Zeppelin’s rock legend John Bonham


Together they call themselves

Black Country Communion


They have been jamming and performing together since 2009.  I’ve put together a playlist with a few of their tunes.

Have a listen and tell me what you think of this musical collision.



So… what do you think?

Was this a Fun collision, or just a train wreck?


Tell me about it in the comments below.

Today’s post is part of the Monday’s Music Moves Me blog hop, hosted by Xmas Doily, and her pals.  Be sure to stop by the hosts and visit the other participants.

    1. In between great and horrible, eh? That a lot of room for either bad or good.

  2. Mary,

    Great introduction. I've heard of these band members probably from you or other BoTBers. These aren't typically mewsicians I listen to but I've come to get quite the education from other bloggers such as you. I'd have to say this was a fun collision. I like more songs on the playlist than I thought I would. :) I'm not sure if it's enough to sell me on buying a CD but it's good to hear this kind of mewsic on occasions. Thanks for hitting the dance floor with the 4M crew, my friend!

    1. Thanks, Cathy

      I like introducing new stuff to people. Some times it's hit or miss, but still fun to learn about everyone. Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks dawlin'

      Looks to me as if you may have found a rather mis-matched new battle :)
      It feels good to be back in the driver's seat again. Now if I can only come up with a battle for next week that is at least semi-mediocre. I have a few idears in my head. Let's see how it all plays out...

    2. I'm actually way ahead this time, for once. My next Battle has already been written and scheduled for posting at 12:33 AM on 1/15.

      I am NEVER this far ahead! But this being my 100th Battle, I've known for a long time what songs and artists I would use, so I figured I might as well go ahead and write the thing up now.

      I'll probably NEVER be this far ahead on a Battle ever again.

  4. I'm actually liking this sound. But I'm a fan of Bon Jovi, Marilyn Manson, classical music, Mississippi delta blues, and just about everything in between, so go figure. Have you checked out the quintessential new rock sound of Palaye Royale? ~grin~ I can't pimp this young band's cool music enough.

    1. Haha Darla!

      These guys do sound pretty good. Can't say I've listened to this band you keep going on about. Maybe I'll read up on them on your blog one day.

    2. Oh, please do. Here's a link, even: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lZjEA8EwEL4

      I swear they need to put me on the payroll. ~wink~ Hope you're well!

  5. Nope, never heard of these guys before and either has the hubby & he's the musician in this family. They're okay, but I guess I'm just an oldies fan. Hubby said they were okay too, but see he's a 70's to 90's fan like me too. Sorry guess I'm not much help.

  7. I like the sound! Not too heavy, and Joe Bonamassa is a tremendous guitar player.

    1. Thanks, John! These guys are really making a name for themselves. It's good to see supergroups have longevity. I predict good things in their future.

  9. Definitely new to me - but I'm with John, I actually liked it! :) Thanks for sharing - and thanks for the dance! :)

  10. I've heard of two of the four (and I know who Jason's Dad was!) But I haven't heard of this supergroup. My son is a big Dream Theatre fan and my husband loved Led Zepplin. The song wasn't bad. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com
