 :lol: considering the vast amount of users here that hate PJ and FF, I shall say “the shitstorm is going to be fucking epic”.

Matt Cameron posted a pic on Instagram of him playing with Dale in what looks like a practice space.

hey it's probably going to be great! Do you think this came about recently like after the Soundgarden Tribute show thing the band members were talking about it backstage?

 I don't get it. :? So it's both Buzz/Dale along w/ Hawkins & Cameron? 3 drummers & a guitarist/vocalist, or is Hawkins gonna play bass? I don't have any expectations for this. I know Buzz is like this father figure/big brother for these dudes, and he's always into new musical situations incase Melvins on it's own dries up, but WTF?
 Not sure why would Buzz and/or Dale waste their time with this. Cameron is a decent drummer that has always been right place/right time. Hawkins whatever, dude went from Alanis Morisette to Foo Fighters. Is Buzz just gonna put riffs/lyrics that aren't quite up to par for Melvins into this group?

Much like the reason they 'wasted their time' with Crystal Fairy it's for the potential pay off.

A band with Taylor Hawkins & Matt Cameron in it would command a lot more money from promoters than the Melvins would.

looks like melvins have been a bit quiet lately, no rumours about new albums in the works, as usually happens when they are not touring. probably they are concentrating on something else

I'd say there is still a good chance of new Melvins material this year. As regards this project, im not so excited but we'll see.

same here. to be honest i had very low expectations about the Crystal Fairy album as well but it ended being a surprise for me...with Buzz on vocals instead of Teri it would have been really good

That FF-drummer is the most slappable in that group, but everything Buzz touches is very often gold and he gives a flying fuck in what us fanboys means he should do and who he shall contribute with and that's in fact why we love Buzz and Melvins I guess.

I am looking forward to whatever these guys come up with. More music made by Buzz and Dale can only make the world a better place!

If this collaboration produces more Buzz vs Dave stories, then I'm all for it!

I don't get it. :Cameron is a decent drummer

Not that I’m sold on this but i have to argue Cameron is a pretty talented musician and much more than a decent drummer...the early wellwater conspiracy stuff was good

No one here even has an idea of how this will turn out, hopefully it will be excellent music, not as much of a publicity stunt.

Something like this should have already happened 20 years ago even, but people were too scared to approach the Melvins fearing it would be detrimental to their careers presumably...Something like that...it's all about money.


Melvins couldn't get a slice of pie before it was gone, now guess what? They're running the fuckin' bakery!

 My bad :oops:. I was thinking of the other guy that drummed w/ Pearl Jam, Jack Irons. Soundgarden's drummer was always the VIP of that band. I was a casual Soundgarden fan, lost interest after Superunknown.
 I'm sure this will be decent, we could all be pleasantly surprised. I know nothing about Hawkins, other than the two high-profile artists he's drummed for. He might be the coolest fucking guy in the world to hang out & jam with, but he always came off as a surfer-bro Spicoli type to me.

 The big question about all this is: who plays what? Is Dale retiring from drums to play bass, or will Hawkins play bass and we get a new Crover/Cameron dual-drum lineup. Will they play all new material, or rework Melvins classics or both? Questions, questions...

So many questions!

Personally i hope whatever this is, that it still falls under the Melvins moniker. I don't want to see another "side" project. I wonder whether part of doing this may be because the Crystal Fairy thing didn't work out too. That they just really want to do a side band.

it could be completely from outta left field. Grohl did the Probot project. it's possible.  :anonymous:

This is just an elaborate ruse for buzz to get in contact with grohl.

Not to mention Killing Joke. That pretty much redeems him for Foo Fighters in my eyes.

Crystal Fairy threads here and on fb were about ten times as much posts and enthusiasm. been a week and a half. seems pretty subdued.

Well you gotta look at the audience too. I'm guessing you aren't in the Pearl Jam and Soundgarden groups on FB to gauge their interest. Plus Crystal Fairy had more interaction by the members as far as interviews and whatnot. PLUS I'm guessing it's super early into whatever this thing is, if it's a group or if they're just going to get together and record a song or two or what.

In a way I hope that all goes over like water under the fridge between those two, I don't think all the money in the world is going to fix that though...it would take some kind of miracle.

I have friends like that who don't talk to me or want to deal with me, even though I was close enough to them to be at their wedding...it's sad but sometimes people just want to cut themselves loose and drift apart from you and hope you pick up the vibe, and there's Nothing you can do but take the hint and fuck off.

I think we can all relate.

I don't know him personally, but I think Buzz isn't someone you want to piss off...I will say that much.  :buzz:

Reminds me of the Broken Bat project with Ty Segall, Dale & Steven (just before Steven officially joined the Melvins).
If I had to guess Buzz put the kaibosh on that real quick  :lol:

I don't think it was Buzz. I seem to remember a Dale or Steven interview where they essentially said "Ty lost interest." I could be wrong.
