Default Should Lindsey form his own supergroup?

I mentioned the idea of Lindsey collaborating more with other musicians now that he is free from FM. So who do you think Lindsey should form his own band with? My dream, for obvious reasons, is for him to work with Benmont Tench from the Heartbreakers. He could also add Nancy Wilson from Heart as a second guitarist since her band can't keep it's $%&# together these days either.What about Don Felder from the Eagles? Even better, Sheryl Crow as a second singer/songwriter.

I'm sure he'll be steering clear of any Heartbreakers.

Erm, don't think he'd work with yet another member of a band stuck on the Greatest Hits tour circuit.

1) First off, he doesn't need the drama or headache of another group....let him just concentrate on his solo stuff.

2) I don't think Benmont would do that to Stevie....he's very much a stand up guy.

3) Nancy already has a new band....Roadcase Royale.

4) Don Felder....no real thoughts or feelings one way or the other.

5) Sheryl?!? SERIOUSLY??? See #2 above....and magnify it tenfold!!!

Truth be told, I've always wanted to see him do something more with Kim Carnes after their duet on her "Barking At Airplanes" album.

I would also KILL to see him produce the next HAIM album!

Nope, just keep working away in his home studio and bring Brett, Neal and Walfredo in every now and again if he needs a live "band" feel for a song.

Don Felder isn't much of a songwriter ("Hotel California", "Those Shoes", and "Victim of Love" excepted), his vocals are very run-of-the-mill, and Lindsey outpaces him on guitar IMHO. They do share a common dislike of Don Henley. Don Felder also feels he was unfairly fired, although he contributed far less to the Eagles than LB has to Fleetwood Mac.

Still, I don't think a collaboration would produce much. I guess if Lindsey needed another guitarist for his supergroup, Felder would do. Just make sure he gets his "fair share" and be prepared for him to want to renegotiate later, lawyered up if things don't go his way!

Fact is, Lindsey doesn't need a band but I do think he needs collaboration because it is part of his talents and his talents should not be wasted.

I have a dream band for Lindsey to form:

Lindsey Buckingham - lead guitar/vocalist/songwriter
Iris DeMent - piano/vocalist/songwriter
Florrie - drums/vocalist/songwriter
Peter Hook - bass

i'd love to read Gerald's choices here.

i have a few of my own too, but will just sit back and read what others think first.

he needs to go alternative is all i'll say. just look at the bands that played his songs at the Musicares as a start!

Neko Case.

i know he wanted to work with Jenny Lewis but she's too mellow for my taste.

I'd just prefer another OMS even though I love Brett, Neale, etc. I'm sure he'd prefer the boys to be there, but I love acoustic very much.
