Another vote for Hindu Love Gods (basically: REM - Michael Stipe + Warren Zevon). I wore that album out back in 1990. And I really dug Brian May's Star Fleet Project back in 1984.

That was going to be one of my more recent pics, along with last year's Divine Fits - which paired Spoon's Britt Daniels with Wolf Parade's Dan Boeckner and New Bomb Turks Sam Brown.

I'll also add...

Tinted Windows - Adam Schelsinger (Fountains Of Wayne, and for that matter, Ivy, which is another side project for Schelsinger), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), Bun E. Carlos (Cheap Trick) and Taylor Hanson (Hanson).

Temple Of The Dog - Chris Cornell and Matt Cameron from Soundgarden, and a pre Pearl Jam Jeff Ament, Stone Gossard, Mike McCready and Eddie Vedder.

Re: Your favorite "side projects" from musical artists?

Rocket from the Crypt was technically a Drive Like Jehu side project I think.

I really enjoyed the Kostars record (Luscious Jackson side project)

And the Twilight Singers (technically an Afghan Whigs side project?)

Mark Lannegan seems to be a professional side project participant.

The Thorns, with Matthew Sweet, Pete Droge, and Shawn Mullins was also a nice album/concert.

And Rockpile being one of my all-time favorite bands, I'll second that nomination!

Nice, never heard of that project I'll have to check it out. And if you like that you a may like Mutual Admiration Society (Phillips and the Watkins siblings), actually saw them on a live music show (can't remember the name) and that's how I discovered Nickel Creek.

Mutual Admiration Society has a lot of live shows (Along with Sara Watkins and the Watkins Family Hour) on the Live Music Archive.

Also, if you like Sara Watkins, she was on the Nerdist podcast a few months ago.

Yeah I love the archive, but I never looked for MAS on there, so I'll definitely check it out. And yeah I like Sara's solo stuff as well, so I'll check that out. I pretty much like all of Nickel Creek's side projects, such talented souls. And now that I think of it, catching water in my mouth that Sara had spit out would be refreshing. Thanks for the suggestsions.

Moon Duo is the guitarist from Wooden Shjips' side project. I think Moon Duo is also better than Wooden Shjips.

Grinderman.

Re: Your favorite "side projects" from musical artists?

Does one-off soundtrack work count? The Edge did one solo soundtrack/score for the film Captive and it's pretty awesome.



In line with the theme I enjoy Mike + the Mechanics and The Power Station or the Moroder team ups like Philip Oakey and Giorgio Moroder or Giorgio Moroder and Joe Esposito.
