Festival analysis:Soundwave 2013

Making a Soundwave “spare parts” supergroup

Thanks to an unofficial revolving door policy for most bands on the bill, Soundwave is just as significant for the musicians taking the stage, as the ones left behind. Indeed, for every Robert Trujillo, there’s a Jason Newsted; every Joey Belladonna, a Josh Bush. So what better way to honour their absence than with a fictitious supergroup featuring dual vocalists, strings and a double rhythm section (quadruple-kick FTW). Unfortunately, we couldn’t find a spot for Len’s singer Marc “Steal My Sunshine” Costanzo, who – believe it or not – was a founding guitarist of Canadian skate-punks Sum 41. Oh, and special mention goes to Anthrax, who gave us no less than 18 former members (see above) to cherry-pick from.

Jason Newsted (ex-Metallica, bass)
Nick Oliveri (ex-Kyuss, bass)
Paz Lenchantin (ex-A Perfect Circle, violin)
Adam “Atom” Willard (ex-Offspring, drums)
Zac Farro (ex-Paramore, drums)
Josh Homme (ex-Kyuss, vocals)
Josh Bush (ex-Anthrax, backing vocals)
Dez Cadena (ex-Duff McKagan’s Loaded, rhythm guitar)
Dave Mustaine (ex-Metallica, lead guitar)
Josh Farro (ex-Paramore, rhythm guitar)

Why are there so many different shades of grey on the first pie chart?

Trying to appeal to the female demographic, FL?

Imagine the press release when a member leaves:

We regret to inform all our fans that Nameless Ghoul has left Ghost. Nameless Ghoul has stated that he is saddened by this, but Nameless Ghoul and Nameless Ghoul discussed it and decided it was the right choice. Nameless Ghoul has been brought in to replace Nameless Ghoul.

Better fix your shit pie chart. This is the most fucked-est article I have seen written in my life. This shows that you are just a bunch of fucks. So funny paying one of the best Line ups ever in Ausralia. Yeah your a music site aren't ya. So funny paying out music fans. I haven't seen you do this to Big Day Out, SOTG or any other festival. Lame actions.

Maybe the creative differences he quit for were because the rest of the band didn't want to make a Warhammer concept record.
