Music Monday: Famous Band Side Projects

By Brock Seng

Side projects usually suck. Let’s be honest here. A lot of us don’t listen to side projects. It’s from the theory: if you support a side project then that’ll become the main band and you’ll lose the bigger band. Hence, Gorillaz.

I’m here to tell you that theory is wrong. Side projects are very much present in today’s music scene. And a lot (but not all) are pretty great.

In this blog post, I’ll show you some main bands and their side projects and songs you should check out from the side projects. That way you can begin to build up your own little side project collection on your iPod. What might even surprise you is that a lot of “side projects” you probably didn’t even know were side projects…
