VH1 Breaks out the Big Guns to Turn the Heat up on Hard Rock
Ted Nugent, Scott Ian, Sebastian Bach, Evan Seinfeld and Jason Bonham
Come Together to Resuscitate Hard Rock for VH1's 'SuperGroup'
'SuperGroup' Premieres Thursday May 18 10PM*
NEW YORK, March 2 -- While Ozzfest may prosper and Motley
Crue shows sell out, the kingdom of hard rock, still waits for a powerful
force to regain dominion over the power chords cut by crunk, pop-punk, and
indie rock. Fortunately, VH1 has assembled some of the heaviest rock icons,
who stand ready to thrash a new trail of carnage and excess and to lead the
hard rock world as their new gods of thunder.
VH1's "SuperGroup:" Ted Nugent, Scott Ian, Sebastian Bach, Evan Seinfeld
and Jason Bonham, are poised to re-conquer the rock world (and hopefully
spread a little debauchery and black leather in the process) in the ultimate
musical experiment. Premiering Thursday May 18 at 10:00 p.m., "SuperGroup"
will bring together these five hard rocking icons and present them with the
opportunity to create the heaviest 'SuperGroup.' Ultimately viewers will see
whether or not band will come together as hard rock's saviors or simply
Over a of period two weeks in Las Vegas, legendary rock manager, Doc
McGhee, will shepherd the group towards their fate as hard rock heroes. As a
respected manager, he automatically commands the respect of the band members
and is not afraid to crack the whip. He's a taskmaster with a two-week
deadline that can't be missed. On day one, Doc will clearly lay out the
stakes, goals, and the limited time that the SuperGroup truly has to
revitalize and rule hard rock.
Their quest will culminate with a massive concert at The Empire Ballroom
in Vegas. Yet the question remains, hard rock is ready to be saved but is the
"SuperGroup" ready to save hard rock?
