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 Sunday May 21 10PM*
NEW YORK, May 16 -- 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 in the process) in the ultimate
musical experiment. Premiering Sunday May 21 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 the band will come together as hard rock's saviors or
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
an iconic rock 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?
