** Legend has it that this was [[WhatCouldHaveBeen nearly]] ''[[Music/JimiHendrix Hendrix]]'', Emerson, Lake, and Palmer ([[FunWithAcronyms HELP]]). Whether there's any truth to this legend or not, it wasn't meant to be anyway, for reasons that are all too well-known.
*** Close, but not quite. Keith Emerson and Greg Lake did have plans on having Hendrix in the band, but the drummer was going to be Jimi's long-time drummer, Mitch Mitchell (HELM).

* Mr. Big were a subversion. They were predominantly a group of well respected session musicians, with two members from underground acts (Racer X, The Eric Martin Band). Basically, they were a super group of people who weren't famous.


Added DiffLines:

* The Transplants (Music/{{Rancid}}, Operation Ivy, The Slackers, Music/Blink182). Their name even alludes to this fact.

Compare DreamTeam (a group of similarly talented individuals are formed). See also AllStarCast (several famous actors are all part of the same work).

* The Last Hard Men (Music/SkidRow, Music/SmashingPumpkins, Music/TheBreeders, The Frogs). Originally formed to cover Music/AliceCooper's "School's Out" for the soundtrack to the first ''{{Franchise/Scream}}'' film, they ended up producing a full album of original material, albeit one that lingered in DevelopmentHell for four years before it's eventual release.
