Wednesday Question: Best Side Project?
If there's one thing in the rock world that just screams hit and miss, it's the side projects. Artists sometimes feel the need to express themselves in a slightly or drastically different manner, so occasional side projects simply come naturally. Despite often being successful, they also have a tendency to end up as flops due to numerous factors. But we'll put that aside and focus on the best. So this week we'll explore the side project domain. As the title clearly indicates, this week's Wednesday question is:

What is the best side project of all time?

There's a lot to chose from here. Tool's Maynard James Keenan and his side projects might pop up to your mind first, but basically every sub-genre has it's representatives. Did you know that In Flames were actually founded as a side project? If we were to dwell into the grunge domain, there's Mad Season. Among the hard rockers, there's Alter Bridge. Then there's Porcupine Tree, MD.45, Gov't Mule, the list goes on and on. So whoever your favorite may be, make sure you mention them in the comments and possibly secure the band a spot in the top 10. Just to get the facts straight, a side project is a musical endeavor of one or several musicians already known for their involvement in other groups. Same rules as usual apply - post one nomination per comment and upvote other comments you agree with (or downvote those you don't like). We'll gather up the results by Friday and traditionally compile our weekly list. May the best side project win!
