Grunge Supergroup Announce New Album!
Megaforce reports: On September 9, 2003, Wellwater Conspiracy will release its ultimate album of blistering music on Transdreamer/Megaforce Records. Inspired by its desire to mold the past and future, Wellwater has finally reached its boiling point with 11 of its finest songs in its history.
When you consider the accomplishments of Wellwater Conspiracy's members, from the ground-breaking Soundgarden to Monster Magnet to Pearl Jam, it's simply astounding that they have created and been involved with some of rock music's most historical albums.
Wellwater Conspiracy is fronted by Matt Cameron, the long-time drummer of the legendary Soundgarden, and now a current member of Pearl Jam, and John McBain, the original founding guitarist of Monster Magnet. The impetus for this band is plain and simple: "We don't have to write a hit single or any of that kind of junk. In that respect, it's great (laughs). I think that's reward in and of itself," says singer Matt Cameron.
"I love doing this project because we have a real sense of freedom," says Matt Cameron. "WWC is very rewarding for both of us and that's the main reason we like doing it. We just do what we want to do."

Keith Moon passed out on a The Who show in the early 70´s but the band asked if there was anyone in the audience who could play drums. A fan came up on stage to replace Moon and the band could finish the setlist for the night.
