VH1 is bringing together some of the biggest names in heavy metal to star in a new reality show. "Supergroup" will bring together Ted Nugent
, Anthrax's Scott Ian
, Skid Row's Sebastian Bach
, Evan Seinfeld
and Jason Bonham
to create a new band. The rockers will live together for two weeks in Las Vegas, Nevada, and film seven episodes for the show.
VH1 executive Michael Hirschorn says, "What I liked about SuperGroup was that is combined elements that have worked so well for us (before), with an organic music idea."
The musicians will endure boot-camp style training from iconic rock manager Doc McGhee in preparation for a concert at Las Vegas nightclub Rain. "SuperGroup" began filming Wednesday and will premiere May 18. The new band members have not committed to staying together beyond the filming of the show, but plans to record a single are being discussed.
