This is the year of the supergroup, says Gibson

Gibson has commended the rising number of rock giants who are opting to pool their talents.

Supergroup Chickenfoot
Great deals on musical instruments
br /> The electric guitar manufacturer said 2009 has so far turned out to be the year for supergroups, which it described as the "rock and roll equivalent of the all-star team".

Chickenfoot, which consists of Sammy Hagar and Michael Anthony of Van Halen, alongside Joe Satriani and Chad Smith of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, was highlighted as one such band.

Gibson also highlighted Dave Grohl's new venture - Them Crooked Vultures - as another example.

The Foo Fighters star recently swapped his electric guitar for a drum kit to play with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stone Age and Led Zeppelin's bass guitar player John Paul Jones.

No full tracks have yet been officially released by the supergroup, although they have played two gigs and released snippets of songs on video sharing site YouTube, as well as footage of them hard at work in the recording studio.
