the other guys

I have this great idea for a concept super-band that would be composed entirely of “the other guy” from popular Duos – you know, the less-talented member of the duo you’ve never heard of unless their name was literally in the band name. Some starter suggestions:

  • John Oates
  • Curt Smith
  • Andrew Ridgely
  • Art Garfunkle

It’d be easy to joke about how it’d be the worst band ever, but if you think about it, years of toiling behind the scenes of a more talented egomaniacal partner would mean they are primed for collaboration on a massive scale – leading, possibly, to the greatest rock band of all time!

Who else?
