This Could be Interesting...

From Billboard:

Former Smashing Pumpkins guitarist James Iha, Cheap Trick drummer Bun E. Carlos, Hanson's Taylor Hanson and Fountains Of Wayne bassist Adam Schlesinger have formed a new band, Tinted Windows.

The group has recorded its debut album at Stratosphere Sound Studios in New York, which Schlesinger and Iha co-own with Ivy's Andy Chase. The set is expected this spring on a label to be announced.

Tinted Windows will play its first major show at Billboard's South by Southwest showcase, to be held March 20 at Pangaea in Austin, Texas.

I hope no one will take umbrage here when I say that the week link in this bunch strikes me not as the kid from Hanson but that Iha idiot.

Seriously -- the most useless musician in rock and roll history since Steve Knight, the keyboard guy nobody ever heard in Mountain.

No Scott Weiland? WTF?

Actually, Iha did a solo record called "Let It Come Down" about 10 years back that was not too bad.

There was a keyboard player in Mountain? Who knew!

In fairness, the keyboard guy in Mountain did some very nice stuff on their one good album "Nantucket Sleighride."

But I can testify that in person he might has well not even have been plugged in.

Thanks Sal,

Sounds very promising. I hear a definite Cheap Trick vibe.
