Les Claypool Forms Supergroup with Neil Peart, Stewart Copeland and Danny Carey

Les Claypool has joined forces with Rush’s Neil Peart, the Police’s Stewart Copeland and Tool’s Danny Carey to form “Carey Claypool Copeland Peart” or “CCCP.”

The supergroup is documented with a jam called “Count Drumula,” recently posted on Neil Peart’s website.

The extent of the collaboration is unclear, as no other announcements about the group has been made. With three drummers on board, the track is heavily percussion-based, with Claypool holding down a solid groove.

Our honorable mention goes to Carey, who adds some low end with a trombone and bass clarinet.
