Not too long ago, 3,000 lucky fans were treated to an evening of unexpected surprises thanks to world renowned DJ Steve Aoki, who hosted an unforgettable performance that included an appearance by legendary pop superstars Duran Duran.

Hungry Like the Wolf, Duran Duran Steve Aoki Concert

The defining moment of the night was a Steve Aoki produced remixed performance of the band’s classic hit, Hungry Like The Wolf, aptly named, “Hungry Like The Wolf: Steve Aoki vs. Duran Duran – The New York Werewolf Mix” that brought the house down.

The remix was the joint vision of electronic dance music master DJ Steve Aoki, and Duran Duran, who collaborated for weeks on the reinvention of the song. I wish that I had been there to see it!

I have a passion for music – specifically rock music. When members of different bands get together to collaborate, we tend to call them super groups. Over the years, I’ve watched many super groups form in the rock and roll genre and I definitely have my favorites!

The first one, and don’t laugh at me too much because I am totally dating myself here…

The Damn Yankees. I can’t help it. I was born in the 70’s, and I grew up listening to 80’s music, so when in 1989, Tommy Shaw of Styx and Jack Blades of Night Ranger got together with Ted Nugent and formed Damn Yankees, my little glam-rock heart almost had a heart attack. Unfortunately, they didn’t last long due to the rise of Grunge in the early 90’s but they were a fantastic band while they lasted.

And then there’s Velvet Revolver. Scott Weiland of Stone Temple Pilots? Check. Slash, Matt Sorum AND Duff McKagan of Guns N Roses? Check. Dave Kushner of Wasted Youth? Check. Oh My Gosh. I was on pins and needles for months leading up to the release of Velvet Revolver’s first album, Contraband. It was awesome. Magical. It was real rock n roll in a sea of emo pop. But they didn’t last…they broke up when Weiland went back to Stone Temple Pilots.

My very favorite super group was Velvet Revolver but I also really loved the collaboration between Travis and Mark on +44 after Blink-182 split up. Of course, they split up as well after only one album, but that made me very happy because they went back to Blink-182, which is my favorite (living) band.

That’s the thing about super groups. They never last because these rock n roll legends always really belong somewhere else.

    Wow, what a great combo! Love both those artists.

    My favorite collaboration is probably the David Bowie/Bing Crosby “Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth” Christmas song. :)

  2. says

    Hm, that is tough…I don’t keep up with a lot of that, but I do really love the Natalie Cole/ Nat King Cole combo for the song Unforgettable. I know it was done after Nat’s death, but it is really cool!

  3. Jolene says

    LOVE Endless Love by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross. The new one with Shania Twain is really good too!

    I TOO AM A PRODUCT OF THE 70’S. NOT MUCH INTO THE LATER GRUNGE. I ALSO LIKED THE COLLABORATION OF DAMN YANKEES. SOME GREAT ARTISTS IN ONE PLACE BUT WHEN IT COMES DOWN TO IT, HUNGRY LIKE A WOLF IS A CULT CLASSIC. EVEN MY 12 YEAR OLD KNOWS THE WORDS.

  9. Jennifer Peaslee says

    Back maybe 10 years ago, at a music awards show, there was a collaborative song between Green Day, Oasis, Travis, and Aerosmith…it was called “Boulevard of Broken Songs”…it was great! My favorite collaboration ever! jenniferpeaslee at gmail dot com

    Picture by Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow was a great, soulful collaboration. What an unexpected, yet cool couple they were!

  13. Suz says

    I’m with Jennifer — David Bowie & Bing Crosby singing Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth. Though Damn Yankees probably my favorite supergroup.

  14. Betty says

    Love Natalie with Nat King Cole, love Willie Nelson and Ray Charles
    There are so many great artists who have sang together on occasion that wasn’t recorded

  15. says

    I can’t tell you how much I love Duran Duran. With all my heart and soul, I love them! I met Johns Taylor several years ago and I was lucky enough to see the original 5 members before they permanently ditched Andy. Freaking awesome!

    I heart them so much! Thank you for sharing this. I’m in 80s waver heaven right now!
