Default Side Project Board is Dead ... What bands am I missing out on?

I'm a huge fan of the Foos, but I was surprised when I didn't care much for TVC at first. Then my taste really started becoming diverse and I love them. I bought Red Light Fever by Taylor's band and it sounded like a mix of Rush and Queen, it was great. I just started listening to some QOTSA again after not listening to them in a long time. I also started listening to Sunny Day Real Estate and I love them. I recall my drum teacher a couple years back recommending them cause I loved the Foos but I never tried em out until yesterday. So I'm officially at that point where I'll like anything if any of the Foos are in it lol, I'm also just liking anything and everything which is good cause it's great as a musician to have a diverse taste. So what other side projects am I missing out on?

You can try Chris's side project Chris Schiflett and the Dead Peasants...it took me a while to warm up to it. It's pretty good. Or for that matter Chris's other project Me First and the Gimme Gimmes if you want to hear some cool punk covers.

^ Also, Chris' other band 'Jackson United'. Western Ballads is a way better CD than Harmony & Dissidence in my opinion, however Dave and Taylor split drum duties on the latter making it pretty interesting to hear them work together outside of Foo Fighters.

Thanks for some reason I could not remember Jackson United.

My favorite thing Chris is involved with is Viva Death. They have kind of a surf-punk sound. It's great. I like Jackson United as well.

Jackson United, Viva Death, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, Dead Peasents, Fire Theft, The Jealous Sound. Not so much a 'side project' but Germs and No Use For A Name.

Fire Theft is for me the BEST foo related album. Took me about as long as a year to fully get it but I rank it on my top albums now. Even higher than foo albums.

Good luck!
