In 1968, there was Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. Then, in the late 1980s, we saw the Traveling Wilburys, made up of Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne and Roy Orbison.
These are supergroups, short-lived musical dream teams. And today, there is case/lang/veirs, the moniker for Neko Case, k.d. lang and Laura Veirs and the name of their collaborative album.
Lang, a multi-Grammy winner, suggested the supergroup several years ago, and the trio spent two and a half years writing together between touring and their own musical projects.
