CKY, FIREBALL MINISTRY, CLUTCH Members Launch Side Project

CKY drummer Jess Margera told MTV.com that he has started a side project with FIREBALL MINISTRY's Jim Rota and CLUTCH frontman Neil Fallon.

"I was on a flight back from Germany, and I was looking at my iPod, and I looked at my top 10 list or whatever, and it was just like CLUTCH, PUNY HUMAN, FIREBALL MINISTRY, LED ZEPPELIN," he said. "So I called everybody but LED ZEPPELIN, for obvious reasons, because I was recording in my home studio. I just invited them all up to my house, and we worked on two or three songs. That turned into five songs, then eight, 10, and now we have 12 songs."

Margera said the Fallon-fronted act sounds like equal parts CKY, CLUTCH and FIREBALL MINISTRY, and had its first practice last month, following his pro-skateboarder brother Bam Margera's wedding to Melissa Rothstein. While the group does intend to release an album, he's not sure when that will be, given that the bands' hectic schedules will make tracking the LP difficult.

"It's like my supergroup, man," he enthused. "It's just cool as hell, and I'm psyched about it."

CKY is currently working on its as-yet-untitled fifth LP, due in the fall via Roadrunner Records.
