System Of A Down drummer John Dolmayan is asking fans to help fund a new side project. Dolmayan has launched a Kickstarter campaign for his new group, These Grey Men, which is planning a covers album and an accompanying tour.

The project promises a "star-studded" cast of musicians will appear on covers versions of tracks by Radiohead, Outkast, David Bowie and others. So far, drummer James Hazley of 90s band Cockeyed Ghost is the only other name confirmed for the band.

 

Dolmayan says: "I'm a huge music fan and have an iPod with over 10,000 or so songs on it that I listen to religiously. I often rearrange melodies in my head or think about how much fun it would've been to play on some of my favorite songs."
