Rock Star Supernova

Published: 2006-03-17
The winner of this season's Rock Star reality television program will become the lead singer of Supernova.

If you haven't heard of the band before, don't be too surprised, because as of yet they don't exist. After weeks of speculation around who would be the band to reap the rewards of this season's Rock Star, producers decided to create a new band for the winner to head up.

Although the band will be brand new, the members that have already been decided are old pros. Supernova will include Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, and former Metallica member Jason Newsted on bass.

Last season the winner of the program, Canada's own JD Fortune, was rewarded the chance to head up existing Aussie rock band INXS. Though this season's band will be different, the competition will follow the same guidelines.

The new season, which will air on Global TV, will continue to feature hosts Brooke Burke and Dave Navarro. Navarro also hints that friends of his like Slash, Moby, and Macy Gray will stop by to help choose the winner.

Though Toronto auditions were already held earlier this week there still may be a chance for a Canadian to head up Supernova. If you think you're the next big thing, head down to the Roxy in Vancouver on March 23.

Supernova is slated to release an album in the fall, and will tour behind it early next year with their new lead singer.
