Supernova

Has anyone else heard of this yet? I didn't watch Rock Star when they did the INXS thing, but now they have a new one coming and the band is Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted and Gilby Clarke. It's supposed to start this summer. Tommy Lee is no surprise because he has done reality shows before and Gilby Clarke doesn't exactly have a lot of big plans lined up I am sure. I guess Newsted is the most surprising choice here. He left superhuge Metallica to go play for relatively obscure progressive Canadian metal band Voivod yet now he is on a reality show? We will see how it pans out.

I enjoyed Rock Star INXS even though I did not agree with the winner at all. I bet that they can find a good one for these guys. Although the line up sounds a bit strange.

This just shows that, by leaving Metallica, Newsted basically killed his career. It also reeks of another made for tv band, a la The Monkees.

Fuzz-It does sound like an odd mix.

Bruce-I am torn on that issue because St. Anger got royally ripped by many people so it wouldn't exactly have helped Jason's career by staying for that. I was into Flotsam and Jetsam before Newsted went to Metallica and their debut was fantastic and Newsted's playing was great. He never got the chance to do anything close to that album during all his years in Metallica. And justice for all... was so poorly produced that you couldn't hear the bass at all. It only got slightly better here and there for Jason while he was in Metallica.
