New reports from www.realityblurred.com
Tommy Lee, guitarists from Metallica, Guns ‘n’ Roses will form new Rock Star 2 group Supernova
As promised earlier in the week, when Rock Star 2’s new format was revealed, the rockers involved have been announced. Along with Tommy Lee, who we already knew was participating, “guitarists Jason Newsted (Metallica) and Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), are forming a new band called Supernova,” Variety reports.
In addition, the show “has signed songwriter-performer Butch Walker to produce Supernova’s first album, to be released just before the new band hits the road in 2007,” Variety says.
Besides hosting the show with Brooke Burke, Dave Navarro says he’ll have “[f]riends of mine, like Slash, Macy Gray, Moby and Rob Zombie, … join us and throw in their two cents about who should stay and who should go.”

The identity of the Rock Star 2 group has been revealed, sort of. Executive producer Mark Burnett told the London Free Press that the group will not be a name band such as Van Halen. Instead, as the paper reports, it “will be a brand new group comprised of members from existing or defunct bands.” Those exact people will be revealed later this week.
This news explains last week’s rumor that Tommy Lee is participating in the show, perhaps as the new group’s drummer. And that also one of the possible directions the show would take in its second season.
Burnett said this format will be even better than the previous season’s. “Last year was the year to prove ourselves and the integrity that we stood for to the rock community. We’re gonna really, really grow this year,” he said. He said the delay in announcing the group is because everyone has to sign “very complicated agreements. You have a TV agreement, record agreement, a tour agreement, and there are a few people in the band.”
The show is currently casting, potential lead singers “were only told judges were open to hearing a range of singing styles, giving as examples John Mayer, Chester of Linkin Park, Joss Stone and Amy Lee of Evanescence,” the paper reports.
Typical entertainment company with heads in asses. Jason Newsted is not a guitarist, but rather a bassist! Next thing you know they’ll be telling us Tommy Lee is a rapper and not a drummer. (sarcasm mode turned off)
