    Heh, Skid Row's actually mildly interesting, and it would work .. the guitarist maintains the rights over the band name.

    Fuel would be awful. =(

    I'm surprised Bach doesn't just get back together with them. Didn't know there was that big of fallout with Skid Row.

    Comparing AIC to Creed, Nickelback, and Hanson makes me vomit a little in my mouth. Just goes to show how different tastes can be.

    Fuel has had a couple big songs, most were on alternative type rock stations, the only one I can think of that got play across all stations was Hemorage (leave love bleeding in my hands, etc). They had a couple good CDs IMO.

    And who cares who the band is? Were people actually watching the TV show because it was INXS, or were you watching because you got to see AI with better songs and a band? I'm curious, because I didn't watch the show other than once or twice.

    It comes down to having a sufficient catalog to support the elimination round, IMO. INXS was able to go over a month without having any songs repeated, because they've had more than a dozen top 40 hits. No one wants to listen to the same song(s) every week at the end, nor do they want to hear songs no one knows.

    After reading/seeing interviews with Eddie and Alex VH over the years, there is no way their personalities would let Rock Star VH ever happen. David Lee Roth is probably just spinning rumors to piss off the VH brothers. No matter what the band, it will be eons better than American Idol. I am sick of watching these "men" sing as if they just got done watching The View while mainlining estrogen, and eating bon-bons. Come-on guys!!

    How about "Rockstar Greatful Dead"? The show will be 3 hours long with only one contestant performing a never ending jam each night.

    He's looking worn these days, and he is struggling with a drinking problem, but that one really is just a bad picture.

    Except for the fact that they have had Jonny Solinger as their singer since 1998.

    :up: i think there are rumors that tommy lee, jason newsted and one of the former GNR member are forming a band and they want their lead vocalist to undergo a reality contest.-----------------------------------------------------

    from MTV news

    Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted Turn To 'Rock Star' For Supergroup Singer

    Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke is also on board for newly formed Supernova.

    Over the last few weeks, hundreds of undiscovered singers have been blindly auditioning for the second season of CBS' "Rock Star," not knowing which band they'd be asked to front should they follow in J.D. Fortune's footsteps and walk away from the reality television experiment victorious.

    The producers behind "Rock Star" have now revealed that they've recruited three big names to form a rock supergroup, musicians who will leave it up to America to find the band's voice.

    Mötley Crüe kitman Tommy Lee, former Metallica bassist and current Voivod member Jason Newsted, and onetime Guns N' Roses axeman Gilby Clarke will be banding together as Supernova, utilizing the Mark Burnett-produced "Rock Star" to secure a lead singer.

    The show's first season featured the surviving members of INXS. Fortune was picked to replace the late Michael Hutchence, and the revived outfit released Switch in November (see "INXS Insist Finding J.D. Was An 'Organic' Process, Think 'Angels Got Together' "). To date, the album has sold close to 308,000 copies.

    Burnett's team has enlisted songwriter Butch Walker to produce the inaugural Supernova offering, which will be released in 2007, in conjunction with a full U.S. tour. Walker has produced and written tunes for the likes of Avril Lavigne, Pink, Bowling for Soup, Sevendust and Lindsay Lohan. He also worked with Lee on his 2005 solo release, Tommyland: The Ride.

    Dave Navarro and Brooke Burke are set to return as the show's hosts. Each week, "Rock Star" will feature guest appearances by notable musicians and other celebrities. "Friends of mine, like Slash, Macy Gray, Moby and Rob Zombie, will join us and throw in their two cents about who should stay and who should go," Navarro told Variety.

    Lee remains an active Crüe member, and Newsted — who left Metallica five years ago — is preparing for the spring launch of Katorz, the first Voivod album in the band's 20-plus-year career recorded without founding guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour, who succumbed to colon cancer back in late August (see "Voivod Guitarist Denis 'Piggy' D'Amour Dies Of Cancer At 45 "). Clarke's résumé includes his three-year tenure as the rhythm guitarist for GN'R, and a brief stint with L.A. Guns. He also played with the reformed MC5 on their 2005 European tour.

    Alice in Chains drummer Sean Kinney told MTV News last month that the band had been approached by the producers of "Rock Star" for the second season, but that they turned the offer down (see "Remaining Alice In Chains Members Reuniting For Summer Gigs "). The surviving members of that group — Kinney, bassist Mike Inez, and guitarist Jerry Cantrell — have reunited, and are planning a brief run of U.S. clubs this May. Alice in Chains are in the process of auditioning singers who'll be asked to step into the late Layne Staley's shoes for the group's imminent touring and recording plans.

    With Supernova in place for the talent contest, the "Rock Star" camp could end up running into some legal trouble down the line over the supergroup's name. Back in the early 1990s, a poppy punk trio called Supernova emerged from California's Orange County. The band, which released its first album on Atlantic Records in 1995, is perhaps best known for the track "Chewbacca," which appeared on the soundtrack to Kevin Smith's "Clerks."

    I heard about this last week on Sirius Hair Nation. I'll probably watch because I like the members of the new Supernova.

    I might record a few and see how it turns out. I like the members, too, especially Newsted.

    I never watched the show.
    I did see INXS at the House of Blues 2 Fridays ago, the lead singer was terrible.
    He acted so fake on stage. Didn't sound too good either.
    Maybe he needs more time touring with the band.

    Woo-hoo - Just found out a fairly good friend of ours is going to be one of the editors on this show and can get me tickets to any of the shows I want to see. Finally, a connection that I can cash in on :) :eek: :)

    [One friend of mine worked on Nashville Star and could have gotten me tickets - if I bought a plane ticket to Nashville!! Another friend of mine is post-production on Amazing Race, but this helps me not at all. And that's it for my friends in television.]

    Oh, I know he's talking about the TV show.
    I'm wondering if the former bassist for Driveshaft is now in the cast of Lost, and if so who he is.

    Or am I just really missing something here?! :confused:
