If you were a fan of Rockstar:INXS, you might be happy to know that when the show returns this summer, they'll be shaking things up a bit. After several bands in need of a lead singer (including the likes of Van Halen and Alice In Chains) turned down the opportunity to be part of the Rockstar's second season, creators had to come up with a new idea, pronto. So this is what's going to happen when the show comes back: Contestants will now have the chance to be crowned lead singer of a newly formed band consisting of some of rock's finest performers recruited for the show. This soon to be kick ass, dirty rockin', throw your bras up on stage and show us some titties "super group" will be called Supernova. To my ultimate delight, hot, hot, hot, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former bassest for Metallica Jason Newsted and ex Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clark will all be band members. What a frick'n dream for an unknown to suddenly be thrown in a band with these guys. I mean, they are already going to have automatic groupies before they even put out a record. Holla!
Rockstar will also be inviting some of the first season's finalists to come back and compete a second time around. I'm not sure how much I like that idea or how fair it really is since past favorites will already have an "in" with the audience votes. It's being reported that Suzie McNeil (blah) who took 4th place in season one has already been asked to return. The show will also have some good 'ol friends of Dave Navarro (who will be returning) like Slash, Moby, Macy Gray and Rob Zombie stopping by as celebrity guests and throwing in their two cents on who sucks and who rocks. That will definitely add some spice to the show, but hopefully they won't end up as wimpy as the celebrity judges on Idol were. Source: E!
