CBS picks a new 'Rock Star' band
No, it’s not Van Halen. This summer, CBS’ new band-in-need on Rock Star will be a Velvet Revolver-ish supergroup of metal vets called Supernova, featuring Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee, Metallica alum Jason Newsted, and Guns N’ Roses’ Gilby Clarke. Whichever J.D. Fortune wannabe wins the lead singer slot will join the band on tour and on a studio album in 2007. Dave Navarro and Brooke Burke are back as hosts, with Navarro telling Variety that there’ll be regular visits by celebrity judges. ”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.” Wait, Navarro and Moby are friends?
