Is it possible to form a rock and roll supergroup without a single super musician?
That’s the question CBS is going to try to answer on the next season of Rock Star when Jason Newstead (Metallica), Gilby Clarke (Guns ‘N Roses), and Tommy Lee (that sex tape) join forces to find a singer to lead this group that’s destined to make one radio-friendly single and then disappear forever. Hey, if you’re mediocre enough, maybe it’ll be you!
I’m sure there are a handful of
sad 36-year-old former metal heads people out there who would be willing to argue with me that Newstead, Clark, and Lee are super-talented musicians from great bands. To those people, I’d say two things. 1) Get a job. Seriously, you haven’t been able to hold down a job since you worked at that liquor store in ’89, it’s time to get your act together. And 2) Tommyland: The Ride.
Yeah. It’s going to be a Super show.
