— Ace Yeah, I know, most of America wasn't watching this show last year, which was too bad, because it was really pretty good. It was like American Idol, sort of, except with rock songs instead of the thousandth rendition of The Carpenter's Superstar.
Afte various rumors of Queen or Van Halen using the show to find new singers, they've decided to just create a new band. But it's not just a bunch of session musicians or wannabes -- there's some genuine names in the group.
Motley Crues Tommy Lee, Metallicas Jason Newsted, and Guns n Roses Gilby Clarke will form the rest of the group, which will produce an album and tour in 2007. The show airs this summer, but its still casting, although time is running out. If you have what it takes to front a group with those four rockers, apply now.
Well, not huge names. Tommy Lee isn't primarily known for his drumming anymore, Jason Newsted got booted out of Metallica, and Gilby Clarke was as much of a crucial member of Guns 'n Roses as Jm. J. Bullock was.
The band is to be called "Supernova," which is just awful. They should have fans of the show send in their own recommendations and vote on the name, too. Can't be any worse than "Supernova."
"No va" in Spanish means "it doesn't go," right?
So Super "No Va" seems about right...

As for "manufactured supergroups," Brooks & Dunn were put together by their producer or record co. or somesuch and haven't done half badly out of it.

Anyway, it was a funny movie. It was a mixture of Something About Mary, Best in Show, American Pie, and Austin Powers.

Hey, c'mon now, i'm all for bashing Metallica but Voivod? Great band. Sure, their last few albums are less then stellar, but their 80 to mid 90's stuff is awesome. "Killing Technology ", "Dimension HatrÃ¶ss", "Nothingface"...great stuff.
