Jonathan Cohen reports for Billboard.com:
Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke have formed a new band, Supernova, and will utilize the CBS reality show "Rock Star" as the vehicle by which to select a lead singer. The show will premiere this summer.
Once a singer has been selected, Supernova will hit the studio with producer Butch Walker (Pink, Avril Lavigne) to record an album that will be released in the fall. A world tour will follow in early 2007.
Guitarist Dave Navarro and actress Brooke Burns will return as the show's hosts. Navarro promises appearances from Slash, Macy Gray, Moby and Rob Zombie during the competition.
Last fall, "Rock Star" debuted as a talent search for a new INXS frontman. With winner J.D. Fortune in tow, the group has revived its career with a new album, "Switch," and an extensive tour.
