Last week the members of Supernova, Gilby Clarke, Jason Newsted, and Tommy Lee, chose Canadian Lukas Rossi as the winner of the show and vocalist for their group. While this is not exactly news, here is what people are saying and what has happened since then:
Lukas Rossi checked in with Canada.com after being delared frontman for the band. Asked what his reaction was when he found out, Rossi responded, "Overwhelmed, man, you know. But I wasn't going to walk away from this without being the singer, man. I was pretty determined." Asked if he knew going into it that he was going to emerge the victor, the Toronto native responded, "Well, yes and no. If the band chose somebody besides myself because it would have made the band what they wanted for their vision then I would step back and respect that. But, you know, I'm standing here now and obviously I was the right person for the job." You can read more here.
There was some drama when Lukas snubbed his girlfriend at the 'Rock Star' afterparty. On his first official night in Tommy Lee's band, Supernova, 'Rock Star' winner Lukas Rossi left his girlfriend out in the cold as he partied with the band at a local club. Lukas did come out and talk to his girlfriend briefly but then went back inside the party solo. Before leaving, an agitated Francesca told photographers outside the club she wasn't allowed in because Rossi wasn't supposed to be seen with a girlfriend. You can watch footage from TMZ.
In the meantime, news that Magni Asgeirsson didn't win 'Rock Star: Supernova' was huge news in the rocker's Iceland home, making the front page of the country's two biggest newspapers Fréttablaðið and Morgunblaðið. Australia also reacted to the news Toby Rand wasn't the Supernova frontman. Check out reports from Gerard Wright of the Sydney Morning Herald and Peter Mitchell of Australian Associated Press. But there were no signs of interest in Dilana Robichaux in South Africa with no metion of the tattooed rocker now living in Texas from the major South African papers.
Rock Star: Supernova host Dave Navarro checked in on his blog at 6767.com on Wednesday night after the news that Lukas Rossi has been named Supernova frontman by Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted, and Gilby Clarke. "I think they made a great choice," Navarro writes. "You know, for me, it was always between Lukas and Dilana. I would have been happy with either, even though what I think is irrelevant. Here is the thing. If the band had chosen someone I didn't like, I would have been cool with that too. I mean... It's their band. I support the guys no matter what. They are, however, my friends, so I suppose it's easier to support my friends." You can read more of that posting here.
More recently, Tommy Lee commented that for him there was never any question that Lukas Rossi was the one to front the 'Rock Star' band. "I realized he was the guy for us the very first day we met him. The first time I saw him, I was, like, 'That's my boy,'" Lee tells CanWest News Service. "All my life, I've always wanted to be in a band with a singer like this. You can't teach someone to be a rock star. The way he moves ... you either have that, or you don't."
