Gilby Clarke has reportedly left Rock Star Supernova. No reason for the departure has been given, although disappointing sales, less than 56,000 in the US, are believed to have contributed to the decision.

According to front-man Lukas Rossi, the band will change their name and are currently writing for a new album.

Who f***ing cares. They were the worst band they could be. I am so embarrassed for Newsted to have even been a part of that crap.

Yeah, like Tommy Lee is going to hang around much longer. Any band that is the result of a TV-show is bound for failure.

Maybe but no-one would have cared if he wasn't in a band which features members of probably the three biggest American rock bands of all time. All of them are fantastic musicians but should stick to what they play best. I can see how Clarke and Lee gel together but I never would have imagined Newsted in a band with those two. Don't get me wrong I love Metallica (as well as Flotsam and Jetsam, Voivod and Echobrain), Motley Crue and GNR but it just seemed strange to me.

Its all bullsh** if there wasnt a big tv series no one would even no who the f*** they are. Mayb Lukas can write good songs but his voice is crap so he cant sing them. All you idiots voted for the person who most looks like a rockstar.
