Supernova. That's how Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and one-time Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, name their newly formed band. Upon its early stage of forming, the musicians are said to use "Rock Star", a CBS reality show, to find a singer.
The series, slated to premiere this summer, will have guitarist Dave Navarro and actress Brooke Burns returning as hosts. And so, soon as a singer has been selected, Supernova will record an album to be released in the fall and will after that embark on a world tour in early 2007.
In a statement, Navarro promised appearances from Slash, Macy Gray, Moby and Rob Zombie during the competition.
