Rockstar Supernova: This Week's Recap*
LAist managed to stop crying for a few minutes last night (over our girl Zayra’s shocking departure last week) to tune into the latest episode of Rockstar: Supernova. So Tommy Lee, Gilby Clarke and Jason Newsted are continuing their search for a singer to front their band. Here’s what we got left:
Storm Large (yes, again, that’s the name she uses): Good singer, but a little too karaoke for our taste. She’s definitely the show’s resident drama queen. Her rendition of Aerosmith’s “Cryin’” showed us how good of a singer Stephen Tyler really is.
Toby Clark: Yummy Aussie beefcake. He put together an interesting arrangement of Clapton’s “Layla” last night – and as Tommy Lee pointed out, the chicks really dig him.
Ryan Star: The dark, brooding musician who’s piqued our interest lately. He sung an original song of his last night – a romantic ditty about doing it in the backseat of a car. The band asked why the radical improvement over the last few weeks. His answer: “I got laid.” That definitely scored points with Supernova. But he’s got to ease up on the mascara.
Patrice Pike: She also wrote the song she sang last night. We can’t really remember what it was about, but we don’t much care because she’s probably the next to go.
Magni: The ice man from Iceland performed Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” decently. He seems like a really nice family man, level-headed and well-liked by everyone – so how does that fit in with the rock’n’roll lifestyle?
And finally our two favorites:
