A second Canadian has won the ROCKSTAR competition. Lukas Rossi has been crowned the new lead singer of “Supernova” which also features former Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and former Guns N’ Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke.
Upon the announcement of the winner, the new band released their official first single ITS ALL LOVE. The track is quintessential hard rock mixed with mianstream melodies, some great guitar work by Gilby and poignant lyrics. Rossi’s vocals work very well here with him striking just the right balance between edgy and emotive. Its all love is sure to be a big hit and a perfect lead into the band’s album. However, this single lacks the addictive, explosive quality of J.D. Fortune’s unforgettable Pretty Vegas. Hmm I wonder why is this so?
I am not a big fan of Lukas and I believe Dilana deserved to get the title. Dilana not only had the voice deserving enough for the title but her personality was far more than that of a rock-star. She might have spoken a bit too much of her “truth” infront of the media, but hey she’s a novice and come on, even rockstars arent perfect!! With the rock-star looks, personality and, above all, voice i’m sure Dilana would have been a better choice. The opinion that girls cant rock the crowd is not so “wise.” Hasn’t Amy Lee done a great job? and Evanescence is surely one of the bands creating storms on the music charts. Dont you think so too?
Well we all had our favourites and we wanted them to win so lets just end with the usual sincere statement; “all happens for the good.”: Hoping to see Lukas’ album real soon!! And wishing Dilana all the luck for the future. Hope she rocks and kicks butt!!!
