This year, there is a new band forming from Rockstar:SuperNova made members of Motly Crue (Tommy Lee), Guns N Roses (Gilby Clark) and Metalica (Jason Newsted) and the winner of this competition. Because I was a fan of INXS and enjoyed their music and these three guys were never my favorites, I faced this show with some trepidation, I was pleasently suprised!
I don't know why but this years contestants seem to be much better quality on the whole. There are more women this year (it may just seem so... a count shows the same number) and the band openly states a woman fronting for them would be alright.
Warning, however, the language, while being within the bounds of broadcast television, is a bit on the raw side for kids. Phrases like "You kicked ____" abound.
** Excuse me while I digress but what reality show is truely reality. I have never lived on an island, been flown to a mansion with a dozen attractive women, been asked to audition for a recording contract on nationwide TV.
