ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA Implodes; How To Avoid The 'Rock Star' Crash And Burn

Larry Getlen of the New York Post reports: ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA, the latest spawn of reality guru Mark Burnett's "Rock Star" franchise, had all the earmarks of a true supergroup - members from MÖTLEY CRÜE, METALLICA and GUNS N' ROSES; a high-profile personality in drummer Tommy Lee; and a predecessor in INXS, whose "Rock Star" success with lead singer, J.D. Fortune, garnered a Top 20 album and a sold-out tour.

But instead, their self-titled debut album failed to crack Billboard's Top 100, and as of this week, almost five months after tickets went on sale, good seats were still available for their shows in Worcester, Philadelphia and New York, including 11th row seats for this Wednesday's show at Radio City.
