Anyone else watching Rockstar? - Page 4

post #46 of 62
I was commenting to my wife, who enjoys American Idol, on what it takes to be a good rock frontman. Singers can't rely on their voice as much, charisma, stage presence, crowd control are such important factors. Look at Jill, she had perhaps the strongest voice but unfortunately she doesn't have that extra something to be their frontman and she fell before many who had weaker voices than her.

I can think of shows I've been to with great frontmen, Metallica, Ozzy, Rob Zombie, Suicidal Tendencies, and most recently Velvet Revolver... these are singers who demand your attention on stage and are exciting just to watch to see what they do next. Scott Weiland, wow, I was amazed watching this guy perform - he's got what it takes to be a top rock frontman - everything from his voice to his eccentricity.

yeah completely agree, with good lead singers you find yourself accidentally looking at them. In both of the performances Ive caught with the contestants fronting Supernova, i find myself watching Jason Newsted, seems to have more presence on stage than both the people I saw up front.

That's funny because I also end up watching Newsted more than Clarke...

Last nite was good, all the singers were great but if there was a weaker performance I'd say it was Magni. Storm was f'ing great, I hope she doesnt get the boot because the initial voting showed her and Dilana in the bottom 2. I didnt like Lukas' original too much but he sang it well. It's gonna be a hella tough vote tonite

Yeah, I don't know how tonight will fall either...
Before the show I figured Toby and Storm would be in the bottom and one would be booted. But after the performances I thought Lukas and Dilana were in the bottom. I still think Storm will go, because I just can't see them booting Lukas or Dilana. Storm has been impressing me every week lately.
Toby, that guy for some reason seems like he could front a band like Offsping... just fun rock party music - and he's good at Killers covers.

interesting results. I thought the the bottom 3 would have been in the final 4 and Toby or Magni going home this week. alas, my hot Storm got the Tommy-turn-Jason-hawk

i wasnt all that surprised. I think its fair to say we are at a point where they are all basically good, and she was my selection a few posts back to get sent on her way this week. cute tho. I am starting to wonder if Dilana will survive. Great voice, but atrocious songwriter, and that may sting her.
post #53 of 62
I don't think Dilana has recovered from the slamming she got for "press week" awhile ago. Her performances have lacked her previous "energy" for lack of a better word.

Do you guys think Supernova has the "singer" already picked out?

yep. who? i have no clue. Maybe Lukas or Toby

I think they like the Aussie... he wrote a catchy song and I think he'll fit their image. I don't see their shtick lasting more than an album or two. I think Newstead is very cool in certain ways, you'd think he'd have more of a head after being in Metallica. Are any of the guys in Supernova real songwriters?

Newsteds songs were usually my least favorite on a Metallica album.

Clarke, I'm not too sure. As for Guns I know it was all about Slash, Izzy, and Duff. But I actually liked some of Clarkes first solo record.

Lee, I don't know what he did as far as songwriting goes.

I think this is something they'll struggle with.

I can't seem them putting out more than one album either.

this final four show isnt as good as the past couple of weeks... how are they doing it anyhow? Eliminating 2 from this show with audience voting and then having a chilli cook off tomorrow night as the finale?
post #58 of 62
Well it's over and at least the winner was on my short list.
I do think he has the strongest rock voice of the contestants and if he can just learn how to handle it a bit better he could be very good.
Interesting though, because I thought he'd come in second to Dilana.
Their performances last night were very very good, Lukas and Dilana hadn't looked better IMO.
Kind of makes me want to netflix the first INXS season.

What's up with the canuks taking the Rockstar honors

Kinda cool that we met Lukas a few weeks back....he was my "probably will win" choice, but I was rooting for Storm. She had a great attitude for the band.

yeah, i think he was the obvious choice from day 1, just looked the part. I wanted to see Toby win, but Im Australian so bias dictates that. It pretty much played out the way I thought it would, (cept Magni went out four minutes before Toby)

Watching him at the end, he did look at home there. See how they go I guess....
