I am simply here at the moment to say that Lukas DOES TOO have talent.
The studio versions of "It's All Love" and "Be Yourself and 5 Other Cliches" are up at the Rock Star: Supernova myspace...and I have to say, I was impressed. They both sound really good and I wasn't a big fan of either when performed on the show. Plus, you can actually understand what Lukas is singing!
I also wouldn't and don't feel cheated. I think for some the fix idea is due to what you said. Sour grapes I guess. For others though I think there is a legitimate distrust of shows like this. I think it's a natural side effect that comes with reality TV.
Rain -- In terms of "predetermined" and that Burnett wouldn't do that, how do you explain the Survivor preview with Lukas footage singing "Headspin"... that aired halfway through the finale? I don't dismiss that if the band truly decided at the end that one of the others were the one, that they would pick him/her, but I do think they figured they wanted Lukas all along, and needed to be convinced otherwise.

I didn't see the Survivor-Headspin promo -- did it say something about Lukas winning in it? If it didn't, then what on earth does it prove? That CBS decided they wanted to use a song with the lyric "you make my head spin" to promote a show that was generating controversy?
His voice seems to be getting lost in the music on It's All Love. But he does sound a step above what he was doing on the show. I'm impressed too. Hopefully he won't revert back to Mr. Garble for live shows and other appearances.
No, but it's crystal clear it meant that the Survivor = Lukas. And why would you promote a non-winner at all?
Really? It wasn't crystal clear that the "big twist" would make your "head spin"? Your interpretation is the only correct one when others make as much or more sense, and therefore the competition was rigged without anyone being able to benefit from it? Wow, that's amazing!
Plus, the finale was taped earlier in the day--the winner was announced; it wasn't a "Well, let's make a promo with the guy they're about to announce live as the winner."
The band has changed its name as a result of the lawsuit: http://today.reuters.com/news/articl...ent+NewsNews-2
Well, looks like the album flopped hard. It debuted at #101 and only sold about 16,000 copies. Can't say I'm surprised.
Seems like with Lord of the Rings still pretty hot people would love a rock group with a troll. Hee! If they sent me a pile of them to give away at my station I'd probably dump them in a drawer.
The album's out? I never would have known except for reading it here.
Just as funny as the album bombing (Lukas was awful) is that Newstad is no longer with the band. An amp supposedly fell on him, so he can't play during the tour -- I heard it on Chris Jericho's show on Da' Boneyard (XM Radio) a few weeks back. There was no doubt Jason was in it to boost Voivod, and nothing more. For fans of the show, like me, I was happy to have heard Phil and like his band Lennex. www.lennex.com I know that Ryan Star came to town 2 months back. I was at a charity thing with a bunch of Seattle Seahawks, and a few of the players wives were talking about how they wanted to see Ryan after watching him on Rockstar: Supernova. My wife was a fan of his too. I wonder how many albums he's sold. Any news on Toby? Doug
The last thing I heard about Toby is that he and his band, Juke Cartel (from Aus.) were in LA recording an album. I'm looking forward to hearing what they come up with. They have a myspace... www.myspace.com/jukekartel www.myspace.com/tobyrand
If that album flopped miserably, it's because there was ZERO promotion. I had no idea that anything happened, I heard nothing about it. I thought they had some February 2007 dates for some reason, but I'm not sure about that. Anyway, it's obvious that Lukas may be just a little too unique, too good, to be accepted by the masses who love mediocrity. We'll see, he might have a cult following the way such artists as Danzig and Laura Nyro did/do, and that's a good thing. Yeah, we all like money, but when it comes to music, sometimes THE MUSIC is the reward.
> it's obvious that Lukas may be just a little too unique, too good It's more obvious that they chose a poor "singer".
It could also be because it's a pretty mediocre album. INXS's Switch was superb; this one has some catchy songs but the majority is filler. There's just no stand-out "This should be a single" track on here--maybe "Be Yourself (and 5 Other Cliches)" or "Underdog," but they screwed up in not picking Toby and his fantastic "Throw it Away," which was one of the catchiest songs I've heard in recent years (and is on iTunes btw--search for Toby's band Juke Kartel).
I agree. He is unique. And who knows? Maybe he'll get a following. There's still time. He should separate from this band though.
