    48 Hours With "Rock Star: Supernova" Winner Lukas Rossi - Shirley Halperin

    He may be a reality TV star, but twelve hours after the Rock Star: Supernova finale, reality had yet to set in for winner Lukas Rossi. "It's mind-blowing," he told us in a hangover haze while sitting poolside at new bandmate Tommy Lee's house, where he's crashing. "I'm just surprised anyone cares about a little punk from Toronto."

    So are we! But like the hundreds of thousands who tuned in to see Tommy, Gilby Clark and Jason Newsted critique a glorified karaoke contest of freaks and geeks, we too were secretly captivated by the show and its two front-runners: the deep-voiced and dreadlocked South African Dilana Robichaux, and the emotive Lukas, who impressed both the judges and viewers with his intense delivery covering songs like Radiohead's "Creep" and the Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony." Sure, he must have ravaged the local Sephora for eye shadow and glittery lipstick on a weekly basis, and maybe the whole sunglasses-at-night thing is a bit played out, but the act paid off for the twenty-nine-year-old high school drop-out. And Tommy, for one, called it early on. "As soon as I first saw him, I thought, 'That's our man.' It wasn't necessarily about finding the best singer or the right look, it was about finding the guy -- or girl -- that could front this band . . . and Lukas is that person."

    Judging by his behavior at the show's wrap party later that night, it seems Lukas has taken to his new rock star role quite naturally. Flanked on all sides by L.A.'s dimmest and drunkest, Lukas handled the ladies like he'd been negotiating groupie advances forever. To say that he liked the attention would be a major understatement. Even growing up, Lukas tells us, he didn't have pictures of his favorite bands the Cult or Smashing Pumpkins on his bedroom wall. "I wanted to be the one on the poster!"
    And now that he may have that chance, this former line-cook at Hooters isn't wasting any time. He'll soon head into an L.A. studio to lay down vocals to almost a dozen already-written songs and one or two of his originals. And after that, the Supernova tour, which kicks off in December and features Dave Navarro's Panic Channel and the ridiculously rockin' Rock Star house band (fronted by the season's four runner-up contestants) as openers.

    No doubt, it's a dream come true, but fame has its price and even on this first celebratory evening, Lukas paid it when he was accused by TMZ.com of leaving his girlfriend stranded outside of the Geisha House doors. Not cool, right? So being the stealth journos that we are, we tracked Lukas down the next night in the smoking section of the Henry Fonda Theatre where he, Dilana and finalists Tony Rand and Magni Asgeirsson came to see Supernova producer Butch Walker play with his band, the Let's-Go-Out-Tonites. Lukas's response to the item? "No comment." Tommy Lee has taught him well, indeed.

    "I'm just surprised anyone cares about a little punk from Toronto."
    So are we! But like the hundreds of thousands who tuned in to see Tommy, Gilby Clark and Jason Newsted critique a glorified karaoke contest of freaks and geeks, we too were secretly captivated by the show and its two front-runners
    Nice contradiction, Shirley. Who exactly were the "geeks" in your failed attmept to sound clever ? For someone who writes for a glorified rock magazine, why do these contestants seem "freakish" to you? Their appearances seem on par with most of the other musicians you make a living writing about.
    Sure, he must have ravaged the local Sephora for eye shadow and glittery lipstick on a weekly basis, and maybe the whole sunglasses-at-night thing is a bit played out
    I'm guessing the sunglasses weren't only for looks. The intense strobe blasts are probably blinding, especially for a singer wearing glitter around the eyes.

    Re: Lukas Rossi - Supernova

    Lukas is touring as a solo act now. I've seen him billed as "Lukas Rossi of Rockstar Supernova" in the listings for the some of the small local clubs in the area. Guess that was a very temporary gig, huh?

    Yet JD fortune is still touring in Europe with INXS. Organic or manufacture, which one is better?

    Re: Lukas Rossi - Supernova

    Rossi brought back down to earth

    Lukas Rossi will be ringing in 2008 in much more modest style than he did in 2007.

    As a dwindling number of you might recall, last New Year's Eve marked the live debut of the star-powered band Toronto native Rossi was picked to lead from a field of 14 internationally drawn contestants on the popular "reality" show Rock Star: Supernova.

    Since the original lineup featured almighty Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, ex-Guns `n' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke and former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted – replaced before touring could begin by the Black Crowes' Johnny Colt when he suffered a shoulder injury – and the show was a major hit, there was a certain smugness within the music industry that Supernova, the band, couldn't fail.

    Fail it did, though.

    While sales of the Rock Star Supernova album hit the platinum mark here in Rossi's home nation, it peaked at a relatively dismal No. 101 on Billboard's U.S. albums chart. Critics savaged the record.

    And when a Supernova tour of packed houses all over the planet (including Massey Hall) commenced last January, critics savaged the tour, too.

    "Supernova wasn't close to super." "Rock Star Supernova crashes and burns in Oakland." "Rock Star Supernova flames out on Oracle stage." "Band's reality-TV background spawns predictably soulless gig." So went the headlines, and within a few months, down went Supernova.

    Newsted was long gone. Rumours swirled that Clarke was quitting. Tommy Lee took up deejay-ing and feuding in court with the rest of Mötley Crüe. Supernova was, for all intents and purposes, over by the spring, and Rossi – previously the living embodiment of "cocky" – was forced to choke down a large amount of humble pie.

    "It takes a chunk out of you, man. I'm not gonna lie," says the 30-year-old singer from a recent Ottawa tour stop.

    "I thought it was gonna go on longer. I think my ego got blown a little out of proportion after it was all said and done, and coming back down to earth is obviously where I belong. Coming off that tour, it was like: `Where's all the glory?' But I like it where I am right now. If I have to pay my dues until I die, that's the way God wants it to be."

    And where is Rossi right now? Weaving his way across the country on a small-venue acoustic tour that brings him to Lee's Palace tonight.

    His high-powered Supernova bandmates have been replaced by keyboardist Lou Dawson, the luxury tour bus by a car steered by his wife, Kendra. Which, for Rossi – who spent years knocking around Toronto bars in Cleavage and a few other unsuccessful indie bands – is really not unfamiliar territory.

    "It's not really an adjustment," he says. "I've always been a really hard worker. In my other bands, no one did s--- for us. It's just as hard on my wife as it is on me. I failed my driver's test four times so, unfortunately, she's been having to do all the driving.

    "She basically tour-manages and handles all the crazy people and so forth that I can't. ... She's good support. We get hard on each other sometimes – it's pretty grueling, driving and playing, driving and playing, especially in the winter. I'm sick now and I have 10 shows in a row to do.

    "But the fans are waiting, man, so it's my pleasure to do it."

    Rossi's fondness for his fans does seem sincere.

    He maintains personal contact with hundreds of them through his website, The OFFICIAL WEBSITE OF LUKAS ROSSI, and some of them have become "friends for life." He hosts regular online chats and auctions off lunch dates to admirers on eBay in each town where he plays, donating the money to various charities. The last of these such occasions, he says, consisted of going out drinking and gambling with the highest bidder and was "a great time."

    Because of the TV show, he says, "people assume they know me. I guess they feel like I'm approachable. And that's cool, because I am."

    Fans will, however, have to wait a while longer for new music from Rossi.

    He has a new project, Stars Down – featuring his current tourmate Dawson and a full lineup not yet solidified – in the works and being shopped around to various labels. The album is about "half done," he says, and sticks with the heavy rock sound towards which he's always gravitated. A release within the next six months is the goal.

    As for Supernova, which has never officially announced its demise, Rossi isn't holding his breath for a comeback.

    "It actually felt like a real band. I thought it was gonna go on much longer," he says.

    "But at the end of the tour, everyone just kind of went off and started deejay-ing or whatever. I don't know what that's about, but let 'em do what they want. I'd just started to fire. I'm ready to start rockin'. I'm just getting my feet wet and I've got no time to relax. I don't have time to make pit stops. I'm not a deejay.

    "All these shows in Canada are sold out, man, and they're not there to see Tommy Lee. They're there to see me. And that's a good feeling."
