ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA Frontman Is Ready To Roll

Jane Stevenson of the Winnipeg Sun reports:

Toronto's Lukas Rossi says he can breathe a major sigh of relief now that he's performed the first ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA concert on New Year's Eve in Sin City.

"It's just a feeling of accomplishment," the 30-year-old singer told the Sun in a Canadian newspaper exclusive the night after ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA's North American tour launch at The Joint in the Hard Rock Cafe. "It's good to get it under your belt. It's kind of like, 'Well, we went through all this s--t, we can only go up from here,' you know what I'm saying? I think the band gave it 110%. I think we just brought it as best we could, man. And it's going to get better. This is the first show of the tour, so it's taking baby steps."

Rossi, seated on a couch in The Joint's second-floor, candle-lit dressing room of his ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA bandmates — guitarist Gilby Clarke and bassist Johnny Colt — sipped on a soda and seemed generally pleased with his opening-night performance, despite some room for improvement. For example, Rossi stopped and restarted the band's show-ending cover of THE ROLLING STONES' "Let's Spend the Night Together" because he wanted the crowd's response to be louder. What he didn't realize at the time was that his voice was being drowned out in the mix and the audience couldn't hear him.

"There's glitches here and there," Rossi said. "Hills and valleys, man, and we hit a couple of valleys (Sunday) night, but the best thing about falling down is getting up again and you've got to do it really quickly 'cause everyone's just standing there and you know especially (Sunday) night, just drunk as hell and just wanting to rock 'n' roll. All in all, it was just a f--in' blast."

Rossi said ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA, rounded out by his pal Tommy Lee of MÖTLEY CRÜE on drums, only had about two weeks of rehearsal before the New Year's Eve launch.
