Ryan Star has no regrets about 'Rock Star: Supernova' dismissal
UPI News Service, 09/03/2006
Singer Ryan Star said his dismissal from the U.S. reality TV show "Rock Star: Supernova" last week will be something for him to build his career upon.
The 28-year-old singer said his spirits were lifted when the crowd on the popular CBS show booed the judges' decision to make him the 10th contestant to leave the competition. He said he plans to release a live album soon to build on the momentum he earned while on the show, the New York Daily News reported.
"I've got no regrets. I was proud of everything I did," Star said of his time on the series, which included his well-received cover of The Who's "Baba O'Riley" last week. "It's not like I bombed."
The reality show features singers competing to become the new lead singer for Supernova -- which consists of former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, one-time Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke and Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee.
The paper said Star -- who plans to release his live album on his Web site Ryanstar.TV -- favors contestant Lukas Rossi to win the competition, because of his talent and style.
