I ended up working at my dad's office for hours last night, but I managed to squeeze in yesterday's episode of Rockstar: Supernova before I went to bed. Let me just say that I'm getting tired of all of the contestants' original songs already. Yawn. Storm's song was my favorite, but obviously we won't be hearing that again (although they did thoughtfully point out where it could be downloaded before they booted her off the show).
So who do you want to win? Who do you think will win? I'm still holding out hope for Dilana, even though they've obviously been going out of their way to make the fans dislike her. I think the contest is between her and Lukas, and Lukas just rubs me the wrong way. I fear he'll win anyway. Word is that the band doesn't really want a female vocalist. That news doesn't come as a huge shock to me, seeing as I've spent my entire musical career responding to "vocalist needed" ads with, "Would you be willing to consider a female singer?" It's unfortunate, but it's the reality of the rock biz, even at the lowest levels.
Speaking of that, I'm actually kind of glad the show is ending so I can stop wasting so much of my Tuesday and Wednesday evenings watching TV when I should be working on my own band's stuff.
We have five songs that are almost complete, I have two more sets of lyrics to finish from the first batch of songs, and our guitarist is almost finished with his interpretation of one of the original songs from my previous band, which we'll also include on our CD. After that, we'll have a whole new batch of songs to work on that the bass player and guitarist have written. The guys are even working on some of their own lyrics for me to sing, which should be interesting.
Of course, then we reach the stage where we absolutely must choose a band name. Ugh, there's nothing more difficult than that. If you have any suggestions for a hard rock/heavy metal band name, please pass 'em along!
