Local Girl Makes Good…Maybe

Posted by on June 26 at 10:58 AM


CBS has announced that the new cast for the next season of the reality show Rockstar will include Portland’s most eccelectic, erotic export: Storm Large. She makes regular appearences in Seattle and has a weekly show in Portland. Naturally, The Mercury caught on to her first, but we’re rather fond of her too (see a recent Up & Coming I wrote about her here).

She’s a talented, obscenely charismatic performer with a beautiful, dramatic voice, but I have no doubt that CBS execs were as impressed with her beautiful, dramatic appearance as they were with her vocal talents. So what exactly is she competing for? The winner will become the lead singer for a new super group ingeniously named “Supernova” and featuring drummer Tommy Lee, former Guns ‘N Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke, and former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted. I’m no fan of reality TV, but I might be willing to endure the presence of icky judge Dave Navarro to watch some of it this time around. The premier episode airs next Wednesday, July 5th.

Does the tat on her back spell "GROCER," or something else?

Rockstar:INXS was one of the highlights of my summer last year (ok, that probably means I had a crappy summer, but still...). I don't think I'll be watching this year, though. Even the lure of a semi-local contestant can't raise my interest in this lame excuse of a "band". Poor Jason Newsted - he deserves better.

I don't know about the PDX woman, but I noticed that Patrice Pike from Austin is on the finalist list. She is an AMAZING vocalist from my hometown and I can't wait to see her knock everyone's socks off!

Would a nuclear strike on the opening episode be too much to ask for?

Gilby?!? At least Izzy had the sense to sit this one out.

Patrice Pike !

Patrice Pike !
