SRL Today

Yesterday's show was a lot of drama, fun and great performances. This episode might have the most solid set of performances yet. There really isn't much room for criticism anymore. They are all good at this point and it is just a matter of who the public pulls for so that Supernova can make their final decision. Yeah, we covered a little more of the drama at the top of the show, but I can tell you that the panel has already moved beyond it. I am glad Dilana was able to learn a hard lesson, but in the same breath, I can't think of a lead singer worth his weight in rock, that hasn't said some really stupid shit in the press at one time or another. The same certainly goes for me and Tommy! It happens all the time, just not on prime-time network television. So, having said that... We are over it. It is back to the competition at hand. Finding these guys the best singer for their band. At this point, it is up to you to vote and decide who the final four will be. Someone is gone on Wednesday and someone is gone on the following Wednesday... Unless, of course, there is another dreaded double elimination.

Later today, I will be doing another Spread Radio Live from my house. Look for the usual indicators that I am live, such as the spreadradiolive name and "ON AIR" icon in your AIM buddy list, a post here on 6767 or a MySpace bulletin.

looking forward to the show this week - i am wavering still between dilana and lucas.. love them both!

just gotta tell ya, Dave - my boyfriend and i just got back from a weeklong vacation in cancun, and the ONLY cd we took with us was, of course, (ONe)... we listened to it every day in our room while getting ready for the day..

we sooooooooo love TPC!! when will yall announce the fall tour? hoping to see yall again in dallas!

I think that Magni should be the new lead singer for Supernova...he has a great voice, is mature, and is savy to the music world of performing and touring. A lot has been said about stage presence, well his very first performance wasn't great (much like JD last year), but since then has continued to excel in his singing and performance. I think the sound of his voice is great and in the end that's what is heard. When I listen to INXS' new cd with JD I am amazed at how great his voice is and that is what really lasts, a performace is good (how many days in a year will SN tour vs how many cd's will they sell or how many songs will be downloaded), people LISTEN to music. I saw INXS in Boston in Feb., JD had a cold in his speaking voice but his singing voice was a strong as ever and I think Magni can do the same for SN ( a very strong voice), he isn't as wild or extreme in his appearance as Dilana or Lukas, but his stage presence is great, he looks very comfortable and in control (I mean SN already has Tommy for the extreme looks thing)...isn't it about the music? Magni is able to play a lot of instruments, writes songs, and is a lead singer with a band, (very talented). So instead of just watching the show, everyone needs to LISTEN to the show!!!

Thanks for being so true and real Dave!

After watching the webisode, I can see why there was some more discussion about it. Absolutely time to move on though. Lukas and Dilana are still my favorites. It will be interesting to see the performances this week ... I can't wait!

Posted by: MJ at August 28, 2006 11:17 AM

Morning Dave and 67 Fam,

I can't wait to see the show tomorrow night. Now that all the 'crappy' ones are gone, it's really nuts to watch. I flip flop every week about who should be the final three...Lukas and Dilana are always there, but Ryan and Magni are duking it out for that final spot. I can't even believe Im saying that. I thought Ryan was a goner soooo long ago...good for him.

Sadly, I can't listen to SRL today. I'm at school all day long, but if you put the new ones in rotation then I can hear them at work as always. I'm sure you've been agonizing all morning about if I'll be listening or not, Dave, and what you can do to accommodate my schedule..so there you go! hahahaha...

Have a great day everyone.
Love, Amber :)

Hey DN> Mahvelous Monday! Got the day off for my older sons 1st day of school, hanging here with my younger one. Thanx so much for the SRL and the daily posts and being so good to us. Also, did I mention you have really cool fanz? Luv ya, Db

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 11:19 AM

Dave I'm hoping the SRL today is 3 pm PST (6 EST)! So I can listen when I get home from work!
SRL is not cubical friendly ;-)

The church lady who sits behind me would probably crap her pants.

Posted by: Robin (Peebs) at August 28, 2006 11:20 AM

Dave...all the spoilers said that Jason went off the deep end a little...I know it at least most of it will get edited out, but as a long time Sweet Jason (the Jasonizer) fan, I WANT to see him GO OFF on someone!! Are they gonna perserve his image and give us something to go "ahhhh,...Sweet Jason" again, or let us see something new? (hint:as executive producer you could make that happen?)
I happen to love double eliminations...and am hoping to see it again...(I'm just afraid it will be Magni)..I'll be voting my fingers off for the Iceman.
P.S...I had a VERY disturbing dream about you... congrats dude..it takes alot to do that to me!

Posted by: Draven at August 28, 2006 11:22 AM

Hey Dave, back again. Still lovin' the show yesterday. I watched the webisode about 2:00 am, made a comment here, then tried to go to sleep. I couldn't though.

I was being haunted by the memory of Michael Hutchence (problems with the press) and Kurt Cobain, also Layne Staley.

Dilana scares me in that way. The way she headbutted the mic at the end, and then look up smiling, was very intense and had a very dramatic effect, but IT'S KINDA DISTURBING. I couldn't get that image out of my head, and not in a good way.

Do you believe in premonitions?? I woke up like Alison Dubois with this shit. (ref: The Medium NBC, Mondays)

Posted by: Niki at August 28, 2006 11:31 AM


Would you please spin some Bulltes and Octane on SRL? Ah, hell, yeah! Bring it, Boi! Thanks, man.

Posted by: Bri@n at August 28, 2006 11:32 AM

What will be done about Dilana!? Taking a tantrum and almost injuring someone.. hmmm. Magni handled it very well and never said a bad word about her although she made him bleed. But others took an opportunity and put in some comments. He does show he has character. Hopefully having good character overcomes being controversial. In this game, who knows?

Posted by: Julia at August 28, 2006 11:35 AM

Hey Dave!

Thanks for the update. I hear you with how everyone makes mistakes, etc.... but this is a competition and the contestants should be trying to impress - they are not perfect - but to go to far the opposite way isn't good either.

I think when you are an established star, temper tantrums and the slip of the tongue can be overlooked. However, when you are not established, you should be walking on broken glass - think things through.... We all have our bad times - most of us do not put our lives out there in the public for the flaws to be picked apart.....

Love ya Dave! So are you going to play with them or what?


Posted by: Angel at August 28, 2006 11:39 AM

I'd love to hear Missing Persons on SRL
especially "What are Words For" or "Walking in L.A."... I totally love that band!!!

Posted by: Savvy at August 28, 2006 11:41 AM

and I would love to hear what people think about...

in the webisode...

Dilana throwing a glass at the pavement right in front of someone??!?!?!?!!?
and it blowbacking onto Magni
she could have taken Magni's eye out.
luckily she didn't!

Posted by: Savvy at August 28, 2006 11:44 AM

what did dilana say?

Posted by: Marivic at August 28, 2006 11:48 AM

Hey Baby! Thank you for doing more spread radio its the shit! I cant wait! I wish I didnt have to work tonight but I will listen at work. Hopefully with 5 nurses I should only have 3 patients so I can probably sit at the computer here and there for a few minutes. Thank god nights arent as crazy as the days. Also cant wait to see drama and more great preformances! Somehow Mr. Navarro you always get caught up in the most interesting of events! Love it! Much Love to you hun! Also Love to the fam of 67ers!

Posted by: Daves(ONe)Brooke at August 28, 2006 11:50 AM

You are so adorable! What a great way to start the day - (Canada AM aired the interview with you and SI this morning). I hope TPC comes to TO and plays some fabulous small venue for us!

Posted by: K at August 28, 2006 11:54 AM

Okay, quoting meself to clarify:
"Do you believe in premonitions?? I woke up like Alison Dubois with this shit. (ref: The Medium NBC, Mondays)"

No, I don't watch a lot of TV. But I have been having premontions just about as long as I can remember. I've learned to listen to them. I don't know where they come from but most of the time they're true. When I'm in this place that gives me these feelings, I'm kinda scared.

This may ruin my credibility here, but I think you and some of the others here may be open to this stuff. I think....

Swear, I'm a mom, a wife and a business owner. I'm a legitimate, contributing member of society. I have a sense of humor... :-D, but I also have freaky premonitions. Sometimes they kinda scare my friends, but they learned that just comes with the pkg of me. I usually edit out anything that may upset them.

Posted by: Niki at August 28, 2006 12:02 PM

Dave,good think you dont visit the rockers at the mansion.It could have been you getting hit with the glass.Then you would of had to kick some ass.I know i would like to visit storm in the mansion.She is so fuckin hot.If she doesnt get this gig,steer her to a porn producer,ill bet she would be awesome in the porn industry.You have the connections so hook her and me up.Peace from new mexico

Posted by: C at August 28, 2006 12:06 PM

Marivic, Dilana started crying at the table. Then she went to the bathroom. Next thing, she was sitting with Lukas on the patio. Magni came into the picture and she seen some cameras on her and threw the glass she was drinking with. The glass hit Magni in the head and he was bleeding. He was ok- Dilana was crying in Storms arms when the webisode ended.

IMHO=behavior like that when you injure another person is inexcusable. Way to go Dilana-KARMA BABY--YOOU LOST!

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 12:06 PM

Hi Dave,
Again, good work on the show. Panic Channel sounds awesome by the way. Good stuff.

Just wondering... Dilana seems to be a stellar cover song act. You probably didn't care to see the one reality show where original songwriting abilities were displayed. Lukas killed it; Patrice and Josh too; Dilana wrote the cheesiest lyrics with the most elementary melody in the History of Song. Ask Supernova about it. She gets the upper hand at the performances because she's singing songs she's done over and over again, while people like Lukas and Ryan have never sang a cover song at all with their bands (ok Ryan has 2 songs he sings). Mother Mother may have been the best in two seasons, but when Dilana has performed it hundreds of times, for years already, wouldn't she be expected to "kill" it? Most of the songs Dilana has sung are part of her regular repertoire in Texas, she didn't have 2 days to learn them like everyone else. When she sang an unknown and relatively unrehearsed song with Supernova, she really wasn't doing much to captivate and engage the audience, was she? Watch again if you can.

If Supernova is looking for a great cover song artist, why did they audition so many hard-working and talented songwriters whose only lack of musical experience is the singing of cover tunes? Wouldn't those obviously be at a disadvantage come performance time when having to audition before or after a cover song artist who has no other credible rock history? It's disconcerting at the very least. Maybe this should be acknowledged on the show. It's no wonder she's had no negative feedback, she's been singing these songs and perfected them for years! Maybe this audition should lose the song selections and go with originals only. Then Supernova will see exactly who might be representing them.

*Rant officially over* OK bye Dave.

Posted by: Georgie Girl at August 28, 2006 12:09 PM

Hello Dave - Enjoy Spread Radio Live...love the diversity...keep it up.

I admire Dilana's singing and performing abilities, but if Supernova hires her, your performance comments to the rockers (whenever you though they messed up) were a total waste of your time. If she is hired, it'll say to me--and the rest of the world, I think--that it doesn't really matter how you act or what you say or do, and that she was humiliated not for the contest/audition itself but to entice viewers.


Posted by: chart at August 28, 2006 12:11 PM

I find some of the stuff about the smoke & light show disturbing.. why is dil getting special treatment w/ her performance? Is there going to be soundtracks of applause added to her performance? We are checking to see.

Here is the spoiler from someone at the show:
Dilana sang her heart out, but I didn’t feel it. I wouldn’t think that I would be the type to be influenced by Mark Burnett, but after seeing the reality show highlights, I just couldn’t warm up to her again. JYM seemed to feel that the audience was into it by the end of the song, and maybe it was just me, but it didn’t seem to me that the audience ever got into that performance. It was eery how the show gave only Dilana a light show and smoke, and it felt like they were selling her to me. After her performance she stood there soaking up the applause like Lukas and Toby had done, but Lukas and Toby’s audience reactions were huge. The reaction after Dilana didn’t seem to justify her bowing like that for so long and I wonder if they will fill it in with soundtracks of applause. Damn, it is frustrating to know that I can be manipulated like that by a reality show producer, but it is what it is.

Posted by: superfan at August 28, 2006 12:17 PM

Hello Dave -- one other thing... It irks me that somebody at MBP didn't do their homework. It would have taken very little time to discover that at least one rocker had a huuuuge edge in doing their song. I'm refering to the singer or singers that are known (reference msn's website for this info) to have successfully performed their viewer's choice song quite frequently in their prior career.

I know life is unfair, but this was just ridiculous given the efforts to make viewers think the show challenges all the rockers equally. MBP has no one to blame but themselves if some viewers suspect a bias towards certain performers. It's just sheer laziness and incompetence on their part.

Posted by: chart at August 28, 2006 12:20 PM

I found this comment from the MSN site...
If the glass was thrown by a man, say Ryan, Lukas, etc.., there would be a huge outburst from viewers, and it would be an automatic expulsion. CBS or SN would not have tolerated it, regardless whether it was an accident or not. The fact that almost everybody seems to be minimizing what happened trully appaled me. Is it because Dilana is a girl? Women are fighting for equality but when things like this happens, we seem to treat women differently.
PS - I am a female.
Here is the link Dave. Your thought?

Posted by: Vanessa at August 28, 2006 12:21 PM

So you said dils performance was the best LOL of two seasons. Then WHY didnt even one of the spoiler crew say hers was the best of the that show. hmmmm back peddling maybe...that stinks of shit
Here is a lukas review:

Lukas - Lithium - Nirvana

Holy. Fucking. Shitballs. I can't even find the words to tell you how freaking GREAT GREAT GREAT this was. I'm trying to be specific so that you don't think I'm just some squeeing fan girl...oh, too late? You already think that? Well then, SQUEEEEEEEE!!!!! Lukas kills it!!! He COMPLETELY rearranges the song. It bares no resemblance to Dilana's version, or to Nirvana's for that matter! He wore a long white fitted coat, lots of chains and crucifixes and skulls, and its his best look yet. CLEAR vocals, NO back turning, he WORKS THE STAGE while FACING the audience the entire time...and gives the best performance I've seen on Rockstar this season. I'm completely in love, and this performance made up for all the iffy ones. SN are in complete awe. Dave tries to psych Lukas out with..."So why did you think you could change up Nirvana??" Wait for it...."Because that was fucking AWESOME dude!" TLee was captivated! Gilby thought it was the BEST he's ever seen Lukas. Jason: thought Lukas was innovative and loved the arrangement. The audience didn't stop screaming for Lukas for a full minute after he was done singing. I wanted to cry for whoever had to follow THAT.

Posted by: superfan at August 28, 2006 12:25 PM

another spoiler about lukas. Everyone seems to think he had the best performance of the night/ season... But you just so happen to say dilanas is the best of 2 seasons.. what a fucking joke you have become.

********* Even though I will admit when Lukas was less than stellar, he EFFIN NAILED THIS ONE! I can not compete with the spoiler crew so I will just GIVE MY OPINION. THE BEST performance of this season! VOCALS, STAGE DYNAMICS, CROWD INTERACTION.

Posted by: superfan at August 28, 2006 12:30 PM

To me its not about what Dilana said in the press......everyone makes mistakes. My issue is her lack of loyalty, respect and kindness to the people she calls friends in the house. This is a true preview of how Dilana would treat Supernova if she joined their band.

Posted by: lori at August 28, 2006 12:30 PM

Time for you to put on your executive producer hat and once and for all let the gullible few that have been fooled by the smoke up the ass routine in on the secret. Let Jason's comments be shown. You're not just fucking with a contestant, you're fucking with someone's potential livelihood. If that's your thing, then spread the wealth. Still loving TPC but really hate what you guys are doing to a great female rocker. Plain and simple, it sucks!

Posted by: Topcat at August 28, 2006 12:35 PM

DAVE this spoiler is what you did after dils performance.. question WHY WOULD YOU HAVE TO "URGE" A BIGGER OVATION?????

spoiler about dil:
Dave is on his feet at the end, urging the crowd on to an even bigger ovation. He then says this may be his favorite performance in 2 seasons of Rock Star and that there was "real rage" in the song.

Posted by: superfan at August 28, 2006 12:38 PM

Topcat, you did it, OWN up to it!

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 12:38 PM

Even drummers can say insensitive mean comments, and I don't mean T.Lee. He is surprisingly adorable. I get it Pammy. I am positive M. is really nice, too.

Posted by: Tina Paid at August 28, 2006 12:40 PM

I sure hope mr executive producer doesnt use the performance show to infuence the vote. Hopefully it doesnt become a Dilana pity party. She acts like such a victim. Give us a break.

Posted by: kailee at August 28, 2006 12:41 PM

Now I am really looking forward to the show this week! I think a dreaded double elimination could be kinda fun.

Posted by: meribella at August 28, 2006 12:45 PM

Everyone is on Dilana's back....like Dave said...it's over, let's move beyond it folks!

Posted by: kinsykitty at August 28, 2006 12:51 PM

Afternoon Dave. :-) I’ve had my say, elsewhere, about the latest ’reality’ episode. So, I’ll leave the ‘drama llamas’ outside on my lawn contentedly chewing grass, where they belong, instead of here on your blog. ;-) I haven’t seen the latest performances on the show, yet, so I can’t comment on those—heard everyone really ‘brought it,’ though. :-) Yeah, the show needs to get down to the music/performances, the final votes and “the boys’? ultimate choice for who they believe is right for SN. As for saying/doing phenomenally unwise things, I’m not chucking rocks. I’ve done my share and had to make some chagrined and heartfelt apologies. LOL I figure if we’ve all survived to this point, we’re doing something right. ;-) Ah, good, thanks for spoiling us with so many SRL webcasts lately. :-) Hope you have a lovely day and I’m looking forward to seeing the performance show of “RS:SN.? The gloves are off and there’s no time left to hold back. It’s time for these talented souls to blow the crowd away and show us everything they’ve got. :-) Aha… I just heard the distinctive trumpet intro of “Goody Two Shoes? come on SRL. Fun stuff. ;-)

Hey superfan...

A ???

"DAVE this spoiler is what you did after dils performance.. question WHY WOULD YOU HAVE TO "URGE" A BIGGER OVATION?????
spoiler about dil:
Dave is on his feet at the end, urging the crowd on to an even bigger ovation. He then says this may be his favorite performance in 2 seasons of Rock Star and that there was "real rage" in the song."

Did it seem like it was done because Lukas had a natural non-requested very long and loud applause!
I read he got the LONGEST and LOUDEST applause from ANY taping 2 fans have been to.

I'm just curious. I asked them to in the RS:SN LJ community.

Posted by: Savvy at August 28, 2006 12:57 PM

Unfortunately, the horse is already outta the barn as they say. I think the damage is done, not only to Dilana but also to the others as the show's focus has been completely undermined by this questionable inclusion by the producers/editors.

I know that Ddrama makes tv, soap operas are a testament to that. Therein may lie the reasoning for that inclusion.

Nevertheless, I somehow wish Dilana could have stood up for herself and simply walked. Fuck you then, and left SN to have to deal with remnants.

That act would have been an appropriate reaction to the manner in which she was dealt and would have stamped the show and the group with an unshakeable 'bad taste'. Many arrogant, egotsitcal artist have done just that...so...if the shoe fit...why not play the game and wear it?

No doubt contractual obligations and threat of lawsuits prohibit such a move, but it would have been an fitting and interesting move considering the circumstances.

I think Dilana would have established a incredible level of respect for standing up for herself amidst the hypocrisy and the subsequent drama of that move, probably giving her enough inertia to launch her solo career to eclipse anything SN might even have brought her.

Hope this doesn't seem to sharp or negative (not my intent) I'm not a hardcore Dilana fan, but the whole thing really seemed childish in realization and it could have blown up in the producers faces.

SN not having the ability to judge someone who frankly, may have even more talent than they themselves posess, would be a just dessert.

SN needs a singer, these singers do not necessarily need SN, certainly that much is obvious by now. Just cuz SN has history, cash and network doesn't negate what they really need...hunger, collection ambition independent of renumeration and somekind of unique identifiable quality as a 'band'...without their vocalist, they're faceless and generic to my ears still. Although Lee, is an un mistakeable force in performance, G. And J. don't seem to exhibit that same 'it'.

All the best to everyone


Posted by: BGP at August 28, 2006 12:58 PM

Dave, sorry, but to "move on" it needs to be apparent that everyone is ABLE to move on, and that usually only occurs when someone has TRULY learned from their mistakes and has then taken responsibliity for their actions. Nothing in what we saw shows that Dilana is contrite or feels remorse over what she actually DID. No attempts to make ammends, only excuses. In the show, she really only seems to be freaked over what was DONE to HER! And doesn't see that NONE of it would have happened if she hadn't set all these things in motion. This is just all kinds of wrong. People make mistakes, sure, but if you don't truly learn from them and understand why they happened, they are destined to be repeated, and karma always wins in the end.

If anything, the hamsters should all be commended for their display of compassion and generosity towards her, considering they were the ones wronged, not Dilana.

And seriously, Dilana gets a free ride through the entire season, and she completely flips out when she finally gets a spanking? It's making Jill look like a model of decorum at this point.

Posted by: topcat at August 28, 2006 01:02 PM


I have lurked here from time to time but just got some information I thought I would share. Take this for what it's worth.

I have a friend in the industry who works in production and has ties to the show. He tells me that Supernova has pretty much made up their mind as to who they want, and they already know how the final episode will play out. He doesnt know all of the rockers that will make it to the final episode, but Lukas and Dilana will be there.

It will play out like this:

After seeing the performances, they will narrow it down to those 2. They will tell them that both are great performers, and that it all comes down to showmanship and consistancy onstage, which both have pretty much had. They will tell Lukas that hes creative, a great performer, and very consistant. They will tell Dilana that she is also a great performer, commands the stage well and has no fear on stage when it comes to changing up her style to fit the song, which she does very well. They also tell them that they both have a bright future beyond Supernova.

In the end they will say that according to the fans voting, either would be a great choice but they have to pick someone who will make them stand out against the crowd of other bands out there right now, and that there is only one of those two that can do that effectively. They also say it was not an easy choice, but in the end they all agreed on who to pick to front the band..

Dilana is your winner, and Lukas get offered the opening gig on their tour.

Like I said, take it for what it's worth. This is supposedly first hand inside information, but sometimes inside info is wrong. I cannot mention any names because I was sworn to secrecy (my fingers were crossed during the phone conversation).

Posted by: joel at August 28, 2006 01:05 PM

Hey Dave - did you know that Janet Charlton is claiming to know who wins the show & posted it on her website yesterday? There is a link to it on the Seriously? OMG? WTF? website, which I read because not only do they post your blog, but I've found they post RS related items as well.

Posted by: Cheryl at August 28, 2006 01:10 PM

It's not that Stevie-Nicks-in-black said stupid things to the media that's still bugging people... she was two-faced with her "friends" and copped a completely obnoxious attitude.

And it doesn't seem that she learned a lesson at all. Her apology was half-assed, and she said this was the worst thing that has ever "happened" to her. Maybe people would respect her more if she tried being a grown up and taking responsibility for what she did... not what "happened" to her.

It's great that you called her on it last week, but now everyone wants to minimize/ignore what happened after you called her on it, make excuses for her, and move on. OK, whatever... moving on to another TV show now. Not too interested in this one anymore.

Posted by: not a rock star at August 28, 2006 01:12 PM

I do believe that is why dave tried to get more applause for dilana. Dont understand the A???, but I think you agree with me on everything. I heard Lukas' applause was long and loud. Cant wait to see his performance.

Posted by: superfan at August 28, 2006 01:14 PM

I heard SN had to pick a female singer to stick out? They have to pick someone who will make them stand out against the crowd of other bands out there right now. Dave tell me it's not so!!!!

Posted by: Teamwork at August 28, 2006 01:15 PM

I am excited to see how this week turns out. I think that Dilana will have some back lash from her actions last week, but she will survive a while longer. I am not sure who I think will win, but it is nice to be along for the ride. So sorry that it will end so soon! I hope that TPC will announce their tour dates very soon. A new SRL!........Hooray, that makes my birthday even better!

Love to all........

Posted by: Savvy at August 28, 2006 01:17 PM

Again, in Dilana's defense, we all make mistakes!!!! I beleive she learned a hard lesson and will come out a better person as a result. Bottom line: no matter what we think, it is all up to SN. Not me, not anyone else and certainly not Dave's. So enough said. Get off Dave's case when things don't go the way U want. U refers to all who take offense when voting leaves you faced with your favorite going home. Who will it be this week? May the best contestant win!! Have a great day Dave.

Posted by: mary at August 28, 2006 01:26 PM

Topcat, Dilana made a mistake she needs to own up to it. I am so glad I can make a statement back to you, all the while be mature about it. You evidently lack those skills. Have a great day!

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 01:30 PM

Topcat, I said, Dilana makes a mistake, she owns up to it. I am so proud of myself that I can make a reply to your insults to me in a mature manner. You, evidently lack those skills. Have a great day Topcat :)

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 01:32 PM

For all you asshats that believe they would tell ANYONE their choice - if indeed they had made one - they have been in the business far too long to do some stupid shit like that ahead of time. They get something called money for these shows, and the more people that watch the better for them on their tour - especially since they are preselling tickets already. Some of the more realistic people out there are taking a cautionary approach and waiting to see before they buy. Instead we are saving our money right now for when TPC hits town in case our favorite doesn't get it.

Hey All,

I read in earlier posts that Jason was going off on someone. I wish we could see the uncut comments. Can anyone fill me in on what he was ranting about?


Posted by: gw at August 28, 2006 01:38 PM

I really think that the lady Janet posted "a SN winner" to get talked about and have people come to her site... she probably chose Lukas because he's a high probability... then if she's correct she'll be applauded for it... and if she's incorrect she can just delete the entry...

Posted by: Savvy at August 28, 2006 01:45 PM

Topcat, you did it, OWN up to it!
This grammatically incorrect statement does not make sense, ie reason for meds response. What you should have said was, if Dilana did this or that, then she should own up to it. Instead it came out that I had done something - own it - wtf does that mean. By the way, I thought she did own up to it on last show. Bon soir and je vous vennai le matin.

Posted by: topcat at August 28, 2006 01:51 PM


Thanks for reading the fans posts and giving us the opportunity to vent. And congratulations on Panic Channel.

I can understand why SN released tix while the show was still airing, but what kind of people buy concert tickets not knowing what songs are going to be performed and who is going to be the lead singer? The first 2 songs were NOT great! The first one I would desribe as insipid and the 2nd song was slightly better, but nothing I would buy tour tickets to see.

I think that the show is great to be making rock music more accessible to the American public, but I would much rather hear Ryan, Lukas or Storm perform original material with the house band accompanying them, than SN performing some inane song.

Diladrama is the best pick for SN. She looks about their age and can sing that eighties stuff really well.

Topcat, who pissed in your cheerios today? Hope your attitude changes????

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 01:53 PM

Savvy: I agree with you...besides, how would ANYONE know for sure who wins since they tape the show on the Sun.'s and Mon.'s before the Tues.'s & Wed.'s they air?

Posted by: Cheryl at August 28, 2006 01:59 PM

How dare u talk that way 2 Danni! Topshit, u suck. And btw, asshat sounds retarded, u asshole. peace.

Posted by: Bird Vaczine at August 28, 2006 01:59 PM

Topcat, Danni, CUT THE KINDERGARTEN ACT.Show some respect for Daves website

Hey Dave,
Thanx for letting us read your thoughts, we might not agree with them but the maturer part of us respects them!

Thanx for getting my back!:)

Posted by: Danni at August 28, 2006 02:09 PM

Hey Dave, thanks again for writing.

Hopefully tonights 'reality' show (I'm in Canada) won't show any more attacks on Dilana. She was called out publically and in a very lengthy and mortifying manner on what she did. She owned up to it, she apologized and hopefully learned from the workshop. Time to move on.

Hopefully as the Executive Producer you didn't allow her to be further crucified on the so-called 'reality' portion of the show. To do so would just be pointlessly cruel and sadistic.

If it's not you who makes these decisions, then who does? I don't watch any reality shows other than this, so I don't really know how it works.

For me, I'd far rather the emphasis be put on the performance on stage. I can't imagine how stressful it must be to be under one roof with all the wonderful creative types that are trying out for this gig, not to mention cameras on you 24/7, and I hope the viewers keep that in mind.

I think everyone's that left has a strong talent, so let's treat ALL of them with respect, no matter who wins.

Posted by: Fiona at August 28, 2006 02:09 PM

I had a hard time watching the Webisode this week because only in this great country of U.S.A. can someone screw up so badly, then throw the most immature hissy fit of all time -- complete with nearly blinding someone and jacking up their head -- and then less than 24 hours later, after being painted as the poor, poor, pitiful victim, declare "I'm BACK!" and be applauded as a champion. WHAT?!?! If she had just apologized, even that crappy fake audience-induced one, and moved on, I could have moved on. But that, that was ridiculous (and not in the new bad-is-good way).

Magni, Lukas, Toby, Storm, even Ryan, all have CLASS, something that should be important to Supernova from what they've shown they're looking for. Dilana has zero class.

Magni and the House Band, make it happen!!! Toby Rand and Supernova. Lukas and Storm need their own bands to lead -- they're too good at that. Ryan needs a piano and a casino lounge. If he doesn't stop squinting, I'm gonna change the channel when he sings.

For all the people seeing the light about Dilana, just realize that you learned your lesson, you won't be forgetting, and you won't give your heart out again without suspecting. :)

Posted by: JewlCanadainGirl at August 28, 2006 02:30 PM

A couple of questions for everyone still unhappy with the Divana drama...

If Dilana hadn't gotten the tongue bath all season, would her 2 week melt down have pissed you off as much? How about if the the Powers that Be hadn't forgiven her and said "Move Along Citizens, Nothing To See Here." Instead they'd said "Dilana, that was very dissapointing. It doesn't reflect well on you and we'll remember it when it comes time to choose." Would you still be just as offended by her actions?

And second - I can imagine any of the remaining singers opening for SN - except Divana. Sure, I can imagine her as SN's singer. But I can't picture here taking the gig opening for them. Anyone agree?

Posted by: Svolich at August 28, 2006 02:37 PM

The spoilers from the taping say that Jason was livid about the way Dilana was portrayed. I'm not sure how any amount of brilliant editing could have faked the childish, temper tantrum-like, glass throwing, head bleeding incident. I'm wondering if that piece of glass had flown into Magni's eye, as it very easily could have done, would Jason still be considering Dilana’s portrayal bullshit?

Yes, she made a huge mistake last week, and it should have been dropped this week. But, in the meantime she made another, potentially tragic mistake. When exactly is enough enough?

Posted by: Debbiedoo at August 28, 2006 02:48 PM

Hey Sexy~
I love listening to you speak and reading what you write...you are so well spoken/versed!!!

It was great to hear the toronto DJ excited about TPC!!! You and Steve at the brass rail...I can remember I used to wish for you to walk into Mitchel Brother's O'farrell Theater during one of my shifts (glad to be retired from that industry). Anyhow, glad you boys had a blast...is toronto as beautiful as people say?

looking forward to spread and even more...The Tour!!!


Posted by: Chrissy at August 28, 2006 02:52 PM

Spoiler on Lukas's voice last night;
Vocally - spot on, no voice constriction at all. His voice was loud and clear. It worked well with the heavy rock arrangement. He was very energetic on stage. He didn't turn away from the audience...he moved around the stage alot. Not in the "rebel" way but fast moving, he had us all reacting to it. The audience was pumped, singing, pogoing..like a rock concert. I hope this comes off on TV, they tend to edit the audience sound sometimes.

SN and Dave were all positive. Jason stood up at the end. Dave loved the arrangement. He said Lukas has the ability to take any song and bring it up to date no matter what era its in. Not sure which one said it but one did " His best performance to date!"

Posted by: Angela at August 28, 2006 03:01 PM

One more, on Lukas's voice;
"About the performance, it was extremely energetic and he had the clear Cleavage voice and totally rearranged the song."
Dilana's reviews speaks of her changed voice lately as well. From what I see, both Dilana and Lukas have both been changing their voices recently, coincidentally back to the way they both sounded a few years back. The low, raspy voices seem to have been cultivated by the both of them but are obviously on the way out.

Posted by: Angela at August 28, 2006 03:06 PM

wow, there were just too many "both"s in that post, sorry, should have reread

Posted by: Angela at August 28, 2006 03:07 PM

Hey Dave,

I've heard the performances on Sunday night were amazing. Looking forward to Tuesday night's show.

As for Dilana, this recent meltdown is difficult to ignore. I think SN need to take this very seriously.

First, I want to say that I really respect the way the other 5 Rockers have handled themselves. I was so impressed with the way they talked it through at the dinner table. Confronting people is always difficult and they approached Dilana with such maturity and class. They didn't attack her, they just said how they felt. Even Dilana handled herself so well at the dinner table. She would have redeemed herself if she had just left it at that.

Unfortunately for her she didn't. To throw a fit like that where someone else gets hurt, is way out of line. All I heard out of her mouth was how this horrible thing happened to HER. She hasn't learned her lesson.

Another observation, if she didn't want the camera in her face for her crying spell, then why go and sit by the pool? She should have gone to her room or locked herself in the bathroom. In my opinion, she wanted the cameras and the other Rockers to see her because she was playing the pity card.

Dilana received no criticism until the media clinic incident. If she had, I think we would have seen this behaviour much earlier on in the show. I really question whether she can handle the pressure. How will she react if she is criticized by the media or SN for that fact? Its only going to get worse. You said it yourself, they need to grow thick skin. Dilana needs a full body armour.

What's interesting is that Jason said that he was watching how the Rockers behaved off the stage because their negative behaviour reflects negatively on the band. If he truly feels this way, then he can't ignore Dilana's fit and her back stabbing. I really don't think SN wants to deal with this kind of sh*t while on tour.

If they choose Dilana, I will be dumbfounded and really disappointed.

Posted by: Beth at August 28, 2006 03:09 PM

Dave, I'm sorry to say this because I like how open you are here, but the SuperEgo's sure seem really disingenous in how they deal with Storm on the show. I don't care if she wins, frankly I hope she doesn't get saddled with this. And I don't care if SN doesn't want her, but just say so. For Gilby to say crap like he thought Jill's version of Evanescence was more memorable makes it clear they planned ahead of time to bash her (just like with "I Will Survive") because they want her to be bottom 3. With all SN's steering it's become clear this isn't a competition, which is fine, but don't pretend it is.

Posted by: Howie at August 28, 2006 03:15 PM

Dave, I think I'm ready to "move on" from the Dilana debacle. She made a mistake, and she appears to be suffering the consequences. I think she's done serious damage to her chances of winning this gig. The damage is done so there's no use grinding her face in it anymore or for the other rockers to gloat about it. I'm glad to hear that Lukas and the others have taken a mature attitude towards it and are ready to move forward. Doesn't mean anyone has to forget, just no need to harp on it anymore.

Lukas is all kinds of right for Supernova. I get excited thinking about him fronting the band!!

The only rockers I see having a real boost to their solo careers after this gig are Ryan and Zayra. Ryan will do well and Zayra will take over the world.

Posted by: Elizabeth at August 28, 2006 03:40 PM

Haha, What I find funny is the people talking about listening to SRL, hoping its on at a certain time to catch it after work etc...
I am in the UK...and I listen via the SRL site, and its usually about 1am!!

needless to say im up at that time anyway and it cures boredom listening to Dave...

Luv Liz X x X

Dearest Dave,
More SRL?!? You do love us!

Posted by: Nic at August 28, 2006 03:42 PM

Another spoiler comment;
"Lukas - Killed it. Best of the night imo. Dave said it was 'awesome, incredible, original, new, unique.' T. Lee said he's 'a firm believer in letting the music do the talking, and that shit was talking!' Gilby asked Lukas how he rated that performance and Lukas said he had a 'good fucking time.' Gilby thought it was his best performance so far. Jason said Lukas is always innovative and that performance was 'fucking dynamite."
Doesn't that sound just like what these guys need, a little innovation!

Posted by: Angela at August 28, 2006 03:56 PM

OMG!!! There is no way thats her.

Posted by: greengrvy at August 28, 2006 04:27 PM

Hey Dave,

Yeah so everyone messes up but people like Dilana are the reason why rock musicians get a bad rap all the time.I don't care who Supernova chooses in the end because they're all very talented but just keep in mind that if Supernova wants to blow up the rock scene that they should also consider keeping drama to a new low.

Posted by: Sammy at August 28, 2006 04:31 PM

Storm in porn? No way thats not her!

Dave,Loved the Dilana Bashing,come on ,dont put the fire out yet.Or have the Panic Channel open tge next show for Supernova.Like a real gig.

Posted by: toni at August 28, 2006 04:36 PM

I would just like to see Dilana do a song that challenges her for a change and PROVES that she can do more than what she's BEEN doing for freaking YEARS! After all, isn't she the one that pushed Lukas to do Creep because in her opinion, if he couldn't do it he shouldn't even be in the competition? Instead you all offer wild card choices that challenge ALL the others but poor poor "mama" D gets what, a song that she actually showcases on her own website. Give me a break.

There is such a thing as at least APPEARING to be fair.

Posted by: Aeolyn at August 28, 2006 04:41 PM

After doing a little net detective work (about 10 seconds worth) I found the wikepedia entry for the Adult Video News' Best New Starlet of 2004. Her stage name is Stormy Daniels and she does bear a passing resemblance to Storm L.

Here is the link:

Posted by: Savvy at August 28, 2006 04:42 PM

Hi Dave,

I think that we should let go of this whole spectacle with Dilana, but we shouldn't forget. I don't believe with that behavior that she should get any type of reward and everyone going well "I've been through that too" like it's no big deal because it is. I doubt that Supernova will think it's no big deal if she fronts the band and pulls stunts like that (there is a 99% chance that she will). Does Supernova want to be just another rockband with a "dysfunctional" lead singer?? I don't think so.

I guess that COULD be her, if she's had some implants. This IS her and the other link that shows her pictorial book(it had a few preview shots) that she WAS selling isn't working anymore. http://www.kg-photography.com/musicians-1_1.html

Posted by: Aeolyn at August 28, 2006 04:52 PM

I am confused is this the SRL from Saturday? When I first turned it on it said 1 hour into the show and Dave had to answer the door or something. When I came back it said 9 minutes and was the Saturday SRL.

Angela, thank you for the heads up about Lukas' performance. I wish I could have been there. I am going to Wednesdays taping, I know you can't wait to see me again Dave!

The photos of Lukas are awesome, and he's wearing the ring I gave him!!! He wears it all the time. I am a proud mama, definitely not a mother dove. haha

The only thing I will say about Dilana is that she attributes her remarks about the other rockers to the fact that she is too honest. I am a very honest person too, and I would just say no comment.

Tophat how dare you insult Danni, I'm the one on medication!!

Fuck, I did miss todays SRL!! Dave can I come over and have a personal broadcat? Just don't call me a bitch, okay?

Posted by: Linda from San Diego at August 28, 2006 04:54 PM

Magni is the best rocker on this show including supernova,
He kicks ass evry time.
dilana is over, i hope that everyone can see that now, start voding fore the real talent, dilana was cool at the begining but its time to move on.
Magni rocks

Posted by: mdise12 at August 28, 2006 04:56 PM

Storm Large is 36.
Stormy Daniels, in the wikipedia bio, is 27.

Posted by: Joanna at August 28, 2006 04:59 PM

Dave, why was Dilana's wildcard choice a song she has been covering for years. Everyone else, especially Ryan and Lukas who do not do cover songs in their respective careers anyway, had to take their songs and arrange them over a couple of days. Lukas even said he didn't like the song and didn't like Nirvana and managed to come up with a completely innovative, original take on it that totally "killed".
Dilana seems to get songs she is used to covering, are within her vocal range and do not cause her to be challenged in any way. No wonder she never gets criticism for her delivery, she's had years to polish these songs. She is an excellent karaoke singer while Lukas and Ryan are true artists.

Posted by: Angela at August 28, 2006 05:03 PM

Hi Dave, Just listened to the new CD it was great. I know Rockstar is part of your job but it must get frustrating when that seems to the only topic on this site. Oh yeah maybe you change this address to 6969 it seems more fitting. I'm off to buy your new CD.

Posted by: Janet at August 28, 2006 05:11 PM

Hey Linda, don't mind me, I am just sitting her with my boyz being an asshat on meds.

No, SRL wasn't on yet. DN said later today! Skippy Linda, thanx for getting my back also!

Sorry to be such an asshat (whatever that is), but when does the SRL usually broadcast?

Posted by: meribella at August 28, 2006 05:19 PM

Hey there Dave and 67ers,

Okay, I just have to ask, because I've been reading a lot of Dilana bashing, as per usual. But if Magni hadn't been there and nobody had gotten hurt, would people be reacting this way to her throwing the glass? I agree that it was a dumb thing to do because no good can come from throwing glass objects. It just seems that people look for an excuse to tear down any performer that they don't like.

I know plenty of people have said things that make you cringe. Andrew Farriss had to be kept from giving interviews because he freaked out a few fans during one of the ones he did. :p (I'm sure he's since learned to think about what he says. :p )

Michael Hutchence got a lot of backlash towards the end of his career for some of his comments and some of his behavior, even though people really didn't fully understand the incidents. Now, unfortunately, he's not remembered for much other than that, except in the eyes of real, devoted fans.

List any rock musician from classic rock to more current times and they've all done some massively stupid things. Dave's said so himself that he's said some terrible things and regretted it. Same with TLee. Just about any performer you can name has. It would be a challenge to name a single one who hasn't.

Really, Dilana's only had a week or two to learn from her mistake. It takes a lot of people months, years, or even an entire lifetime to learn from theirs. So why allow yourselves to be persuaded by MBP in these regards? Lukas said some unsavory things in the beginning and was shown in a bad light. If you'll recall, he's often been portrayed as a drunk. In the first few weeks, Ryan made some snide remarks to and about Dana and there was a whole storyline going on as if he hated everyone in the house.

Everyone has been edited and while I think she should take responsibility for her actions, I also think that people are just looking for an excuse to knock her down. Why not just take a moment and let the guys decide how they want to handle the situations that come their way and choose the person they believe is best suited for them? And why not just let Dave do his job, and appreciate how much he does for his fans, and not get on his case to say what other people think he should say or axe the people that certain groups are pissed off at?

Dave, I love your music, and I appreciate your efforts to bring the public good music. Thank you for everything you do.

Best of luck to you, TPC, and the Supernova guys.

Much Love,

Sorry if this comment dragged on. This whole thing just puzzles me.

Posted by: Ali at August 28, 2006 05:24 PM

Hey there Dave...
I am so excited to see tomorrow's performance show... This is the exciting part.. Aren't the fans of other singers tired of jumping on this Dilana bashing... ?? Let the "rocking" talk.. have some confidence in your singer of choice to "bring it" without constantly slamming the front runner.. Please believe that most everyone in that house had said things about others there at one point or another.. look at all the episodes... it's there for the watching... particularly july 17th and 24th... Ryan and Lukas in the forefront... be careful what you say about character till you've seen them all...here's another tip.... Artists are high strung and often slightly off center... hahaha the great ones more than usual... but that's cuz I read the DC airport story... ahahahaaa rantings are so fun.. and good insight.. ;)

Posted by: Stephanie at August 28, 2006 05:26 PM

Woah! guys ive TOTALLY been following you since the beginning. you guys are totally average! if it wasnt for the fact that if i pretend to be your biggest fan in the world i might get to *interact and/or meet someone slightly famous* i wouldn't listen to your music at all! keep on RoCKing like it's 1995.

Posted by: the world at August 28, 2006 05:33 PM

Look can we leave this whole Dilana thing alone?
So she fucked up big deal.She wasn't going to win anyway.Was she exploited?Maybe but a lot of reality TV people are hung out to dry when they make a mistake that's why the real competition is to see if someone implodes ala Jordis or runs out of steam.

Suave Porn doesn't go into this thing not having a good idea who works for their music.This summer is about getting to work with their fave or two and seeing how they deal with the pressure and adapt.Can they bring it on songs they don't like or know?Are they consistent?Are they interesting?Do they bring some "it" factor.Do the public like them?Some of these people are great cover singers and are on the show just for entertainment purposes with no real chance at the gig.Don't get mad at that.Some are struggling talented artist that don't fit the band.

If your dude/girl doesn't win go out and support them.Bottom line this is the only show on the TV that has some pretty darn talented singers singing some of the greatest rock songs ever.For those you don't like the songs the show has gotten...bullshit they have some great songs.

Suave Porn is picking the same singer before Dilanagate that they are after Dilanagate.All Dilanagate did was let us know that the singer isn't Dilana.I could have told you that after Rebel Yell.

Posted by: KeithMoonLives at August 28, 2006 05:35 PM


I'm watching you on a Celebrity Poker repeat from 2004! You're playing with Angela Bassett, Mekhi Pfifer and some others.

Dave, you should have bet on the river!

Must say, you're looking pretty fine, even back in 2004!

Posted by: Beth at August 28, 2006 05:42 PM

I for one do not think we should move on. I would suggest that Dilana spend next week in a stockade with a sign around her neck describing her offences. Either that, or public stoning outside studio. Going to have to give up on srl today.

Posted by: asshat at August 28, 2006 05:44 PM

"Suave Porn is picking the same singer before Dilanagate that they are after Dilanagate.All Dilanagate did was let us know that the singer isn't Dilana.I could have told you that after Rebel Yell."

hi dave
any chance of TPC doing a tour down under mate we here in oz would love to have you guys and its been so long since i have been to a decent concert with a bit of rock to it. ok bye for now
luv col

Posted by: col at August 28, 2006 05:46 PM

I have to agree with KeithMoonLives. The musicians on the show are incredibly talented. The one who comes out on top will be the one that brought the 'it' factor. At least I hope this is the case.

What the heck is Suave Porn? I see this used a lot and have no idea what you guys are referring to.

Lukas is absolutely amazing!

Posted by: Beth at August 28, 2006 05:48 PM

Suave Porn is the moniker the guys at Leper Pop (hysterically funny takes on the show) have given to Supernova by scrambling the letters.
Somehow the name seems a lot more catchy than Supernova!

Posted by: Angela at August 28, 2006 05:53 PM

I completely agree with the comment posted by Howie - SN seems not to know what to do with Storm other than TLee who just continues with the lame begging to see her naked. She is obviously scary talented (and is obviously NOT "Stormy Daniels"), but
I think people aren't seeing her as a "contender" because unfortunately, she hasn't been as amazing on the show as she has been in the various bands she's been in (I've known of her since her FlowerSF days) throughout her career. Anyone who's seen her shows (and you can watch a bunch on YouTube - and then compare those to the SUCKASS cheese video "Do You Now" by Miss Dilana Smith) knows what an original, amazing performer and entertainer she is, but I admit she hasn't been as good on Rockstar. But then, Supernova's mediocre, forgettable music is nothing compared to the music of Metallica and GNR (I'm not including Motley Crue because while they were maybe "fun" they were hardly master musicians) so there's a weird parallel there...they need to start "bringing it" as much as she does, because from what I've seen so far, their stuff is really boring, in which case Dilana is a perfect fit for them.

Posted by: Sarah at August 28, 2006 06:01 PM

I just can't see SN giving the job to someone that did a cover for Britney Spears' "Hit Me Baby One More Time." That's just WRONG on so many levels.

Next week, I think all the rockers should have to do an original song. No more covers. That would be a kickass show!
