Gilby clarke quits supernova. Tommy to keep going

According to ET Canada, former GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Gilby Clarke has left ROCK STAR SUPERNOVA, the band he formed with Tommy Lee (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Jason Newsted (VOIVOD, ex-METALLICA) and Canadian vocalist Lukas Rossi. No reason was given for Gilby's departure but the disastrous sales of the group's self-titled debut album (which has shifted less than 56,000 copies in the United States since its November 2006 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan) are believed to have been a contributing factor.

Although Rossi didn't confirm Clarke's exit from the band, he told ET Canada that "there will be a name change… the best is yet to come!" He also said that he is working on lyrics for a new album.

There is no word yet if Lee and Newsted will continue to be involved with the group, which completed a U.S. tour in February with THE PANIC CHANNEL as support.

The band lost Newsted in October 2006 after an accident that resulted in a torn anterior labrum in his left shoulder and a rotator cuff and bicep tear in the right (bassist Johnny Colt of BLACK CROWES/TRAIN filled in during the aforementioned trek). Newsted suffered the injuries while trying to catch a 90-pound bass head that had fallen from atop his amp. The combination of surgery and a lengthy rehab assignment left him sidelined for up to nine months.

"Rock Star Supernova" was certified gold in January for Canadian sales in excess of 50,000 copies.

Too bad...Lukas was always my boy on that show...

BAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHH!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!

*wipes tear*

Not hating on the Rossi, but man this does not surprise me at all. I wonder how, comparatively, INXS did with their album... Makes you wonder whether CBS even wants to touch a third season.

I respect you guys 100 percent but dilana was amazing and found myself looking up dilana on thenet to try catch a peak of what shes doing more than i have been trying to see what rockstar supernova is doing . In my humble opinion rossi can be great and amazed with his type of on the fly lyrics which means he is special. By far th best thing ive heard rossi sing was his selftitled song , i think it was "Im not perfect". I totally felt that song. But not feeling the mix rockstar was throwing him,FOR HIM. The music was great. My favorite all time moment on the show was dilana and lukas rossi's .. It seems like the these types of fells were not in the released album , which was a bummer because that shit had me watching commercial to make sure i didnt miss a second of the show.!
