Icelandic Rocker Competes To Be In Lee's Supergroup

Subscribe To:

Icelandic rock star MAGNI ASGEIRSSON is so desperate to become a big name in America he's joined a reality TV contest to win the chance to front TOMMY LEE's new supergroup SUPERNOVA. Asgeirsson, 28, has already scored chart-topping albums in his native Iceland with his band A MOTI SOL and hit the top of the singles charts earlier this year (06). But now the Reykjavik-based rocker has joined the TV contest ROCK STAR: SUPERNOVA, where he'll try to impress judges DAVE NAVARRO, Lee, former METALLICA star JASON NEWSTED and guitarist GILBY CLARKE. He says, "I'm probably one of the 10 most recognised singers in Iceland... I'm looking forward to singing to the whole of America. It's the opportunity of a lifetime." Asgeirsson didn't impress show host Navarro when he made his debut on the programme, which aired last night (05JUL06). The former JANE'S ADDICTION guitarist told Asgeirsson his performance of THE ROLLING STONES' (I CAN'T GET NO) SATISFACTION was "a little on the Vegas tip".
