(RockStarGoHome.com, July 2) - When "Rock Star: Supernova" airs on Wednesday night it will become apparent that his reality rockumentary managed by Mark Burnett and CBS has a secret weapon. That's right, there's more to Rock Star Supernova than Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted, Gilby Clarke, Dave Navarro and cutie pah-tutie Brooke Burke.
That secret weapon is Butch Walker. For those of you who have never heard of Butch Walker, get ready for a refreshing and introspective perpective from a modern rocker.
Butch Walker is an emo-looking, award-winning record producer and artist that passed on several projects to be a part of this gig.
Make no doubt about it, Butch walker comes to Rockstar Supernova with serious street credibility. Butch Walker has been voted the "2005 Producer of the Year" having worked with Avril Lavigne and several other acts including Bowling for Soup, Pink, Lit, Sevendust, The Donnas, American Hi-Fi, and SR-71.
Butch Walker is also a solo artist having recorded several cds and toured the country and the world. In late 2005, he released his first DVD "Live At Budokan." On July 18th, 2006, his newest record will be released, entitled "The Rise and Fall of Butch Walker and the Let's-Go-Out-Tonites."
But.... Why is Butch Walker, Superrnova's producer, the secret to the anticipated success of CBS's Rock Star: Supernova?
There are two key reasons why Butch Walker is going to bump ratings for CBS:
First, Butch Walker adds a new, fresh and very funny personality to this reality tv gig. Butch is incredibly smart, quick, witty and insightful. Plus, you can already tell that he has a developing on-camera crush on Brooke Burke which will be fun to monitor during the next 13 weeks. (Then again, I think everyone who comes in contact with Brooke has a crush. Me included.)
Second, Butch Walker is tasty compliment to the Rock Star Supernova cast of Tommy Lee, Jason Newsted, Gilby Clarke, Dave Navarro, Brooke Burke and the Rockstar Supernova Contestants.
The proof of Butch Walker's Secret Weapon status? The impact of Butch Walker was felt during the first taping of Rock Star Supernova. Butch Walker provided the audience with laughs, giggles and "a-has". That, my friends, is not easy to do.
Make my words. Butch Walker will become a pop icon by the time Rockstar Supernova completes fiming in September, 2006.
