Bassist Jason Newsted Jason has joined a new supergroup called Supernova with Tommy Lee on drums and Gilby Clarke on guitar. They're using the 2nd season of the Rock Star TV show on CBS to find a lead singer. The show starts airing in 2006 on July 5 and runs for 13 weeks through the end of September. Jason Newsted has played with a number of musical luminaries, including heavy metal heroes Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne. He also takes time out of his schedule to play with some of tomorrow's big stars - our students! Jason joined our Honorary Board early in 2004 after seeing first hand the quality of our program and the benefits it brings to our students. "It has been proven that children who create relationships with musical instruments do better in school and in life," says Newsted. "In times like these, when the arts are being forced out of our schools, encouraging self-confidence in kids through music, or in any way we can, is absolutely essential. I'm honored to give my support to this incredible organization."
