Ritchie says hes always bobbled his head while he sings and was surprised it inspired such contentious reactions in Supernova members Tommy Lee, who liked it, and Jason Newsted, who didnt.
He doesnt believe his bobbling head affected his performances, but admits he wasnt able to be himself because contestants are required to sing songs that, as he puts it, You dont always feel crazy about.
Although Ritchie believes the band has a certain idea for their sound, he wonders why the band is auditioning people who dont fit their style, offering diverse candidates who dont have a chance to win but have broader ratings appeal.
Still, Ritchie doesnt hold a grudge against Supernova and thinks his current band, Lennex, would be a great opening act.
As he puts it, Ive heard some of the music theyre working on and it sounds modern. Theyre definitely not going back to the hair bands.
