This one I went ’round and ’round on. So many things to do, so many types of rock music. Finally, I decided to combine them and came up with this guy. His name IS “Rock Star”.
He’s some guy from the future, when there is no music of the people allowed. A true totalitarian state limits all artistic expression of the working class masses. He somehow learns about 20th century Rock and Roll, names himself “Rock Star”, and becomes a rebel rocker….inspiring the masses to rebel against their totalitarian overlords. (Shades of Footloose, CryBaby, 1984, and The Legend of Billy Jean).
He designs his costume based on many great rock and rollers, and types of rock music. There’s the multicolored hair and studded bracelets of the punk rockers, the high boots of the glam rockers, the star over the eye ala KISS, the bandaged hand ala one of Michael Jackson’s incarnations, the giant clock like Flava Flav to represent Rap music, and of, course, plenty of Elvis inspiration in the high collared jumpsuit. Finally, he has that kind of pretty boy androgynous face and slim build, while wearing makeup on one side of his body to represent more than one race, since true Rock n Roll has always been, in my opinion, a synthesis of the music of different races.
Anyway, there he is.
ROCK STAR! (not to be confused with DIET ROCK STAR, which is what I just finished drinking. ;D )
