Who are the band members in Rock Star? The band members are portrayed by ex-Dokken and current Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson, Black Label Society founder & Ozzy Osbourne guitarist Zakk Wylde, actor Dominic West, and ex-Foreigner and Black Country Communion drummer Jason Bonham (the son of the late John Bonham, drummer for Led Zeppelin).
Who is the real band in the movie Rock Star? They are actually different. Chris’ band Blood Pollution and their rivals, Black Babylon are “tribute bands” as they cover songs by just one band–Steel Dragon.
Did Mark Wahlberg do his own singing in Rock Star? He can sing too
Because of “Good Vibrations,” we know that Wahlberg can rap his pants off, but he’s not a bad singer either. Remember the 2001 movie Rock Star? He did actually sing in the movie, though he admits there was someone else helping him out with the crazy high notes.
Is Rock Star based on Judas Priest? Telling the story of Chris ‘Izzy’ Cole, Rock Star is said to be inspired by ex-Judas Priest frontman Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens. Owens spent time fronting Priest tribute band British Steel before replacing Rob Halford and teaming up with his childhood idols in 1996.
