Malibu Band Whitestarr Enjoys 'The Rock Life' on Their Way to the Top of the Charts

New VH1 Series, 'The Rock Life' Chronicles The Band As They Live The Rock And Roll Dream Premiering Monday, August 6 At 10:30 PM* With Back-To-Back Episodes

First Two Episodes Available on VSPOT at VH1.com Beginning Monday, July 30 -- One Week Prior To On-Air Debut

LOS ANGELES, July 13 -- Malibu, California. It's 27 miles of the most exclusive coastline in the country. It's also home to the rowdiest rock band you've never heard of -- WHITESTARR. They're a mixture of rock royalty and wide-eyed party animals ... five guys on a mission to live the rock n' roll dream and prevent adulthood from happening by any means possible.

"The Rock Life" premiering Monday, August 6 at 10:30PM* with back-to-back episodes will follow Whitestarr as they balance gigs, groupies, girlfriends and massive band drama. Cameras will also join Whitestarr as they face the highs and lows that accompany being part of an up-and-coming rock band dealing with the creative and personal challenges of recording and releasing an album. Beginning July 30, one week before the series' broadcast debut, the first two episodes will be available for on-demand viewing on VSPOT at VH1.com.

Whitestarr is Cisco Adler (vocals), Rainbow Jeramy (guitar), Alex Orbison (drums), Damon Webb (bass) and Tony Potato (dancer). Led by singer/songwriter Cisco Adler, son of music mogul Lou Adler, Whitestarr has become a staple in the L.A. music scene but they've been virtually ignored by the industry they hope to conquer. They've been in rehab, in the tabloids and in relationships with some of Hollywood's hottest starlets, including Mischa Barton. The only place they haven't been is the Billboard charts. But with Roy Orbison's son on drums, So-Cal rocker Damon Webb on bass and a fleshy, undersexed former lawyer named Tony Potato as backup dancer, Whitestarr is a rock and roll circus that's as much fun off-stage as they are on. Throw in an afro'd guitarist from Allentown, PA, named Rainbow, with major girlfriend drama and you've all the ingredients for the ultimate rock and roll cocktail.

From the sweet crash pad they share in Malibu, Whitestarr are living the rock life and turning every day into an adventure. A local gig finds Slash and Tommy Lee in the audience, "a few drinks" turns into a few oddly-placed tattoos, a fight with a girlfriend is front-page news and out of control egos threaten a performance at a Playboy event.

Viewers will get an insider's look at the backstage drama as these four rockers (and one dancer) fight to keep the band together and stop at nothing to realize their rock dream -- even if it means losing sleep, losing a girlfriend or losing a day job. It's going to be an uphill battle, and the band knows it's going to take more than a famous name to get there.

Whitestarr is set to release their second full-length studio album, Fillith Tillith, produced by Marti Frederiksen (Aerosmith, Sheryl Crow, Pink, and Faith Hill) on August 28th on new label VH1 Classic Records.

"The Rock Life" is executive produced by George Verschoor (Jamie Kennedy's "Blowin' Up," "Nashville Star") and David Osper (MTV's "Homewrecker"), and produced by Verschoor's Hoosick Falls Productions. Jeff Olde, Damla Dogan, Jill Holmes, Alex Demyanenko and Michael Hirschorn are executive producers for VH1.
