Squealing fans lined up around the Planet Girlo Stadium to get the pre-release of Astro Joey & The Cosmic Ray’s new single – “I Am A Star.”
Not since the ancient times of the Granite Beatles, have we seen such scenes and response to a new release.
“We wrote it on our last tour when we came across some pretty nasty dudes such as music promoter, Ratty Rockface,” said Astro Joey.“The music business can be tough and as much as there are great people out there, there are also a lot of sharks, waiting to see you fall.”
Kristy Solarflare, The Royal Stella’s Musical Minstral and keys player in the band was the driver of the song. This single reminds us that it’s OK to be different, have dreams and shoot for the stars. She’s a wise gal and has a great head on her. Very creative and talented.
In my recent interview with her for i-Rock TV, she explained her inspiration behind the song “Sometimes it takes a bit of inner strength and courage to follow that dream to the top. Along the way, other kids can be jealous, try and knock you down and be mean for being a bright light in that sky. When I saw Ratty Rockface being a bully with people, it made me mad, so I figured I’d just put my feelings about it into a song. Music speaks for itself and always wins out at the end of the day,” she said.
Ratty Rockface was removed and escorted from the venue and Astro Joey & the Cosmic Rays continued to play their Girlo Rock Quartz sound and blew their fans away. Bullies are just not cool.
“I am a star” is a song that embraces uniqueness and pride in who you are. “I Am A Star, is the lead song in the developmental cartoon series, “The Adventures of Astro Joey .”
