Sticks Rooster was the drummer for the 63rd line-up of Pakafroon Wabster. With the band's popularity on the decline, they went on a trip to Malphapalooza in an attempt to save their careers, but along the way time spillage from the ship's engines placed them in a time loop, during which they constantly relived their deaths in the destruction of their ship.

When the Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler arrived on the ship in the TARDIS, they tried to save the passengers, but failed and died with them when the ship exploded. During this iteration, Sticks asphyxiated in the vacuum of space. When the loop restarted, the Doctor and Rose, unlike the others, remembered what had happened and used their knowledge to save the band members' lives, expose Jacey's plan to kill them, and free them from the loop.
