I think that it is disgusting that they would do a reality show looking for someone to replace Michael Hutchence. Michael Hutchence is irreplaceable. It is an insult to Michael that they think that just some random person off the street can take his place. INXS has not done anything for years, but come on why would they even consider doing this. It seems people will do anything for money. This is just sad.

Tim and Kirk were interviewed on Sydney radio this morning and one of the shows tests is going to be writing skills.
They have said in pervious interviews they will record new material with the winner, release a CD and then tour.

Ok, fine, but why America?
No offence guys, but INXS is fucking Australian.

I was shocked when I first heard this last year. I think its sad...especially after what happened to Michael. Its not like he left the band at his own accord and they *need* to find a new singer,but I mean considering the circumstances, why?

They are doing this across the globe! There will be tryouts in Aus over the next few weeks.

It was on the radio here in Perth as well.

This would have to be one of the most stupidest things I have ever heard.

That's like saying U2 could go on without Bono. It's just not possible.
U2 could play just fine without Bono. That boy Edge can sing better than Bono at times...

Larry'd have to sing backup though... that would be interesting.

If they were calling it U2, it would be wrong. Otherwise, if it was a side project with a different name it actually would be kind of interesting I think. Thats kind of how I view the INXS situation. Its the fact that they are keeping the name. What was even more disturbing was the last lead singer they had. Looked, sounded and moved just like Michael. That was even more disturbing to me personally.

there's a difference between journey going out and getting a steve perry clone (the guy's name is steve!) because steve perry isn't dead. he had health problems which prevented him from touring (i'm a behind the music junkie). michael hutchence is dead, and i think they'd still be making music if he was still alive. if i were to see the new inxs after all this is done, i wouldn't want to see michael part two up there singing. it would be creepy, disturbing, and sad.

The Grateful Dead still tour under a slightly different name, since the passing of Jerry. For awhile they were "The Other Ones", now they're "The Dead", but even they know after all these years, and after other band members have died -- Pigpen, Brent Mydland --, that it's just not the Grateful Dead without him, even after so many years together.

I wish INXS took that same lesson to heart.

On the other hand... I wonder why I don't react like this to Brian May and Roger Taylor still going out and calling themselves Queen? For christsake, Freddie was the DEFINITION of frontman....

Maybe it's because they're not recording anything, or really pretending to be anything more than a "tribute band to themselves" as they were when Freddie was at his finest. INXS intends to keep going.....

I was lucky enough to be able to see both the Grateful Dead and INXS in their heydays... not so with Queen... I know how I'd feel about it now tho.

yeah it's weird isn't it? i mean, there's a good and a bad way to go about it i guess. i mean, look at ac/dc. it's another australian band that had a lead singer who died. but they managed to make it work. i'm sure there's some fans who don't even know there was a previous singer! but they didn't go scouting around the globe looking for the next bon scott.

The Doors are still around too. Except they're called Doors of the 21st Century.

They have Ian Astbury as the singer which would be interesting. I actually wouldn't mind seeing that show.

Ian needs to stick to The Cult IMO, they are an underrated band.

Alot of the Doors fans are not happy with the 21st Century Doors. I think Morrison's family tried to sue them actually.
