INXS comment on U2 Video SIAMYCGOO

This was taken from an article in the L.A. Times newspaper today (excerpt).

There's comfort, too, talking about the death of Hutchence, which inspired many tawdry rumors but was eventually ruled death by suicide under the influence of alcohol and drugs.

Tim Farriss and bassist Garry Beers, for instance, could have dodged a question about the band's reaction to "Stuck in a Moment You Can't Get Out Of," the plaintive U2 song that pays tribute to Hutchence. Instead both said they found the music video and themes of the song a bit off-putting.

"I'm not really sure what that was all about and in some ways I think it's better to let things go, right?" Tim says. "In the video, Bono even looked like Michael. I don't know what that was all about." The conversation's lingering impression: Hutchence is not going away but the band wants to move on. And now young Fortune brings the band both a measure of novelty and a reprieve from the past.

INXS' turn of good fortune
It's a revived band with singer J.D. Fortune, who's dealing with reality after winning the gig.
by Geoff Boucher, Times Staff Writer


I actually didn't read the whole thing. My husband mentioned something about the U2 part, so I went straight to it

Where do they have room to talk? They tarnished his name with a reality show...

I don't see any resemblance to Michael in the video.

To say Michael H. could be replaced by someone on a reality is a major slap in the face to a once great front man. At least U2 paid tribute to Hutch during Popmart and during the Elevation tour by dedicating a song or 2 to him.

Bizzarro. Bono the stocky Irishman doesn't resemble the wiry Hutchence at all. Does Tim imagine that U2 is trying to earn some fans or respect or fame by having Bono impersonate Michael?

Bizzaro.

the Farris have been known for saying a lot of stupidity, especially after Hutch's dead;
but i dont really think Hutchence was the only good thing on INXS because the Farris are really amazing musicians.
But Hutchence was something special
One of the greatest frotmen ever

This is yet another instance of "someone in the music industry dares to say a little about something U2 has done that is not entirely positive and flattering (although not degrading either) and we have an army of U2 fans ready to butcher him".

The problem is not that the remark isn't positive or flattering - it's that it simply makes no sense.

bono doesn't look a bit like hutch; j.d. does

and this is coming from an inxs fan (well, a fan of the music they made with hutch) and someone who doesn't care if people say negative things about bono or U2
