Rock Star: INXS

Does this new 'reality' show just tick off anyone else?

A legend-in-the-making in Michael Hutchence kills himself tragically, and this is how he is replaced? With a reality TV show?

If this isn't selling out, I don't know what is.

Hutch is probably rolling over in his grave.

I don't blame the other band members for wanting to still carry on and make music, but it's too bad this is the way they chose to do it.

I'm probably going to watch it, though, because I dig reality shows where people have to sing.

I loathe the idea of this show and refuse to watch a milisecond of it.

RIP, Michael.

Yeah sic 'em all-powerful Bono, for it is the will of your people.

Haven't seen the show or even the previews, but...

Agreed that you can't blame the other band members for wanting to continue to make music, and who knows some of them may be kidding even themselves enough to believe that that's what it's about. The music, man. The legacy. But I declare shenanigans! Shenanigans! No wait.. sell-out!

It's an insult to the memory of Michael, who perhaps even in post-mortem state has more charisma than the collective band and contestants. Hm that's a bit snarky, I take that back. (But he does..)

Outrage aside, isn't anyone surprised that the show made it past the initial concept phase? And when it inevitably comes time to cut an album, who's writing the material? It's been a long time since the last hit, guys..

No. Have you SEEN the state of TV lately? If it's not a reality show or some form of "Law and Order," it ain't on.

There's also going to be a TLC-reality show where they search for a replacement for Lisa "Left Eye" Lopez.

Even though I'll probably watch it, I have to say the potential "rock stars" in the running on the commercials look mega-lame.

Whatev. Someone let me know when "America's Next Top Model" comes back on.

the whole concept definitely seems tasteless.
but as i haven't seen it yet, i guess i will (try to) reserve judgement.
when does this show air?

I loved that band and still do! I am appauled they are replacing Michael Hutchence through reality tv. No matter how they try or what they do they will never be the same. They should've atleast changed their name from INXS to something else

Michael
