I'm really pissed off about this they where a great band but this quite possibly the stupidest thing ever

This just looks like another "reality" show to me.

i think someone posted about this a while ago, but it was long enough ago that i was hoping since i hadn't heard anything new, they decided to scrap the idea. it's a terrible idea :down:

INXS is not INXS without Michael Hutchence.

That's like saying U2 could go on without Bono. It's just not possible.

They should have stopped these reality shows right after the 1st episode of Survivor! :|

okay, so they're going to be a couple hours away from my tomorrow. i wish i could go only so i could yell at them for doing this. i love inxs, and i can understand that they want to go on. that's fine, they can look for a new singer. but NOT with the inxs name. that's like looking for a replacement child if one dies. you can have another child, sure, but no child will replace the one you lost.

They were a fantastic band, but now INXS are just a Michael Hutchence tribute band.

It is rather sad. The thing is Andrew wrote most of the music for the band. Michael wrote most of the lyrics obviously and some songs. I have met Andrew and he is a really nice down to earth guy. My impression is that he has that creativity in him and he just cant let it go and the rest of them just enjoy playing. I think they should have just started over with a new name. But they worked just as hard to get that name up there and I dont think they want to let it go. I wish they would, but I think thats their reasoning. :shrug:

KhanadaRhodes 01-26-2005 04:51 PM

they could go back to using the farriss brothers, after all they now make up more than half the band. :shrug:

also i wonder are they going to do new material with this person? will they record new albums? but i still can't picture anyone but michael singing songs like mystify, never tear us apart, don't change...all of them really.

btw that's cool that you met andrew, he does seem like a really nice guy. i think out of everyone in the band i'd want to meet him...or jon :drool: :laugh:
