Guess the new singer of INXS

Over the last decade we have seen INXS featuring Jon Stevens, INXS featuring Terence Trent D’Arby, INXS featuring JD Fortune and next month the aging Aussie rockers will reveal yet another frontman at the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships.

Since the death of Michael Hutchence in 1997, Kirk Pengilly, Gary Gary Beers [sic] and the Farris brothers have dared to keep the dream alive, with varying degrees of success. Their most recent singer JD Fortune, who has a penchant for poncing around stage topless and/or in a top hat was recruited through reality tv show series Rock Star INXS. Unfortunately life as a Rock Star proved all too overwhelming for Fortune who quickly developed a roaring cocaine addiction and briefly took up residence in his pick-up truck. While the singer reunited with the band for a tour last year, according to The Age Fortune confirmed his official departure last month tweeting: “I have not been invited to be a part of INXS ‘New Music’.”

So who will be joining INXS on stage for their last live show of 2011? Given that the band recently recorded a self-tribute album Original Sin featuring dozens of musos, the list of possibilities is endless. Ben Harper, John Mayer, Rob Thomas and Australia’s own Dan Sultan all lent their vocals to songs on the album, along with Nikka Costa (who frankly, we’d love to see up front of the band) and Patrick Monahan from Train, who has surely had a lot of time on his hands since 2001.

Who do you think will be up front of INXS on December 3rd?

It has to be an Australian right? As farcical as it is anyway, it'd just be deplorable for anything other than an Australian

Didn't they do Terrence Trent D`arby one time, though? So it's not like they'd be abusing new ground there.

what if the new singer is going to be the person who guesses the new singer correctly?

why would patrick monahan have had a lot of time on his hands since drops of jupiter? i'm not even a massive fan, but no one can say they are one hit wonders after last year's album. that was a tad sucessful.

these guys are awesome musicians and should play on, no question, however it isn't ever going to be the same without michael.

Maybe they could get all the runner-ups from Australian Idol and put them on a chocolate wheel??? But seriously aren't they just the Michael Hutchence tribute band now?

ronan keating??!!!! please shoot me now! hasn't he lost all credibility since the altiyan debacle and now cheating on his wife with a dancer??? please don't let this be true! the only way they could redeem themselves would be if they crawled on their knees to jon stevens.

Maybe they should play in front of a big projection of Michael H, like when the Elvis band tour.

hmm, let me think...? somebody mediocre and half the singer hutchence was and who will ultimately last about 6 months, further diminishing any sense of credibility inxs had? just a wild guess....

I have the solution to this conundrum:

1. Make The Avalanches join INXS
2. Give them every bit of audio with Michael Huchence talk to work with
3. ????
4. Profit

Nosyt said on the 9th Jan, 2012

That's about as likely as a new album
