    JD wasn't my favorite of his season, but I think he did a pretty good job of filling in for Hutchence. They did keep him for 2 years, which I'm sure they wouldn't have done if he wasn't filling the bill.

    That's exactly what I was thinking. You'd think that after he's been dirt poor once, he'd be a little smarter the second time around. I wish him well. I'm glad he's stopped doing coke--if in fact he actually has.

    He's a talented guy, no doubt about it. I'm sorry to hear that he's in a bad spot right now and I hope he can go back to making a living playing his music. Heh...if Velvet Revolver was willing to put up with Scott Weiland's antics, maybe they wouldn't mind taking on JD. (Not that JD can touch Scott Weiland, talent-wise.)

    I miss Rock Star, too. I guess Dave Navarro is too busy these days to bother with reality TV...I hear the reunited Jane's Addiction is recording. And Trent Reznor, no less, is involved - I'm looking forward to hearing the new material.

    I liked JD and went to see INXS when they played in Edmonton a few years back. It was a really good show. It's too bad he threw his big break away with drugs. What a waste.

    INXS Did Not Dump JD Fortune

    by Paul Cashmere - February 23 2009

    JD Fortune may not really have been sacked by INXS but he will never get back in the band after last weeks outburst on Canadian television.

    The INXS / JD Fortune saga will continue this week following an announcement from former manager and new record company boss Chris Murphy that the band did not sack JD Fortune.

    Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, Murphy says, "Not only are we shocked by the claims, even the place the supposed incident was to have taken place is a mystery to the band."

    He goes on to say that the band has a new recording deal coming up with his own label Petrol Records and that Fortune was about to be called.

    "I guess I have no reason to call him now," he said.

    JD Fortune announced on Canadian television last week that he was fired by the band at Hong Kong airport, that he was homeless and living in his car and had a problem with cocaine.

    Fortune became lead singer of INXS after winning the reality TV show Rock Star: INXS.

    His Canadian TV appearance was in support of his forthcoming solo album.

    Fortune’s behavior has been somewhat erratic of late.

    Why this line made me giggle, I have no idea but seriously.. somewhat?

    Seems to me that he is doing all of this to generate publicity for that upcoming solo album.

    I had the same reaction, because the sentence seems like such a very polite understatement!!

    INXS appear to be lying party here to prevent themselves from looking bad.
