    Well I think Marty is pretty far from INXS' style. Maybe not quite as far as Dylan and Van Halen, but I'm sure you get my drift. The point was (ahem) that bands do not replace missing members with people whose style does not mesh with theirs. IMO Marty didn't mesh.

    What I find funny is that Marty's song "Trees" sounds like a better INXS song that "Pretty Vegas". We'll just have to disagree on this... that's fine. I would much rather have seen INXS go with someone who came across authentic than a cheesy imitation of what came before. I do think that artists/bands can reinvent themselves. Makes for some pretty damn great music sometimes.

    Whatever their reasoning, INXS considered JD the best fit for the band. I don't think they see him as cheesy at all. They have described him as edgy, a great front man, an inspired lyricist....they seem perfectly happy with their choice. I think they loved PV from the moment they heard it, and were obviously eager to record it as it is the first single being released. I don't think JD is a cheesy imitation of MH. He has the same tone to his voice but I don't see him trying to channel Micheal while he performs. The guy just can't get a break, I guess! He's either accused of being too elvis-y, too much like MH, too loung-y...what are the other ones? I know there are more than that!

    I wish INXS all the best. They made their choice and they seem happy with it. Let's just hope they find what they are looking for and they all enjoy whatever comes down the road.

    Yep, all's well that ends well - Marty will do much better without INXS (great singer, great career ahead), JD will do much better with INXS (won't have to live in car), and FYI y'all, the radio station I listen to played a portion of "Pretty Vegas" yesterday morning, but they turned if off half-way through because it was so awful. And truly, without the visuals to distract while it's playing, it really is one of the worst songs I've ever heard.
    All I wanted was a 45, a stinking 45 - the record or the gun. I'd even settle for the damn malt liquor. - Al Bundy.

    I seriously had to turn the channel every time that song came on. I thought it was awful. JD was one of my least favorites from day one. I have to live with the fact that they chose him, but that doesn't mean I have to listen to them now. I ordered the Best of INXS from Amazon. I will be more than happy to remember the "good old days" than focus on whatever they do from here on out.

    So maybe they can boost their early work sales from this show, because their older fans will remember how great that work was and the show won't be a total loss.
