IVP - Strangely Dim - INXS Through the Out Door

INXS Through the Out Door

Well, I can't say that INXS's pick for lead singer was my last choice, but J. D. Fortune certainly wasn't my first or even second choice. Last night was the finale, and since Jordis was eliminated a few weeks ago, I was eager to see Marty take the reins. He sang "Don't Change"--the second INXS song I ever heard but perhaps first in my heart--and ruined me for any other INXS lead singer. Tremendous. Marty is from Chicago, which makes him a local hero, so I'm hoping his band will get picked up so I can get his song "Trees" out of my head and on to the radio.

Brooke Burke, with characteristically little emotion, invited viewers to sign up for the next season of Rock Star, but I'm racking my brain to figure out what big-name band needs a new lead singer. Maybe the Ramones? Maybe the Clash? Maybe, however, some band will take advantage of this opportunity to give their current front person the boot. Therefore, I invite you to nominate bands that need a new lead singer, whether they know it or not.

- Queen... (they don't need to boot their lead singer)
