INXS to Rework Hits in 2010?
2010-02-24 by Davey Boy STAFF | 17 Comments

After ditching reality television appointed vocalist J.D Fortune last year, Australian band INXS plan to release a self-tribute of their 'Greatest Hits' with a variety of big name vocalists.

The Killers' Brandon Flowers is already locked in according to drummer Jon Farriss: "He sang a really beautiful, heart-wrenching rendition of Beautiful Girl while in Australia for V Festival last year".

Rob Thomas has also been reportedly locked in for Original Sin and/or Never Tear Us Apart, while other rumored to be in on the action are Ben Harper, Tricky, Gabriella Cilmi and Kav Temperley of Eskimo Joe.

This is a pretty unique idea. Have updated sounds of 80's hits.

Should be good

this seems better than trying to fill Hutchence's shows altogether

So it'll be "Standing On The Outside" (Cold Chisel's greatest hits) but with American and Australian artists and probably without the originals.
Great!

This sounds like a good idea but I've never loved this band.

I think it could go one way or the other. If they play it too safe, it's just gonna be boring. But if they do some reinterpreting, it could work. Of course, it's mostly gonna depend on the vocalists they bring in.

I can't see Rob Thomas doing Never Tear Us Apart. I see him more as a What You Need type of guy.

Curse.

I think Keith Buckley should do a song or two

ahem... The lead singer was gr8. He got into drugs n thrown out shamelessly. INXS is pretty much good for this. Reworking hits. Thats what they should stick to.

I have to say that I was very happy with JD Fortune. I watched the show and knew he was the obvious choice. I saw them live and met them all after the show. I felt they were a good fit. I also really like SWITCH, although I may be the only one.

It's funny, I was just thinking about them the other day and today I saw a commercial for a new TV show with JD Fortune supplying the music. That's how I ended up here. Hopefully, the new album will work.
