INXS without Michael Hutchence


"I had balls - and a dick as well."
- Suze DeMarchi

Garbage lead singer Shirley Manson, in dire need of green vegetables, "slammed" INXS for deciding to find a new lead singer for their band (hat tip to Porchboy).

"It isn't INXS without Michael Hutchence," said Manson. "I feel like in life you have to be prepared to let go of something in order for new growth to occur in your life. And I think it is unhealthy to be constantly coming back to recreate the past," she added. "You should forge forward instead of being sentimental about things that have gone by."

Here's a thought. Try letting go of the idea that INXS is impossible without Michael Hutchence. An interesting aspect of talk about Rock Star was how many folks claimed INXS was only possible with a male lead singer or, using their psychic insight, that INXS were sexist and consequently would never choose a female lead singer. In point of fact, INXS has already worked with Suze DeMarchi, formerly of Baby Animals, as a temporary lead singer and so a woman fronting the band was a reality before the reality tv show kicked in.

She is also Mrs Nuno Bettancourt. The first Baby Animals CD was rather good it was a shame they did not get more traction in the US & the UK.
