RonJonSurfer Posted September 21, 2005 Report Share Posted September 21, 2005 INXS Chooses Canadian as New Frontman J.D. Fortune will replace the late Michael Hutchence as the lead singer of INXS. United Press International Australian rockers INXS chose Canadian J.D. Fortune as their new singer before a TV audience. Fortune beat fellow finalist, Chicago rocker Marty Casey, to replace the late Michael Hutchence during the finale of the CBS reality show/contest, Rock Star: INXS. Fortune, 31, is a former Elvis impersonator who said he once lived out of his car when he failed to live up to his name. But Fortune prevailed Tuesday night, beating Casey with his versions of the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and the INXS hit, "What You Need." The new band's first single, "Easy, Easy", was released Wednesday on Epic Records and the album 'Switch' -- the first for INXS since Hutchence's 1997 suicide -- comes out Nov. 29. INXS will take its new frontman on a world tour early next year. It wasn't all bad news for Casey, however, as INXS said they want to talk to him about possibly opening up for them on their upcoming world tour.
