So who is INXS's new lead singer? If you had gone to the INXS site, you would hear their new track "Tiny Summer". Andrew said that the singer for that song is some young Irish bloke. Almost all the INXS fans think it's Bono. When I heard the track, my first thought was not Bono! Then when I read Andrew's message, I knew I was right! He said it's a YOUNG Irish dude. Bono is not young! Bono is an old fart. And besides, that does not sound like him at all. So I don't know what is wrong with the fans that believe wholeheartedly that that's Bono, but I can tell you it surely isn't him. I don't have a clue who it is, but I do know it is not Bono. I never thought for one second it was. Well! Let me rephrase that. At first I expected to hear his voice, because other INXS fans said it was him. So for the first 1/2 second of the singing, I thought it was him. Then after hearing the following 5 seconds of singing, I knew it was NOT Bono. But some other INXS fans believe it is with all their heart and soul and won't let up. Well, that's on them! Not me. They'll eat crow when they find out they are wrong.
My big question is this: Why so secretive now??? INXS used to be an open book. Now, it seems everything with them is so hush-hush. And why the Hell every time they put up a new album do they change their website???? It's getting to be annoying. I realize that is their right, but I'm getting sick of this constant change. I cannot even view the tour comments anymore. That sucks!! Not that I went in there that often, but still! It's getting to be annoying. I really wish INXS would keep their site up and stop taking it down every time they get a new album going. I didn't particularly care for INXS's last album. Maybe that's why they had a tiger illustrating their last album. They wanted people to know they are being lazy, and putting a tiger on the front cover would be the best way I can think of to get that kind of message across. Tigers are the perfect symbol for laziness! I couldn't think of a better animal to represent that. I hope their next album turns out better. But if that dumb tiger is still on that cover, I probably won't buy that album either. Because that pic would still be telling me that INXS are being lazy again, and I won't support laziness. Still LOVE Timmy though! To me, he's still the most handsome man I've ever seen.
Now, what happened to JD????? Why is he not still with INXS? That doesn't make sense. They hired him, took them a whole summer to announce he was right for "Our band, INXS". So what's the beef? Why is JD canned now?
That young Irish bloke has now been identified as Ciaran Gribbin, also known as Joe Echo. Apparently he will also be touring with INXS later on. I think it'll be next year. But so far, no plans are in place to come to the USA. Let alone Montana. Heck Timmy doesn't even know this state exists!!
