Amen to that. Michael Hutchence, like Freddie Mercury, is nearly impossible to replace. His charisma and devotion to the music industry lasted all through the 80's and into the 90's until he killed himself. That was really sad.
Either way, INXS was a great band nonetheless. With hits like "What You Need", "New Sensation", and "Need You Tonight", they really had a nice following in the US as well as Australia, the UK, and other countries.
All things considered, I want to see how INXS will do with a new lead singer. I doubt they will be really popular again here in the US, as, like Queen, their time has passed here, unfortunately...
We can only grow the way the wind blows
On a bare and weathered shore
We can only bow to the here and now
In our elemental war
- Rush, "The Way The Wind Blows"
