INXS selects 'Rock Star' finalist J.D. Fortune as its new frontman

UPI News Service, 09/21/2005 

Australian rockers INXS chose Canadian J.D. Fortune as their new singer before a U.S. 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 on air they want to talk to him about "about possibly opening up for us on our upcoming world tour."
