Oh. No.

According to the news on their website and an article on E! Online, INXS is teaming up with Mark Burnett for Rock Star, a reality tv show that will help the band find its next lead singer.

I wish I could be excited about this. This show is probably an incredible opportunity for the band to rejuvenate itself, to gain a whole new legion of fans. I just don't know if I can follow.

I mean, I know that Michael Hutchence being gone doesn't mean that the music is over for the rest of the band. But that's the thing. No one's ever going to measure up. Maybe I'd feel differently if Michael had just left the band, instead of killing himself.

Gee, one would have hoped that after the collective fiascoes known as Jimmy Barnes, Jon Stevens and the delightfully bizarre pairing with Terence Trent D'Arby that the brothers Farriss would be ready to move onto a new project. Falling down a mountain, indeed...

some things should be left in the past, lest they want to end up on a 'top 50 worst' list...
