Bands I really Loved: INXS.

in #music4 years ago

All Videos Courtesy of YouTube.

Australian rock band, formed as The Farriss Brothers in 1977 in Sydney, originally playing covers and a few originals.

Main composer and keyboardist Andrew Farriss, drummer Jon Farriss, guitarists Tim Farriss and Kirk Pengilly, bassist Garry Gary Beers and Main lyricist and vocalist Michael Hutchence.

Fronted by Hutchence, whose "sultry good looks" and magnetic stage presence made him the focal point of the band for 20 Years , the Fairer Sex were very attracted to him. ( which of course, does the Band Image no harm whatsoever!)

Initially known for their new wave/pop style, the band later developed a harder pub rock style that included Funk and Dance.

What impressed me a lot, was:- No distortion necessary, no Studio Tricks, just Great Songs, Excellent Musicians, Great Stage Presence , a Superb Singer and Frontman.

They Worked Hard and often took Breaks when they got involved in several Side Projects, Michael acted in several Movies, and also worked on a Solo album.

His private life was often reported in the Australian and international press, with a string of love affairs with prominent actresses, models and singers.

In August 1992, after Drinking Heavily he got into an altercation with a Taxi Driver , who punched him to the Pavement , he had a fractured Skull which he ignored for days,As a result, it left him with an almost complete loss of the sense of smell and significant loss of taste] This led to periods of depression and increased levels of aggression.

During the 1993 recording of" Full Moon, Dirty Hearts "on the isle of Capri. Over those six weeks, Michael threatened or physically confronted nearly every member of the band.

Several of them stated He was not the Michael we knew!

On 22 November 1997, Hutchence was found dead in his Sydney Ritz-Carlton hotel room. New South Wales State Coroner, Derrick Hand, presented his report which ruled that Hutchence's death was a suicide while depressed and under the influence of drugs and alcohol.

The Band took a break for about a year, and then started performing again with various stand in singers.

There was a TV series called Rock Star INXS .On 20 September 2005, J.D. Fortune of Salt Springs, Nova Scotia, Canada won the eleven-week competition, which culminated in his singing the Rolling Stones's "You Can't Always Get What You Want" and INXS' "What You Need" in the finale of the show to become the new lead singer of INXS. With Fortune they recorded their 2005 album, Switch produced by Guy Chambers and went on a world tour in 2006.

This line up stayed static until about 2010 -2011.

In 2012 a Press release was issued , that after 35 Years INXS had decided to stop touring.

I personally preferred the Hutchence Period , My Son Wayne was a big Fan.

I hope you enjoy this?

As a special reward to you Die Hard music fans , here is the entire Wembley Concert with Hutchence singing.

INXS have sold over 50,000,000 Records!

I am sure you will understand My Enthusiasm! ( listen to that Drum Sound )

Great post and videos @awgbibb

These tunes are mind blowing.Afrer a long time, listened to so much of good music.

Love to attand live concerts.

I recall he died of asphyxiation from breath play in a BDSM scene. Still a good band.

Researched into it, Lots of Theories , was found with his own belt around his neck, was depressed ( on anti -depressants), had been drinking, and his Daughter had just been stopped from coming to visit him. So really, the rest is guessing?, Thank you for the visit!

I really liked how their song was used in the director's cut Donnie Darko opening scene.

great tunes and performance perfect !

Wow,,,, Fantastic @awgbibb

Thanks for the walk down memory lane @awgbibb. I flash back to Pepsi and 80s fashion and of course NEW SENSATION my favourite song of theirs. Good times :)

My Pleasure!

really awesome one amazing they are :)

How I wish they' d come here in the Philippines so that I could watch them live.

Not going to happen!

It's a great experience, when you witness a band who can play LIVE as well as in studio or better, the vibe, the rush you feel. I had that feeling in 91 at Main Road, Manchester, at 15 years of age for Sound Garden, Guns and Roses and Faith No More, i'l never forget it.

Try Winery Dogs!

Il look them up, thank you.

One of my favorite ones!! Thank you. Very sorry that there wont be no new album anymore...

All Good things pass, unfortunately!
