I was a huge fan of Rockstar:INXS, HUGE I tell ya!
I just ran across some info on the next version (starting July 5th) and I have to say I am confused. They seem to be putting 3 guys (that I never heard of) from 3 bands (2 I didn't like and one that I was lukewarm on) together for the sole purpose of putting on this show. I was a big fan of INXS (back in the day) so I knew their music, could tell when it was being sung properly, was interested in the band's opinion and enjoyed hearing all the different versions during the elimination shows. With these guys, I have no frame of reference and frankly don't give a crap about what they think or if they succeed.
I remain hopeful that I will enjoy the show because the best parts were always the performances. The band stuff, while interesting, wasn't the draw. Time will tell...
