    ‘I really liked Face Dances and Who’s Next. I had the tapes when I was a kid. Now I have that on CD. I also had It’s Hard.

    Kung Fu was awesome. Probably the best show I watched in the 70’s. That and the six million dollar man.

    Do you EVER get tired of being such a self-righteous douchebag? Or are you completely un-self aware?
    Yeessh. What a putz.

    Oh..and NO one needs YOUR permission for anything. Get a grip on your self.

    Some people like Lima beans, some people don't like Lima beans! ;) But they were massive, for sure. I did see them once, on a lackluster 'farewell' tour. And, of course:

    I saw them on their 1983 "Farewell" tour...lol...wasn't lackluster though....and certainly wasn't a last hurrah. They should call the next album Who's Left

    Late in their career? Always liked that one. Let's do it live.



    Got to appreciate the audience participation.

    INXS... saw them by accident without really knowing who they were. US Festival '83, day one.

    When I saw their name on the bill I thought it was pronounced "INKS"

    Enjoyed them, went on to like a lot of their music.

    Never enough of a fan to "know about" the band, but thought them creative and skillful.

    A treasured relic of youthful ignorance...

    Such a cool song. They knew how to write some great hooks.

    The Who should have stopped when they lost Keith. Or found a more suitable drummer.

    Loved INXS. The harp Solo on Suicide Blonde inspired me to buy “harmonica for dummies” and become proficient enough to play it in a band.

    N00b!



    Keith Moon. John Entwistle. Roger Daltrey. Pete Townshend.

    That was a Rock and Roll show.

    There was a lot wrong with the eighties. Shabooh Shoobah is everything that was right with the eighties. The One Thing and Don’t Change are phenomenal songs.

    "Don't Change" was a pretty epic early MTV video.

    The sound system was at least two stories high. It was a 100,000 seat cavernous stadium. Now destroyed. :(

    August 1992, Helena Christensen and Hutchence were walking late at night on a street in Copenhagen after drinking heavily when he refused to move for a taxi.[45] The taxi driver then assaulted him, causing him to fall backwards and hit his head on the roadway. Hutchence suffered a fractured skull in the altercation.[46] Hutchence did not immediately seek medical assistance for the injury, instead waiting several days before seeing a doctor. As a result, his fractured skull left him with an almost complete loss of the sense of smell and significant loss of taste.[47] This injury led to periods of depression and increased levels of aggression; he had not fully recovered after two weeks in a Copenhagen hospital. According to INXS bandmate Beers, Hutchence brandished a knife and threatened to kill him during the 1993 recording of Full Moon, Dirty Hearts on the isle of Capri. Beers recalled, "Over those six weeks, Michael threatened or physically confronted nearly every member of the band."[48]

    I really enjoy "Shabooh Shoobah" and "Listen Like Thieves". Great work in my opinion. "Kick" is pretty good stuff too. They're a big part of my 80's mental soundtrack.

    INXS were a fine band, and made a lot of catchy, unique songs. Good production on their records, too. My band in high school covered “The One Thing”. Fun song to play.
