Marty Casey - he was on Rockstar INXS, too!

So I've learned that JD Fortune has been working on a solo project after INXS stopped touring. As I await to learn more about it, I thought I'd take a quick look back at Rock Star: INXS, the show that basically catapulted him to stardom.

In that pic (taken from Rock Star: INXS) you can see (from left to right) Marty Casey, JD Fortune, and MiG Ayesa. All three were anticipating the decision from INXS on who would be INXS's new lead singer. Doesn't JD look so adorable there? I have to admit though...I was actually rooting for Marty Casey at the time.

I was very impressed by Marty's performances. To put it simply, his performances kicked @ss (I wasn't sure if blogger would allow me to publish the actual word I meant - but I think you know what I meant)! One I especially got a real kick out of watching was his dark rendition of Baby One More Time - yes, that Britney Spears hit song. Check out the video of Marty Casey's version on YouTube here.

While Marty didn't win the contest to become INXS's new lead singer, he and his band, The Lovehammers,were fortunate to be able to perform with INXS for a great part of the concert tour.

I purchased a CD of Marty Casey and the Lovehammers as soon as it became available. I was quite pleased with the album which included the song Trees that Marty co-wrote and performed on Rockstar INXS. It's one album I definitely feel was worth buying.

By the way, that's a collage I put together of Marty Casey shortly after Rockstar INXS ended its run. I just thought I'd share it here. (Wow, can you believe that was almost three years ago?!)
