I'm not really sure what that was all about and in some ways I think it's better to let things go, right? In the video, Bono even looked like Michael. I don't know what that was all about.

We were very concerned with that. There was a lot of criticism. But once (the skeptics) saw the show, it dried up pretty quickly. All we did was try to do the best we could to find a new singer.

It was a bit like what's the best way to find a new lead singer, someone who doesn't already have a band? And for us to check them out (over a period of time). We had the luxury on a television show of watching people over 13 weeks, to see them grow or not grow.

You have to learn to pace yourself, in everything. Sure, there's a pub in every town. But you don't have to go to all of them, right? If you want to do this, you have to learn to keep steady.

We basically dropped our pants in front of the world.

Once the music starts, he's fine.

He's the guy with the accent.

J.D. ... you are right for our band, INXS ... you are the rock star.

J.D. has a slightly dangerous edge and will bring a sense of spontaneity to our live show. In addition, he has both the star quality we were looking for and is an inspired lyricist. I think he'll grow with us on all levels.
