2009

The band is once again without a frontman. The band signed with Petrol Records in December 2008, reuniting them with former manager Chris Murphy.[60] The band were preparing to enter the studio in March 2009 to record a new project without a singer.[61]

On 16 February 2009, J. D. Fortune revealed in an interview with Entertainment Tonight Canada that INXS let him go from the band with a shake of the hand at an airport in Hong Kong.[62] Fortune admits to becoming addicted to **** during his stint with the band.[63]. J. D. Fortune is back to living out of his car (pickup truck) and saving every dime to try and get his solo album released (provisionally titled, "Death Of A Motivational Speaker"). He said he's been off of all drugs including **** for the past two years. He discussed his story, along with with a live performance, on Toronto's Virgin Radio.

On 23 February 2009, Chris Murphy, INXS creative director and global business strategist and former manager, in an interview with The Daily Telegraph, said J. D. was not sacked and, in fact, "the band made it known to him that they had not ruled out seeing a return by Fortune." He also states JD was next on his list to call regarding a major recording contract he was negotiating for the band.[64] In an interview with Confidential on March 1, 2009, Murphy stated "The whole thing has been bizarre - he was basically a contractor and his contract had ended." [61] Speaking with Billboard, Murphy stated that he would rather part ways with the band than work with Fortune. "If the band said to me tomorrow, 'We'd still like you to make that call and talk to him about working on a project,' I'd have to say 'Sorry, I have to go.'[65]

In an interview with Sun Media published on 6 March 2009, J. D. Fortune clarified his claim that he had been fired at an airport. After returning to Canada from Hong Kong, Fortune believed there were still two more legs of the INXS 2007 tour to complete. When the rest of the tour was cancelled and the band did not return his calls for 10 months, he believed he was out of the band.[66]

The band are currently recording an album in memory of Michael Hutchence. Brandon Flowers of the band The Killers revealed that he recorded the song Beautiful Girl with the band.[67] The album is being produced by James Ash of Rogue Traders.[68]

Influence and recognition

Throughout the 1980s and into the 1990s, INXS was a major force in Australian popular music, leading the way into worldwide popularity for several Australian bands. The band worked closely with several other Australian artists, such as Models and ex-patriate New Zealander Jenny Morris, helping to establish their careers. By the mid-nineties, however, their popularity had waned, especially in the US, where their Greatest Hits compilation failed to reach the Top 100. At the 1996 BRIT Awards, Michael Hutchence presented Oasis with an award, after which their lead guitarist Noel Gallagher remarked "Has-beens shouldn't be presenting awards to gonna-bes".[69]

INXS was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Hall of Fame on 30 October 2001.[10][11][70] INXS has won six other ARIA Awards including three for 'Best Group' in 1987, 1989 and 1992.[9] The band has also received three Grammy nominations over their 30-year career. In 2007, The Farriss Brothers were inducted into the West Australian Music Industry Awards Hall of Fame. According to the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), INXS have sold 15 million units in the United States alone, making them the third-highest selling Australian music act in the United States, behind AC/DC and The Bee Gees.[71]
