A South Korea Tale: ‘I Was Almost The New Lead Singer of INXS’

by Shelt Garner

I’m drunk, so I’ll tell all two or three of you stalkers a story that is very amusing.

The late, great lead singer of INXS.

Many, many moons ago, I was in Haebangchon when this guy in a band was so desperate for people to come to his gig that he was willing to pay ME $5. I didn’t have anything else to do, so I said, “Sure.”

Now, this rocker was bad news. I knew this when I accepted his $5, but I, dunno, had a lapse in judgement, I guess. And it was nice to have an extra $5.

Anyway, we got into a taxi and headed towards Itaewon where this guy’s gig was.

During the taxi ride to Itaewon, he told me that he was, at one point, allegedly, in the running to be the new lead singer of INXS. To this day, I think about this claim and wonder how possible it is that that doofus was, in fact, in the running to be the new leader singer of INXS.

I have my doubts. But….stranger things….
