So, if you had a rock band and needed to replace a key member, would you want someone who sounds like you already? Or would you rather someone who brings a new element?
Do you think it makes a difference if you are a non-established band?
Or trying a comeback?
Do you need to reinvent yourself to have longevity? Have the Rolling Stones changed that much over the decades? Aerosmith? Has INXS been out of the spotlight too long to comeback without a big shake-up in sound?
If you were a singer/fronter auditioning for bands, would you want to stick with the same genre/sound? I do sometimes wonder why Marty tried out for INXS (as opposed to a Nirvana-type band) - purely career boost or was he looking for something different?
Whadya think? For INXS or in general. Does it depend on the band?
