‘Rock Star: INXS’ Finale Marks New Beginning For House Band

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The Rock Star: INXS season finale is tomorrow (Sept. 20) but the show’s end is marking a new beginning for Paul Mirkovich, the leader of the show’s house band, which is called “House Band.”

Mirkovich – who has worked with Janet Jackson, Shawn Colvin and Peter Gabriel – says he’s enjoyed working with the musicians and singers and says there’s been talk of either his band working with the singers not chosen by INXS or going out on tour with a few of them.

He admits he doesn’t like touring but would consider it for this project because, in his words, “I really like working with these guys and would like to show what we can do beyond the confines of a three-minute song.”

Before that begins, INXS has to pick the lead singer and Mirkovich admits the band has been relying on his input. He says the final choice may come down to if the band wants someone who is clear about what he wants or someone who is creative and chaotic.
