A true story of sex, drugs and rock and roll . . .
From the Inside Flap
In 1979, three brothers and their three best mates from Sydney formed a band called INXS and recorded an album that would launch them on an incredible journey, from playing Australias beaches and pubs to the worlds biggest concert venues. Along the way, theyd sell 30 million albums, rack up seventeen hit songs in the United States alone, and experience a life of sex, drugs and supermodels to rival any in rock history. This is their story. INXS broke new musical ground. In songs like Need You Tonight, New Sensation, Devil Inside, Never Tear Us Apart and Suicide Blonde, they turned rock, pop and funk into a cutting edge, danceable style that took the world by storm. Touring the world, they grew up together and made new fans on every continent. In this autobiography, they reveal for the first time everything they experienced in their more than two decades of making music: the partying, the women, the clashes in the recording studio, the wild times on the road, the heights and depths of rock star life, the bonds of brotherhood and friendship that got them through the tough times. They talk about the sadness of watching their closest friend and collaborator, Michael Hutchence, slipping away from them and offer their own thoughts about why he left them too soon. Much has been written about INXS over the years, but nothing before has been authorized by them or has reflected their point of view. This is all the history that INXS was never willing to talk about until now, and the book that every rock fan will need to own.
