INXS (Herb Ritts)A former front man of INXS has laid into the reality TV show Rockstar: INXS saying that the programmes choice will be ripped off.

Jon Stevens, who fronted the band for three years after Michael Hutchence’s suicide in 1997, advised winner JD Fortune: "Make sure you've got a great lawyer. But they'll (the winner) get raped and pillaged anyway" reports www.stuff.co.nz.

Calling the show ‘Mock Star’ Stevens added that the main objective of the show was “money, money and greed” and that the show could only create great television and not good music.

Which is a bit hypocritical as he was sitting on the judge’s panel of New Zealand’s Pop Idol at the time of the comments.
