Reality Television at it’s best Rockstar : INXS brought to the attention of the music world many a talent and Suzie was among the best. The band members of Inxs themselves were quite impressed with her even though they decided to go along with an equally impressive J D Fortune. That’s ok, Suzie can try her success at a solo career. announced plans to record her first CD with Executive Producer John Kalodner and Producer Marti Frederiksen. In the summer of 2006, Suzie performed as a backup singer for Pink on Pink’s North American tour. She had also sung backup on a couple of songs on INXS’s Switch cd and dueted with JD Fortune on the band’s God’s Top 10 song. Her solo album Broken & Beautiful was released this year.

Late last night I was going through Queensryche clips on Youtube. I found this gem of a version of Della Brown. Queensryche are one of the best rock / metal bands around, Empire is one of my top albums of all time and this MTV Unplugged version of this song is killer!
