Fortune And Fame


J.D. Fortune
Instant Rock Star

After a grueling 3 month reality TV audition, J.D. Fortune, a 32 year old former Elvis impersonator from Canada, was selected by the 80's rock band INXS to be their new lead singer during the finale of the CBS semi-reality series, Rockstar:INXS. Fortune went from literal rags - living out of his car in a small town in Nova Scotia, Canada - to virtual riches (including virtual fame) in the amount of time that many were enjoying their summer vacation. A dream come true...to those who still care about rock and roll, that is!



"If You're Happy And You Know It
"Raise Your Hand!"


Fortune, along with 14 other wanna-be lead singers were all participants in this summer's CBS reality series, which was formatted like a rock and roll Survivor, where each week, one singer was voted out of the competition by the members of INXS. Although not a ratings juggernaut, the series showcased some very talented singers, performing some classic tunes from the classic days of the rock and roll era, and always managed to be entertaining....to those who still care about rock and roll, that is.



And Then There Were Six


A favorite on forum boards and blogs across the internet...to those who still care about rock and roll, anyway...many fans were rooting for the likes of Mig, Jordis, Ty, Suzie and Marty to be the one who gets to sing 'What You Need' for a living. However, it was INXS' decision all along, and Fortune's quirky and dangerous style and attitude seemed to better fit the band...and seemed the closest to former lead singer Michael Hutchence, who sadly committed suicide in 1997. Hopefully, Fortune will sidestep those same footsteps.

Within hours of being selected, Fortune and band appeared on several radio stations, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, as well as The Late, Late Show. A song that JD co-wrote with INXS, 'Pretty Vegas' is currently receiving heavy airplay....on those stations that still care about rock and roll.



"Meet The New Boss
Much The Same As The Old Boss"



The band is now complete, and will be releasing a new album in late November, as well as beginning a new world tour in January. Great news....for those who still care about, you know.
