THE members of the rock band INXS were making their way through a sound check at this city's Paramount Theatre on Monday when a guy, wearing his cap sideways and sipping Corona from a plastic cup, meandered on stage. The dude went straight for a microphone. He hooted a few times, muttered some old Doors lyrics and then took a snapshot of himself with his cellphone's camera. No one called security -- turns out it wasn't just some random fan. INXS, meet J.D. Fortune, your new lead singer.

THREE messy-tressed, black-clad boys in studded belts nervously stand on stage as a cluster of starry-eyed blonds in bustiers scream for them from the crowd below. They're veritable nobodies.
