IRON MAIDEN Guitarist ADRIAN SMITH Writing Music With INXS Singer

December 1, 2010

J.D. Fortune, the Canadian singer who is back fronting the Australian rock band INXS on the road, told the QMI Agency in a recent interview that he has been writing tunes with IRON MAIDEN guitarist Adrian Smith, and that one of his songs has been picked up by producer Jerry Bruckheimer for a movie. No further details are currently available.

As previously reported, Smith has joined forces with three members of SIKTH — including dreadlocked frontman Mikee W. Goodman — along with members of MURDER ONE and VACANT STARE to form a new "metal supergroup" dubbed THE PRIMAL ROCK REBELLION. The band was originally supposed to make its live debut on Saturday, January 15 in High Wycombe at Bucks Student Union, but that show has since been canceled.
