Interesting Facts

#Fact
1He is the composer of 90% of the music that INXS structure, both album cuts and singles' b-sides. He also plays keyboards, harmonica, guitar and percussion. Historically, he has spent hours on the road in hotel rooms creating sounds on a small cassette player and cataloging them for later use when composing music for INXS.
2He is the second eldest of four children.
3The Farriss Brothers formed in 1977 and 20 years later remained unchanged in their line-up as INXS - a definite rarity in the music industry.
4As with all the members of INXS, he has always maintained a busy pace with projects outside the band. As a songwriter and producer he has performed on countless awarding winning projects and with a diverse range of artists.
5Has written songs for Yothu Yindi.
6Lead songwriter, keyboardist & guitarist of INXS. He and Michael Hutchence penned nearly all the bands hits, and this was a point of friction between them and the other band members, as royalties went to Farriss and Hutchence, making them wealthier than the other band members.
7Brother of Tim Farriss and Jon Farriss.


Quotes

#Quote
1My problem is I don't like traveling to play. I love traveling for holiday, and I love playing music if I'm able to go home every night, but I don't like combining the two. You never get to stay in one place long enough to get immersed in the culture.
