talk2court in Onstage_1 asks: Hi Marty!!! Do you know what you're going to be doing yet?
MSNLive_Star says: Now I am taking the momentum from the show and am going to release a record and i am going to the opening act for the INXS world tour. As my runner up prize when they said "JD you won" they aslo asked me to open up the world tour. That was a testament to
MSNLive_Star says: Even though I took second place they still incorporated me into their future which is brilliant. Now say Jordis, myself and the new INXS toured together that's kinds like Rock Star on the road and I think that is a smart move.
madmaestro62 in Onstage_1 asks: Marty, LOVE the fact you stayed true to yourself the entire time. What singer/band has influenced you the most?
MSNLive_Star says: Hi mad. i would say the singer who influence me the most is Beck. I say Beck becaude he has records that are hard rocking and records that are groovy. I love the fact he can get away with anything and be creative and it connects with people.

MSNLive_Star says: Nirvana has always kicked my ass.
Highnotediva1 in Onstage_1 asks: Marty - You have an amazingly intense artistry. The likes of which I have seen very few times in my 30+ yr. career as a singer. Were you always so intense and focused?
MSNLive_Star says: Hi diva. I think I have just gotten intense from the hsow. My first performances I was intense but dramatic with my body. But kind of taking INXS's critiques and dave's words of wisdom I have tried to direct it with my eyes
MSNLive_Star says: or a big note at the the end of a song. The intensity has now grown through a different delivery.
LV2NLRVixen in Onstage_1 asks: Dave Navarro loves ya and I could tell he meant it when he said.. Call me lets jam... Think you two might ever get together and do any music.

RJsheare in Onstage_1 asks: It looked as though that you and JD had become admirers of each others talent by the end of the contest, true?
MSNLive_Star says: definitely.
MSNLive_Star says: I think we both saw a lot of ourselves in each other. It was interesting that we dconveyed that in different way. Like YingYang. JD is like the outspoken old school rock star.
MSNLive_Star says: very mysterious and full of drama.
MSNLive_Star says: i am more introverted and i save the drama for the stage. I portrayed my talent in a different way but when it boild down we are the same.
MSNLive_Star says: An interesting thing is in week 2 of the show JD and I had this moment, we were sitting poolside and we thought we woul dbe the final two. We laughed and said on the final night we will share a glass of wine in the backyard.
