Inspired by Sir Paul, John Paul Jones, and James Jamerson, Garry Gary Beers anchored the mega-platinum INXS with a distinctly soulful approach, working the pocket with melodic motifs that fueled the Aussie ensemble’s signature hits.
Doubling on upright and guitar, outside of INXS Beers collaborated with the late Scott Weiland, Sean Kelly and His Absent Friends, and Ciaran Gribbin, among others.
Garry’s weapon of choice is usually the Fender Precision, though he did wield a vogue, functional Steinberger XL in the equally fashionable early ’80s.
