JOE meets... INXS frontman Ciaran Gribbin
From a drunken house party to being on stage with INXS, Ciaran Gribben has had a pretty interesting career to date

From a drunken house party to being on stage with INXS, Ciaran Gribbin has had a pretty interesting career to date.

Derry man Ciaran Gribbin has made the transition from being a hopeful musician to standing on stage with one of the biggest rock bands in the world, and all from playing a quick tune on the couch at a house party.

Gribbin's music pedigree isn't in question of course, as he wrote a few songs with Paul Okenfold for Madonna (and all he has to show for it is a Grammy nomination), has written soundtracks for movies, and used to perform under the name Joe Echo, in case you're wondering where you know the name from.

He sat down to talk with JOE about making the jump to INXS frontman, living in Australia and even gave us tips on how to become a rock star ourselves...anyone having a house party this weekend?

While you're here...


Why not hit play on the video below to let funnyman Fred Cooke woo you with his sexy French accent, Dara Dynamite ditches the Speedos to become a Kingsman, Mayo band Flat Out put the woe of the All-Ireland Final behind them to perform the Magic Cover and Justine Stafford takes to the streets to find a date for the Debs.

We also caught up with the cast of Kingmsan: The Golden Circle – Taron Egerton and Mark Strong – as well as the stars of new Irish film Maze – Barry Ward and Nidge himself, Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (and his wonderful hat).

It's all jam-packed into this week's episode of The JOE Show, so what are you waiting for?
