|Site Credits and Dedication|
Marty Casey This site is dedicated to and inspired by the **amazing** man there on the left, singer, musician and songwriter extraordinaire: Marty Casey. His talent, personality, intelligence and personal integrity have made believers out of all of us. Through discovering Marty on Rock Star: INXS we have regained a passion for rock music and rock singers that had long been dormant in our lives. So for the joy, the intensity, and the excitement he has inspired in us, Marty Casey take a bow. We love every rockin' inch of you. In the words of INXS, "Don't change."
The Staff of MartyCasey.org:
Cindy Klauss, Webmaster, of Panama City Beach, Florida. I am the co-owner of the Web Design firm CYber SYtes, Inc, along with my business partner David Goldflies, former bassist for The Allman Brothers Band. This site is one of the major joys of my life right now. It was built to influence and inspire viewers of Rock Star: INXS to vote for rocker Marty Casey. This site was originally built in a single weekend awaiting the approach of Hurricane Katrina to the Gulf Coast, where I sat in front of my laptop in a flight-or-fight-or-fright mode with the weather channel running 24/7 in the background. Since then MartyCasey.org has become the tempest that has taken over my life! BTW, my favorite rock band is Led Zeppelin and my favorite rock songs are "All Apologies" by Nirvana and "Kashmir" by Led Zeppelin. Oh, and my favorite Marty performance was "Creep" in Week 10, followed closely by the first time we heard "Trees." Email me at webmaster@MartyCasey.org
Amy Coker Pascoe, Site Co-editor, of Spartanburg, South Carolina. Amy was the very first volunteer who responded when I launched MartyCasey.org and has quickly become my right arm. She maintains the Fan Guest Book, provides content, liaisons with Lovehammers and manages to keep me focused when things get out of control. Amy is also very heavily involved in maintaining the site's message board. In Amy's words: "I am 40 and a small business owner since 1999. I am a proud survivor of Necrotizing Fasciitis in March of 1999. I do volunteer work with a local organization called Animal Allies. 'Prevent A Stray - Neuter or Spay!' Favorite musicians: Tom Petty (solo and with The Heartbreakers), Nirvana, U2 - I'm a rock girl at heart and will never change. Favorite RS:INXS moments: 'I, Alone,' 'Lithium,' and Marty's reaction to the Britney Spears song. Marty's talent has reawakened my passion for music and Lovehammers are on the verge of something big - they are a force to be reckoned with." You can email Amy at Amy@MartyCasey.org.

Hammerhead-Grafix Thanks so much to Carolyn (Chayla), Shelly, and Wendy of Hammerhead-Grafix who is running the Fan Art site effective Sept. 2006. This is a big job, and requires a lot of time and effort--time and effort that we could not spare from the main site. This team of loyal fans stepped up and took on this challenging role with enthusiasm.
Huge kudos to Lesley....she knows why.
Special Thanks To:
INXS: Thanks so much to the fabulous band INXS for bringing us Rock Star: INXS and for discovering and introducing us all to Marty Casey. Without this summer reality experience, our lives would have been much less fun and much less musical. Along the way to falling in love with Marty Casey, we also got to know Andrew, Tim, Jon, Kirk and Garry and became re-acquainted with their music--all just icing on a very large cake!
Lovehammers: We love Lovehammers. A big shout out to Dino Kourelis, the rockin' bassist of Lovehammers.com. We couldn't have found a friendlier, cooler dude than Dino to work with in promoting this band. Also thanks to the kind words, smiles and encouragment from both Bob Kourelis and Billy Sawilchik. Thank you for sharing Marty with all of us.
Rock Star: INXS Executive Producer David Goffin: Without Our Producer: Dave, none of this would have been half as good as it was. His attention to detail, determination to focus on the music, and willingness to involve the fan communities turned a potential train wreck of a reality show into the must-see program of the Summer of 2005. Our Producer Dave brought rock and roll to the masses in a grand and exciting way. He should be very proud.
The Casey Family: Bless you all for the kind words and encouragement we have received at MartyCasey.org from many members of the Casey family. You are all such wonderful people, and we really appreciate you sharing your talented son/brother/cousin/nephew etc. with all of us.
