"I know who I am and what I do" - Michael Hutchence
Macho Cool! Archetypal Showman! Mysterious Musician! Sex on Stage!
The consummate Australian rock god, Michael Hutchence lived a life of showmanship as the founding member, lead singer and lyricist of INXS from 1977 until his death in 1997. Unpredictable, sometimes singing with an alluring whisper, sometimes with a demanding shout, Hutchence entertained audiences around the world with his overtly sexual and super cool performances. His mystique made all the more note-worthy with a string of high-profile romantic liaisons - including with Australia’s own princess of pop Kylie Minogue. He has left behind a legacy of Australian rock anthems - the soundtrack to Australia’s 80s, 90s and 2000s.
