Michael Hutchence

The ill-fated frontman for '80s pop sensations INXS, Michael Hutchence was born January 22, 1960 in Sydney, Australia; raised primarily in Hong Kong, he made his professional debut singing in a commercial for an area toy company at the age of eight. The family returned to Sydney in 1972. While in high school, Hutchence joined keyboardist Andrew Farriss and keyboardist Garry Gary Beers in a group which would ultimately become INXS with the subsequent additions of guitarist/saxophonist Kirk Pengilly and two more Farriss brothers, guitarist Tim and drummer Jon. Debuting in 1980 with the single "Simple Simon," INXS became Australian superstars with the 1983 release of their third album, Shabooh Shoobah, also scoring a pair of minor U.S. hits with the singles "Don't Change" and "The One Thing." 1984's The Swing topped the charts Down Under on the strength of the Nile Rodgers-produced smash "Original Sin," and with 1985's Listen Like Thieves, the band's muscular funk-rock sound found international favor with the hit "What You Need."

In the wake of 1987's Kick, which launched no less than four American Top Ten hits -- the chart-topping "Need You Tonight," "Devil Inside," "New Sensation," and "Never Tear Us Apart" -- the charismatic, swaggering Hutchence emerged as a major heartthrob, and later that year he made his film debut in the Aussie rock & roll movie Dogs in Space. In 1989, he also stepped out with a solo project, Max Q.INXS' long-awaited follow-up to Kick, X, finally appeared in 1990, but failed to match the success of its predecessor. Subsequent efforts like 1992's Welcome to Wherever You Are and 1993's Full Moon, Dirty Hearts also fared badly, and the group spent the mid-'90s out of the spotlight, during which time Hutchence became a tabloid fixture for his affair with British TV host Paula Yates, then married to Bob Geldof. INXS finally resurfaced in 1997 with Elegantly Wasted, but on November 22 Hutchence was found dead in his Sydney hotel room, the victim of an apparent hanging. His long-in-the-works solo debut was posthumously issued in late 1999. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

There is no one like Micheal so sexy so amazing crowd pleaser. And did please lots. We miss your live proformance but continue too very much enjoy the voice and sounds of INXS. TA
The anny of his death is this Saturday! One of a kind in my eyes!!!! A talent harassed by countless demons!!! Oh Michael ❤️
I miss him, he had a very versatile voice. i remember him catching my attention when I first saw INXS video-One Thing. At the time I was into Bands across the pond, as I thought they were very vogue, in style, worldly. I couldn't take my eyes off of him. Especially in Don't Change. i miss them performing. There isn't anyone that can ever fill his shoes or imitate his voice~unique .
Rip, Gone way before his time. He had such a great voice and was a great front man too.

Great voice and Front man! Your music reminds me of high school and the best of those days! You are missed.
Yet another sad loss before his time, and yet he was ahead of his time.
Man, We miss your voice and awesome talents!! RIP Michael...
RIP Hutch we will remember you --> :D
Hmm, I always heard it was "erotic asphyxiation " gone very bad. But maybe that's because it's a much more salacious story.
Certain bands like the Doors and especially INXS, just aren't the same without their lead singer. The mysterious death of Michael Hutchence was also the death of INXS.

I don't think so. He was really depressed. He talked to his good friend Paul Hewson, and the two agreed that suicide wasn't the way out. Then, he committed suicide. The song "Stuck in a Moment That You Can't Get Out Of" was written about feelings towards suicide (an argument against). Paul kicks himself for not talking to his friend, knowing about the depression. He feels guilty that his good friend took his life while he stood by and watched.

Did they ever figure out if there was foul play? He certainly had one of those enjoyable voices... talented soul.
