I still have my vinyls to remind me of another time, more easy, simple and funny.
RIP my dear Michael. Your songs and presence made us what we became.
Fico me fazendo tantas peguntas.
Por que você ficou sozinho?Por que não não saiu daquele quarto e correu para algum amigo, família? Alguém que pudesse impedi-ló de fazer mal à você mesmo Michael?
Você se foi nos deixando órfãos da sua alegria, seu carisma, sua música. Dói saber como tudo acabou.
Que você tenha encontrado a paz nos braços do Criador meu anjo.
Que você descanse em paz.
Flash foreword to 1997. By then I was twenty six. When I learned of Michael's death, it felt like the entire world stopped. I was in shock, then fell into deep sadness.
I will be 50 next month. I dont know why, but I have been so sad for the past 2 or 3 weeks...even shedding a tear as I write this. My sadness is in the loss of the entire world, in not experiencing the many hours of happiness INXS, specifically Michael, gave us. His smile, his eyes, his laughter, yes that sweet lisp you mentioned Ms Tina..his words, talent...the list is endless.
But what hurts my heart even more deeply, is the fact that his beautiful daughter was robbed (literally) of everything left of her father, his memory, his work, and even his personal belongings. It shatters my heart to know she didn't get to hold his leather jackets, smell him on his t-shirts, wear his jewelry. It is such an incredibly tragic story. I wish something could be done.
I pray for Michael, Tiger, you Tina, I pray his parents are with him again, and I pray for Rhett. I pray Michele and Helena know how much he loved them.
I have so many "ifs" as I'm sure many people who loved him does.
I hope and pray, (if there is a Heaven) we will all unite as friends and family. But as silly as this sounds, that I will FINALLY get to meet Michael. After nearly 40 years of being a faithful fan, I will give him a bone crushing hug!
I am in the process of collecting INXS items, so I can share it all with my ten-year old daughter. I want to make a time capsul, and include INXS. I have adored INXS since 1982, and will love Michael forever. Twenty four years later, it is still so raw, and regrettable. Please don't stop sharing with us. Please consider a 30th memorial if not up to a 25th. He brought such happiness to so many people, may his memory be eternal!!
I saw them in 1987, one of my first concerts and it was one the BEST concert performances I've seen.
What a loss to the music world and of course his family, friends and fans.
May Michael's Memory Be Eternal.
I like many other fans are still mourning the loss of such a gifted, intelligent, fun, caring, charismatic man. I often wonder what he would be doing with his music now, if he was still with us.
I would like to share my gratitude with all of Michael’s family, for the great happiness and joy he brought and still brings to my life and millions of others through his amazing music.
We are all truly blessed to have experienced his presence in our lives and will continue to throughout our lives through his music.
God bless you Michael, forever in our hearts. x x
