a long, long time ago…
one day the intoxicating aroma of roses filled my room and each time the summer breeze gently stroked the trees in the garden, the open door let in the heavy scent of lilac... From the corner of the sofa, through the chink of golden light, in the middle of the room, on an abnormally big screen, I saw you. The beautiful figure of the musician with parted lips and intensively bright eyes. I was overcome by a strange feeling of anxiety. I knew that I was standing before a man whose very personality was so fascinating that it was bound to swallow my whole being, all of my soul, and start to fill me up with a completely new kind of life. Life that I would start to experience in a way unknown to me. I knew that your personality and music would give my mundane activities the charm that I had struggled to find and failed.
Michael I wish I had been to your concert - I was too young.
To this alternate reality in which you exist now, I send kisses on your birthday and every day. ❤
You lived your life the way you wanted and were an inspiration to many.
Hope to see you again when the stars fall from the sky.
Till then, take care.
I keep thinking about you and I feel you deep in my heart. I see you while staring at the sky, the trees and the sun: for me you are everywhere and your music is the perfect soundtrack of my life. No pain today but so much joy, the same joy you brought to the entire world with your voice. An angels' chour in heaven is singing your songs, I wish I was there with you to hug you and thank you. Love, Cristina.
I am soaking in the ambiance of the Northern Suburbs Crematorium as I write this, your face, through the plaque on your memorial, gracing my presence.
Needless to say, we all miss you like crazy. Sorry to hear of the passing of INXS manager Chris Murphy. Thank you guys for creating the good times.
I wish you a great 61st birthday in Heaven! Thanks for your great music that we still love to listen to and enjoy! So happy birthyday and Shine Like it Does! xxx

I am stopping by to say hello. A long time fan of Michael Hutchence and INXS . Just wanted to send love to the friends and family who knew him best. Stay strong and know that we miss him and remember his beautiful words and voice. He was one of the best performers I have had the privilege to see live. May he Rest In Peace and the music play on.
Hello and greetings from Poland,
Due to lockdown I was watching more youtube videos than usual - mostly music of my youth-the 80ties. For many on this planet it' s the best music ever- many talented young men composed hits just like on a production line.
INXS is always on my " to listen list".
A few days ago I was wondering how Michael Hutchens-sexiest rockstar of the 80ties- could look like today -as a middle age man. After short "googling" I learned that he d' died in 1997.
I cannot remember that I've heard about it.
In 1997 I was living between Germany and my homeland Poland , and we had no this kind of western "gossip press " . I knew nothing about Michael's privat life- for me he was just a superb front man, singer of INXS.
I remember in 1991 I was hearing an audio cassette "Graetest hits "on my 20 hours holiday bus travell to Spain - I' ve bought the cassette on a black market in post communist Poland. "By my side " was my favorite, and I was hearing this song again and again.
Anyway owing to internet I' ve learned something about Michael' s life, his famous girl friends, family, and last years as father . It inspired me to write something , a kind of poem -maybe someone like it.
I cry bitter tears, didn' t know you 're gone
You spent not enough time here...
Remember you singing „ Need you tonight”...
That night in November, no one at your side
at the point of no return...?
The final numbers 524 -new and last sensation,
mystified for ever...
Wherever your spirit might be now,
don' t miss to taste and smell -
a glass of bordeaux wine , a ripe olive
and a beautiful girl-in a lavender field
telling you -„Never tear us apart” .
The time slips away, elegantly wasted
by many , but not you-
-you lived your life in excess ,with passion
giving love to family and friends ,
sharing your music with us.
I would like to disappear for a while
and occur in your perfect universe
just to thank you for being here ...
Wishing you lots of Love and Happiness on this special day of yours.
For me...it all started with "What You Need" back in 1984 at a
staff Christmas party. Today, "I" celebrate you for giving us so much of your precious time. Baby Don't Cry. I'm wishing you well today.
Happy Birthday Michael.
Sending you virtual hugs to keep you warm....
