Thanks to a close friend of mine, I began listening to INXS in High School, I instantly became addicted. High energy, fun, passionate music. It's funny, but I became such a fan that each member became a part of my family! I would talk about them like we'd been friends for years!!!! “Did you hear what Michael said on MTV last night?!”
Finding out about Michaels death was shocking, saddening. I could'nt believe it. My heart went out instantly to the family, the band, but more than that to Tiger Lilly!
I was also sad for all the fans, myself included, to all the music we may miss. Then I realized, putting my Cd copy of “THE SWING & other stories” into the stero, I have a lifetime of music! Songs that, years ago, I sang to as I walked to school everymorning, and songs that I will be singing to for as long as I live!
I cannot wait for the release of Michael's solo album next year....new songs to sing to, and each note will be even more special!!!
Once again Thank You...and God Bless to you and your family!
You showed me how to chase my dreams and you showed me that you can achieve any thing if you show pride, dignity and respect. Thanks for the good times Michael you made a difference in my life.
“we all have wings but some of us don't know why...”
I wish I could express how much Michael Hutchence meant to me and my youth. I, like many others, fell under Michael and INXS' spell after seeing the video for New Sensation on MTV. Maybe it was his eyes, his poetic words, or his beautiful hair...whatever it was it captured me forever. I was never privileged enough to have seen INXS in concert, but that never kept me from being one of their greatest fans. My cat is even named Hutchence in Michael's honor. (My cat is 8 and 1/2 years old) I was lucky enough not to hear that Michael had passed away on t.v., but I heard it from my mother who woke me up to tell me about his death. I cried for the next week, wore my pajamas that whole weekend, and even now I still cry sometimes for a life cut short that was so in bloom. He was my inspiration to be a better writer, a better friend, a better love, and of course to be a bold, exciting person. I always admired Hutchence's ability to take chances and to stand out in a crowd. Some of my only comforts in his death have been that I have a wonderful Austrailian friend named Chelse who kept me updated by sending me all of the magazines that were done in tribute to his death. I cherish all of my INXS Memorabilia, Videos and CD's, and I guess after 11 years of being a fan that's really all I have. I am so proud to say that Michael Hutchence gave me so much, and he inspired me to believe in myself. My quote in my senior yearbook in high school said, “Sometimes you kick and sometimes you get kicked.” Thank you for this beautiful website and for having a son who was such a wonderful person, talented artist, and his words continue to be an inspiration to my life.
Michael's music, either through INXS or solo projects, has always been a source of enjoyment, love and medicine for my soul. I have been extremely fortunate to have been touched by his musical talents and have had my soul healed my his music. This site does not only give fans like myself the opportunity to remember this incredible musician, it allows every fan of music to celebrate in the life of an incredible man. Kelland, thank you for using this site to immortalize Michael - a more than fitting tribute to a more than wonderful human being.
