Happy 45th Birthday Michael
To celebrate Michael’s 45th birthday we are delighted to present two new exclusive articles and an unreleased third version of “Deliver Me”.
Jodie Patterson, an Australian freelance reporter living in the USA, caught up with INXS’ Kirk Pengilly at the Penfolds Gala Black Tie Dinner in LA last week. Her interview with Kirk, his personal reflections on Michael and pictures can be found here.
Ian Patterson completes his article on “How Hutch Composed a Song” with the addition of a Middle Version of Deliver Me that links in with our exclusive interview with Michael’s writing partner, Andrew Farriss. This version has never been released so we are grateful to Andrew and INXS for their permission to include it here as part of Michael’s 45th birthday celebrations.
Happy 45th Birthday, Michael. In our hearts and minds you will always stay young.
With love from Susie, Mario, Jacqui and Ian.
