One of my favourite frontmen, Michael Hutchence on INXS’ Elegantly Wasted Tour at Wembley Arena in London, UK on June 18, 1997.
Twenty years ago today, November 22, 1997, Michael Hutchence was found dead in his Sydney Ritz-Carlton hotel room. He was 37 years old. You might recall on this day last year I posted a portrait I made of Michael (and bandmate, Tim Farriss) and told the story of Michael asking for a copy; sadly, he died the day after I printed the photograph. Here on Instagram, I posted an open call to any family members of his who might be interested in receiving a copy. I’m happy to say that a family member did respond and the portrait is now in good hands. Stay young Michael. We miss you.
