The real story of a complex man whose star is still shining two decades after his death. Michael Hutchence was a superstar, an internationally respected musician and a great bloke. There will never be another one to replace him.

Born into an eccentric and difficult marriage, Hutch grew up in different countries before settling into suburban Sydney. He made friends with Andrew Farriss who provided a surrogate family. Andrew's musicality and Michael's charisma was from the start till the end the basis of INXS.

For five years INXS were single-minded in their pursuit of being the biggest band in the world. When that was achieved Michael felt the need to move away from a strictly pop life and he pushed himself into more challenging areas. That brought him into conflict with the band his band of brothers.

There was also the complication of being a sex god. Michael always led a very hedonistic life - a lot of drugs and sex. While promiscuous, Michael had a great fear of separation and also a great fear of causing hurt. Yet the ends of his relationships were inevitable and messy.
