This book encompasses the LIFE of Michael, not just his music... it brings us to a better understanding of Michaels struggles and life experiences as a whole. It is a FABULOUS book! True fans will not only embrace the knowledge of this author, they will also be given an opportunity to become aquainted with the man "behind" the music. If you want to dig deeper... This is the book for you!

This book wasted an opportunity to review the magnificent musical career of Michael Hutchence and instead chose to focus on his social life thru the late 90's. Fans who supported the band from the 80's will be frustrated by this and if you're not a fan why would you buy the book ? So fans don't like it and no-one else has any reason to buy it ...

In June 1983 at the age of 15 while INXS was on tour in the US, I started a relationship with the 23 year old Michael Hutchence. We worked on many songs together and ideas for movies that were used to promote the songs. I was discovered by Joe Elliott of Def Leppard in May of '83 while they were on tour promoting Pyromania. Mutt Lange soon became involved after I started making up the song Pour Some Sugar On Me. I used what I knew at the time and that was Aerosmith's Toys in the Attic album..."Step inside, WALK THIS WAY". Mutt Lange not only produced the previous albums for Def Leppard, but also for the Aussie band AC/DC and brought INXS to meet me.

Soon Bob Geldof was also brought to meet me, another artist which Mutt Lange had produced albums for (The Boomtown Rats). INXS worked with Geldof and Midge Ure on the Aussie version of Live Aid (Oz for Africa). Bob even decided to name his daughter Peaches after I told him my mother was from Georgia and why I used the lyrics "You've got the PEACHES, I've got the cream" in PSSOM. To help cover for our relationship, models and actresses were hired to play the role of Hutch's girlfriends. Elle started hanging around in '84 while Victoria Secrets was started (named not only for Queen Victoria's secret affair but also for my childhood English penpal). It was with Egyptian movie producer Dodi Fayed that Hutch gave me the nickname Heavenly Haarani Tiger Lily for the poet and scholar Hammad al-Harrani of Harran, Turkey near the Tigres. Paula became involved in the coverup early on, even pretending to flirt with Hutch in an '80s interview while married to Bob.

I am the "Amy" in the INXS song Reckless Ways..."I'll take a chance with Amy, might look good on the floor." Though they claim the song was written before 1983, the song was written in conjunction with the movie script for Reckless. INXS loaned a song for the soundtrack.
