I remember being really upset about this. He had a beautiful voice. So senseless. But he was really going downhill.

Thanks for taking the time to remember, OP. I’m all choked up.

a cautionary tale about the dangers of auto erotic asphyxiation. Kids don't try this at home.

Michael Hutchence went to an ordinary suburban high school where, I'm sure, he was encouraged by a teacher like Mr G.

R10 - I wonder what the “G” stands for . . . ?

Based on my independent research LBJ was responsible.

So sad, too bad he got tangled up with Paula Yates.

It is sad about Michael and his life for his last couple of years and then the circus of his death. In 1992 he was out drinking in Denmark with Helena Christensen and he got into an argument with a cab driver he got punched in his face and fell back onto the road. He was knocked out and had blood coming from his mouth and ears from the moment he was never the same he had lost all his sense of smell and taste, which contributed to him taking more drugs and drinking to cope.

I remember seeing how he so looked dirty with greasy hair and unkempt compared to just a few years before. It had to be his brain injury because let’s face it no person in their right mind wouldn’t leave Helena for Paula Yates. It’s just sad all around.

Auto erotic asphyxiation.

Nah, he wouldn’t have done better with Helena C. another old slapper hanging outside of yachts for any invite onboard.

His death was very sad and condolences to his family, but I found him insufferable as a performer and wasn’t floored by the news.

One of the best things he did for the gays was help cultivate Kylie Minogue's sexier image. They dated between 1989 and 1991.

He always had a dead eyes and looked empty and alone. Was there some childhood trauma?

He was very hot but he has crazy eyes. His smiles were always forced. Deeply unhappy person.

He was half-caste-Irish.

I read on here that Helena moved on to Bono or Sting, but I cannot recall which one.

Tragic? Hyperbole much?

Killed OP? He committed suicide (whether accidentally or not - suicide).

Paula Yates was gorgeous with longer hair.

by Anonymousreply 33November 28, 2022 12:20 AM

Helena was a proto Gisele Bundchen…so homely that she’s considered a beauty.

I heard the rumors about auto erotic asphyxiation…allegedly David Carradine died in a similar fashion. He also had something inserted in his rectum…

INXS was a great band and Michael Hutchence was a great performer. Saw them twice live, the first time they opened for The Go-Go's! I was sad when he died.

R11 the “G” stands for Gregson - Greg Gregson.

by Anonymousreply 36November 28, 2022 12:29 AM

I agree with above poster that the brain injury he suffered from a punch in which he lost his sense of smell and taste and took drugs to manage it was the trigger to the spiral to his demise.

by Anonymousreply 37November 28, 2022 2:56 AM

R34 of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder but I have to say that I’ve never read heard Helena Christensen described as “homely” before.

So unattractive! I’m surprised that she let herself be seen in public!

And R34, you’re obviously amazing looking, right?

I saw INXS live twice. Michael Hutchence live on stage was like sex on a stick. One of the sexiest performances and performers I’ve ever seen.

R20 It’s my favorite INXS song, too. Thanks for posting.
