Recently released in Australia, MICHAEL, My Brother, Lost Boy of INXS is the story of the legendary lead singer of INXS, as remembered by his sister Tina. Michael Hutchence died at only 37 but his fans are legion. He fronted a band that was one of the biggest in the world. Huge through the 1980s across the globe, INXS broke the mold by merging dance and rock with a sexy, infectious romanticism.
Tina adored Michael from the start. From a twelve-year-old holding him in her arms as a newborn, to being his teenage nanny, Tina remained Michael's trusted confidant until his sudden death. Tina's intimate and detailed telling of her brother's story - from faltering teenager with a lisp to raging rock star - blazes with love and adventure, and includes the acquired brain injury that changed everything for Michael. This personal and heartfelt biography reveals the incredible, rollercoaster life of Australia's most enduring superstar and shares the private moments of an adored brother, son and father.
