Epi 129 Make Time Stop: Michael Hutchence 25 Years ago Today

November 21, 2022
Michael Kelland Hutchence was born on January 22nd, 1960, and passed way too soon on November 22nd, 1997 soared through his 37 years like a comet brimming with energy, radiance, and vitality touching the hearts, minds, and souls of millions.
Often compared to Jim Morrison and Mick Jagger, Michael carved a unique pathway with his baritone range, sinewy dance moves, and charismatic stare that made those who copped his glare feel like the only person in the room.
Women loved him, men wanted to be him and fans simply wanted to dance to his versatile, vocal delivery that was admired by contemporaries Bono, Michael Stipe, Simon Le Bon, Billy Corgan, and Bruce Springsteen through to those influenced by him namely, The Killers, Arcade Fire, 1975, Eskimo Joe and Matchbox Twenty.
So today we commemorate, celebrate and reiterate the greatness, kindness, and uniqueness that was Michael Hutchence. Forever rest in peace.
