Tina Hutchence speaks about her brother Michael Hutchence of INXS

Jun 18, 2019 2196

Description:

Recently, I was fortunate to have Tina Hutchence in the studio with me to discuss her second book about her brother, called Michael: My Brother, The Lost Boy of INXS w/ Jen Jewel Brown. It was released in Europe September of 2018 and will be available for purchase in the USA October 2019. But, it can be purchased online now.

Michael: My Brother, The Lost Boy of INXS is an excellent book. Tina really paints a picture that gives an insight into who Michael Hutchence was. Quite a different Michael Hutchence than we heard about in the tabloids. Tina did an exceptional job doing the detective work to fill in holes and answer questions she had about Michael. She also did an incredible job figuring out and sharing as much as she could about Michael's last 24-48 hours.

Michael: My Brother, The Lost Boy of INXS also discusses his relationship with his band and answers many questions we may have had about Michael Hutchence.

I apologize for sounding fanboy at times during my conversation with Tina. She was amazing and shared so much about the book, Michael and things we did not know in the INXS story. I found myself wrapped up in this book a few times and had to force myself to set it down. It's an excellent read. Thank you for listening!
