Episode 135: Michael vs Murphy

Updated: Jan 26

As we commemorate the two-year anniversary of INXS Manager Chris Murphy’s passing we simultaneously pay homage to what would have been Michael Hutchence’s 63rd birthday with a deep dive into their professional but often volatile relationship.

In 1995 Chris severed ties after 15 years of committed and trailblazing stewardship of INXS precipitated by what seemed an untenable relationship with Michael.

Both the alpha male type bulls in a paddock, their collective ambitions pushed INXS to the top of world music however creatively they often clashed particularly after INXS’ game-changing performance of the KICK album.

So today we examine the relationship of two dearly departed icons that date wise, cross-over this January 2023.

Love and Peace ✌️
