Episode 98: R.I.P. Shane Warne, from your mates INXS

Updated: Mar 13, 2022

It’s with a heavy heart that the world mourn the loss of Australia’s answer to Michael Jordan or Babe Ruth. Cricketer Shane Keith Warne (passed away on Friday March 4th from a sudden heart attack at the age of only 52 in Thailand where he was holidaying at the time). 

With 708 wickets in the difficult art of leg spin bowling, Shane managed to make the long- forgotten art of leg spin bowling sexy again... so much so that Elton John and Mick Jagger wanted to be him and Ed Sheeran, Roger Federer, Tiger Woods and Coldplay’s Chris Martin adored his skill and friendship. 

Bold, brash and proudly bogan (Google it), Shane lived a colourful life on and off the field, where he regularly mixed with the “big end of town and celebrities”. His love and respect for INXS and Michael Hutchence was well known and they mixed regularly when both the band and team were touring in the same city. 

So, for the portion of Access All Areas of fans unfamiliar with him (particularly North America), we pay tribute in song with INXS tracks that serve as a soundtrack to his life and perennial love we have for him in our hearts! 

This episode contains a interview with Tim Farriss, paying his tribute to Shane.

R.I.P Shane. The world shall miss you. Not Enough Time.

Love and peace. ✌️
