Michael Hutchence Net Worth $1 Million

Michael Hutchence was born to Kelland Hutchence, a Sydney businessman, and Patricia (Kennedy) Hutchence, a make-up artist. He had a twelve years older half-sister, Tina, on his mother’s side, and a younger brother, Brett. The family moved a a lot because of his father’s job, so Michael spent part of his childhood in Hong Kong, where he attended Beacon Hill School, followed by King George V School. He filled his time with various extracurricular activities, including Boy Scouts, fencing, kick boxing, and judo; he was also a talented swimmer, and won several trophies for diving.

The family returned to Sidney when he was twelve, settling in Belrose. He was enrolled in Davidson High, where he met Andrew Farriss, who would become his best friend and collaborator. Shortly after, he joined Farriss’s band Doctor Dolphin, however, their collaboration was cut short because Hutchence’s parents separated, and he moved to California with his mother for a time. When he returned to Sydney, they finally had a chance to start a proper band, and in 1977, The Farriss Brothers was formed. Besides Hutchence and Andrew Farriss, the line-up contained Jon Farris on drums, Tim Farris on lead guitar, Garry Beers (a band mate from Doctor Dolphin) on bass guitar, and Kirk Pengilly on guitar and saxophone.

The band was soon noticed by Midnight Oil’s manager, Garry Morris, who couldn’t represent them at the time, but instead recommended them to another manager, Chris Murphy. At his time, they also changed their name to INXS, because of their excessive stage performance. They released their first, self-titled album in 1980, which achieved gold status in Australia, spawning the hit single “Just Keep Walking”. The band worked very hard during the next couple of years, releasing a new album on yearly basis; “Underneath the Covers”, which also achieved gold status, followed by “Shabooh Shoobah” in 1982. The latter was released internationally, charting on the US Billboard 200, and achieving double platinum status. It produced hits such as “The One Thing”, “To Look at You”, “Black and White”, and “Don’t Change”. “The One Thing” gained even greater popularity when it was featured on the soundtrack for the video game “Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories” in 2006. The next four albums were also released to great success and multiple-platinum status, which contributed in good part to Hutchence’s creativity, lyrics, and stage presence.

Parallel with his music career, Hutchence also appeared in several feature films. In 1986, he starred in the Australian drama “Dogs in Space” alongside Saskia Post and Nique Needles. He also played the famous English poet, Percy Bysshe Shelly, in “Roger Corman’s Frankenstein Unbound” (1990), which also starred John Hurt, Raul Julia, and Bridget Fonda. Hutchence left his mark on the movie industry not only as an actor, but also as a songwriter, since many of his songs with INXS were featured in films such as the cult classic “Donnie Darko” (2001) and the award-winning “Monster” (2003).

Regarding Hutchence’s private life, it received almost as much attention as his work, especially his relationships with famous high-profile women such as singer Kylie Minogue and supermodel Helena Christensen. He left behind one child, a daughter, from his relationship with television presenter Paula Yates. Hutchence died during the Australian leg of the band’s 1997 world tour, ruled as suicide due to depression, and alcohol and drug abuse. It is estimated that Hutchence earned about $60 million during his music and film career. However, according to reports, his net worth was not more than $40 000 at the time of his death, afterwards amounting to amost $1 million when his assets were liquidated.

1 Went to school with Nastassja Kinski.
2 When he presented Oasis with a "Best Video" award at the 1996 BRIT Awards, Noel Gallagher pointed at him onstage and declared "Has-beens shouldn't be presenting awards to Gonna-be's". This comment deeply hurt Hutchence, who responded by adding the background vocals, "We're Better than Oasis", to the chorus of the INXS single, "Elegantly Wasted".
3 Nick Cave is godfather to his daughter Tiger Lily.
4 Ranked #35 on VH1's 100 Sexiest Artists.
5 INXS won the 1991 Brit Award for International Group.
6 Winner of the 1991 Brit Award for International Male.

#Quote
1 We always thought it strange that nobody was up on that stage playing soul stuff. Maybe people were playing it in their garages, like us, but they always reverted to pure rock when they got on stage.
2 There's something intrinsically Australian about a bunch of brothers and school friends getting together as a band at a very young age and all pulling together as a band at a very young age and all pulling together as mates to make something happen.
3 I know all's fair in love and war but when you go off and try to be by yourself and it ends up on the front page of the press it's frightening, knowing your life is under such scrutiny.
4 I hate it when people lose it, there's nothing left because they're not interesting, they're boring, I hate it, and especially smack, people on smack are the most boring in the world.
5 Actually, I find it embarrassing being a pop star. I prefer it when people just treat me like anybody else, although occasionally there is a side of me, which is indulgent and I expect certain things because of my position. It's one of the perks.
6 You know sometimes I just want to curl up on stage and lie there for a while - it's weird.
7 We'd have to suck away at oxygen canisters between songs just so that we could keep playing.
8 There is an integrity to INXS, in the music, that makes it worthwhile.
9 Racism is essentially natural, it's old fashioned it's an evolutionary phase that we're going through. Ultimately it won't exist.
10 It's just as difficult to live in a self-made hell of privacy as it is to live in a self-made hell of publicity.
11 I turn over a lot of money for a lot of people and I'm the smallest fish in it.
12 I think there is a certain sensibility to someone you are attracted to and when it rubs off that's good.
13 I still haven't come to grips with our success.
14 I manage to scrape together a private life, despite the press.
15 I get pretty terrified, to be honest, when I'm on tour. You really have to muster a lot of ego to go our there, which I find rather draining.
16 Fame makes me feel wanted and loved, anybody wants that.
17 Every actor I know wants to be a pop star.
18 But we got up there and decided to stick to this mix of power chords and funk and that's where it really started for us. In having the courage to take that decision. To take a gamble not just with our music but our lives.
19 But then, you know, I'm very happy, I've got to this stage in my life and I'm not dead. I haven't got married and divorced and done all that palimony business, you know all that mess.
20 The English press, are so nosy, and the English seem to love that eavesdropping.
21 I've never tried to emulate anyone. I've never idolised people, I prefer instead to get off on attitudes.
22 I know who I am and what I do.
23 I don't think success arrives and you're suddenly happy. It's not like that. If people think that they'll be very disappointed.
24 Women are incredible in groups together. Terrifying. Men have nothing on them.
25 I look at Jagger and the like and if I see a good attitude I'll admire it but I wouldn't copy their style.
26 I love being famous. It's like a totally Freudian thing - it makes me feel wanted and loved and noticed. Anyone would want that, wouldn't they?
