HUTCHENCE REMEMBERED

A year after his death, INXS star Michael Hutchence was remembered Sunday by 250 fans and family members at a chapel in the Sydney suburb of North Ryde, Australia. Hutchence’s brother Rhett paid tribute, a friend read a poem and a solo saxophonist played. After the 40-minute service, Hutchence’s father, Kel Hutchence, unveiled a memorial on the grounds of the Northern Suburbs Memorial Gardens and Crematorium to mark the life of the singer, who committed suicide in a Sydney hotel room last Nov. 22 at the age of 37. “He was a good and loving man and an excellent musician,” his father said.
