The Australian pub rock group INXS first got together in 1977 as The Farriss Brothers. They changed their name to INXS in 1980 and signed a record deal in Australia. In 1983, they got an American record contract. The group became internationally famous by the start of the '90s.
Hutchence gained a reputation as a ladies man with a flamboyant, arrogant wild streak. He dated Kylie Minogue, Michelle Bennett and Paula Yates.
Hutchence died on November 22, 1997. It was ruled a suicide, but there was evidence that he was practicing autoerotic asphyxiation, which involves cutting off oxygen for sexual pleasure.
After losing Hutchence, INXS continued with various guest singers through the end of the 1990s, and in 2005, they found their new lead singer through their reality show Rock Star: INXS, which promised the gig to the winner. J.D. Fortune got the prize and became their permanent singer.
