Sometimes, it's someone we don't ever meet in person, but a famous person - a singer, an artist, a musician, someone like the loved one - our dear Michael. Since that shocking day 17 years ago when Australia, then the rest of the world learned Michael left this life, so much has changed. However, the one thing which remained constant all these years in my life has been a constant love for Michael and his band brothers, INXS music. For that, I thank you all. For so many years, Michael's voice, his written words transformed to beautifully sung lyrics set to music, have been an anchor in my life - celebrating in good times and helping weather bad storms as well. I never was able to see INXS perform live with Michael fronting my favorite band. I was never able to see INXS at all until I dealt with some health issues and a lifelong desire to travel to Australia gave me the opportunity to see the band live seven years ago, then again in the USA three years ago. Yet, I am grateful for you bearing your soul to the world on stage and on camera so people like me could hear you sing on MTV, watch interviews, see concert clips, etc. Never in my wildest dreams did I think two days before my first-born son's 10th birthday, I would be up late planning a party, watching MTV when I heard the news. Shock, grief, devastation, denial, even anger were normal emotions felt over the next few days, weeks and months until I, like so many fans, in many ways, learned to accept what still seems so hard to believe - that we lost someone we loved - Michael. And over the years since this horrific day 17 years ago, we have moved on but never forgotten him. His voice is eternal through the music, through the recordings Michael so generously gave us. Thank you for that, Michael Each year on this date as well as his birthday, so many fans, myself included, pause to celebrate and pay tribute to his life. And although Michael is thought of fondly more than I ever thought imaginable, I want to think of him with gratitude and positivity. Thinking of his family and closest friends, his band of brothers, and all my fellow INXS fans around the world today as we collectively think of Michael. You are truly missed and forever loved, Michael. xx|

A year in which Michael and INXS have been on the lips, in the press, and on TV throughout the world, thanks to the TV series, INXS - Never Tear Us Apart. Hopefully new fans have been enlightened to what a amazing artist Michael was, and still is. And why so many of us long time fans, still continue to love and adore our Hutch. It is hard to think 17 years have gone by since that day that changed everything. Today I am grateful for what Michael has given me, which are amazing INXS friends from near and far, some I have been friends with for over ten years now, some I have met some I am yet to meet. Michael has also given me the pleasure of knowing and sharing special moments with his Band brothers over the past 8 years. I have had the pleasure of holding two Memorial Fan weekends in Sydney to celebrate and remember Michael's life. I hope to do it again in 3 years time. Michael you are and will forever be remembered . You are loved and Missed always. RIP. Aussie xx|

|Comment||17 years ago today, so sad day...
I always miss your smile, Michael.
I wish your soul is calm and happy now for ever.
love you the sweetest man xxx
Just wanted you to know that I miss you and think about you every day. Your music has always been there to help me when I've had a rough day. I lost my Grandad a week ago. He had the soul of a poet, just like you. I'm sure you'll get on famously. You're always in my heart.

|Comment||Almost 17 years but it feels lke you've never ben gone Michael.
I've been inspired by you spiritually and have been through a lot of processes you must have experienced in this former life. It has helped me grow and heal all my wounds, overcome my mistakes.
I'm truly deeply grateful to you for embracing me into your soul.
You'll always be my favourite singer songwriter.
Love to you, your dear family, especially Tiger Lilly, a big hug to all the members of the band who I was lucky enough to meet during a gig in my hometown back in 2011.
Freedom take me deeper xxx
|Comment||Along with Jim Morrison, Michael was the greatest front man of all time. I listen to him all the time and I never tire of his superb voice and utter genius. I still can't believe he's gone.|
|Comment||17 years ago today god held your hand, gave you angel wings and took you to heaven. Little did he know how many hearts would be broken in the process. But he knew those hearts would slowly heal with time, in the knowledge that you were now free. We miss you every day and our love for you is never ending. Our love and thoughts are always with your family and friends. Fly free Michael and forever shine bright, I will always love your precious heart . Karyn|

Michael, you’re our Shining Star, The Messenger, The Loved One who was Heaven Sent. You taught us to have Faith In Each Other. You truly cared about others, led a Wild Life with Good and Bad Times, and kept Searching for the One Thing of What Love Is. You're so much larger than life, and we love to Hear That Sound of your incredible voice, heart-felt lyrics, and unique songs that transcend traditional music.
Regrettably, with fame came the unrelenting thunder and Tiny Daggers of a media storm and personal strife that Cut Your Roses Down, and you’re the one Who Pays The Price. Very few realized you were Just A Man and how much you suffered inside. Tragically, you had Not Enough Time on Earth, as you felt you could not Put The Pieces Back Together of your shattered life and didn’t see the Possibilities other than to Kill The Pain and Slide Away. You prophetically sang in your song, Never Tear Us Apart: “I told you if we could fly, cause we all have wings, but some of us don’t know why”. We hope you were able to Make Your Peace and obtain Freedom Deep within you.
You greatly loved your Beautiful Girl, Tiger, as she was Everything to you. It’s unfortunate that you’re not here to share your life with her.
Michael, you're sadly missed and you will never Disappear in our hearts. All Around, you have made the world a better place with The Gift of your beautiful voice and extraordinary music that’s still Calling All Nations and continues to touch the lives of millions. You will Stay Forever Young and your legacy will live on forever.

We miss you as much as we love you. 17 years gone, but never forgotten. I've been hearing your music a lot lately and at the most unbelievable times. I keep wondering if you have a hand in it. My answer is usually met by another song! I so want to believe it's you. My thoughts are with your family, friends and fans today (Sydney time).
