His publicist said his family and friends had been 'touched beyond words' by the 'incredible outpouring of love' from fans, adding there were no suspicious circumstances around his death, which was reported to have been caused by heart failure.
A new tell-all documentary charting the final hours of legendary INXS frontman Michael Hutchence will feature the last lyrics the singer ever wrote.
Plushies and Furries is a short documentary film by Rick Castro produced in 2001, which aired as an episode of Sex2K/True Life on MTV in January 2002, and on Channel 5 UK in the summer of 2003.
It "has screened at the American Cinemathéque, Outfest Los Angeles, Frameline San Francisco, the MIX Festival--NYC, the Milan Film Festival, the Montreal Gay Film Festival, the Seattle Gay Film Festival, and the Mardi Gras Film Festival in Sydney".
Just another heart to scared to...,' while the last word is obscured in the trailer, it appeared to read 'beat.' In a statement, producer Mark Llewellyn revealed that the documentary - Michael Hutchence: The Last Rockstar - would be markedly different to the 2014 biopic Never Tear Us Apart. Mark added: 'this is not Michael Hutchence defined by how he died but how he lived: a brilliant musician, a brilliant man, a loving father, a true rock star.'The statement claimed that the documentary takes an in-depth look at Michael's possessions that were kept hidden in bank vaults, including his diary, and the final lyrics.
In the episode Plushies and Furries, a title screen between scenes was added to Rick Castro's original footage that said, "Yote attends his first confurence." This used the registered service mark "Con Furence" in the context of a generic term for a furry-themed convention (in this case, referring to Midwest Fur Fest), and was not referring to the convention hosted annually by The Con Furence Group for which the service mark was registered.Many of furs that participated in the side interviews were told their interviews would be used for a much different type of show, and the artists were similarly lied to by Rick Castro, the producer.For example, Michael Higgs was told his art was going to be used in a special about up-and-coming comic artists.Overall the episode was a sex-based portrayal of the furry subculture that some argue is unfavorable, following quickly on the heels of Vanity Fair's article earlier in the year.The documentary as-aired on MTV in the USA was a censored 20-minute long presentation that lacked any overt pornographic material.
