29, 1995 (from Cyber-Sleaze):
is planning a solo career away from his INXS band friends. The 35-year-old
who hit the headlines in Britain over his dubious relationship with television
personality PAULA YATES has been working on a hush-hush record project.
A solo album is to be released early next year and could well have a Cuban
connection. Hutchence, pilloried by many for stealing LIVE AID hero BOB
GELDOF's wife has been recording in London with a host of musicians and
en vogue producers. But fellow members of his Sydney based band INXS will
apparently not be featuring on the album. Says Hutchence, "I have been
trying out various things with a view to a new record. I have been spending
a lot of time in Cuba. I have a great deal of respect for Cuban culture.
I have learned a lot from it."
