Happy holidays from all of us here at INXSweb.com! We wish you
all the best during this festive season and well wishes for a happy new
INXS have wrapped up a successful UK tour with Blondie following their

frontman's 1999 solo venture.

It is with immense grief and deep sorrow that I announce the passing of an amazing person and our dearest friend, Kelland Hutchence, Michael's adoring Dad, who lost a battle with cancer today, Thursday 12th December, 2002 at 6:35 pm, Sydney time.
Please pray for his dear wife Susie, his son Rhett whom he loved so well, Tina whom he never stopped loving, and his dear grand children, including precious Tiger who will always have fond childhood memories of times with her precious Grand Daddio.
God give him eternal peace and rest.
Love and Peace to you all, Ian.
