Michael Hutchence Wins 1st MAX Legends Poll

Michael Hutchence has upset Freddie Mercury to take out the first MAX Legends Poll.

The former INXS frontman beat out the Queen ringmaster for the title of Greatest Frontman of All Time.

The Australian music legend also beat out other fancied names in the list, including Robert Plant, Bon Scott, Mick Jagger and Jon Bon Jovi.

The biggest surprise in the MAX audience-voted countdown, however, was Midnight Oil frontman, Peter Garrett, not even placing in the top 20 – coming in at number 23.
