"Behind The Music Remastered: Michael Hutchence" VH-1 Classic

When Michael Hutchence died the world lost a rock star, his fans lost a man they each felt they knew and his daughter and his partner Paula lost the centre of their worlds.

Three years later Paula was dead too and their beloved daughter Tiger Lily was soon living with Sir Bob Geldof and her half-sisters in London.

Meanwhile Michael's last solo album was being finished in Los Angeles by producer Danny Saber, but unknown to him there was more of Michael's music yet to be found.

In this update of the original "Behind The Music" episode, which told the complete story of Michael's musical career and the many twists and turns in his private life, we hear again from his family and friends and bring the story up to date – with the joys and sorrows of the intervening years – the undiscovered recordings, the tragedy of Paula Yates' last days, the undying love of his family and fans and the musical legacy this extraordinary man left behind when he was so tragically taken from us in a lonely Sydney hotel room.

The Michael Hutchence program is scheduled to be aired first in the US on Saturday December 18th, 2010 at 9pm ET/PT on VH-1 Classic.
