“We can be heroes just for one day”
David Bowie Heroes

Lori Majewski
“Michael [Hutchence] is hands down one of the greatest frontmen in music. The style, the voice—all of it. Any way that I was ever influenced by him really comes down to small, pale imitations compared to the real thing. There is a fearlessness about him. Watching him at Wembley Stadium with 70,000 people, he looks as comfortable as if he were in his own living room.”
Lori Majewski, Mad World: An Oral History of New Wave Artists and Songs That Defined the 1980s
