U2 singer and Nobel Prize nominee Bono has recently admitted that he should have spent more time with former troubled INXS frontman Michael Hutchence during the last days of his life.
“I felt I had let Michael down because I was lost in my own business and hadn’t called as much as I would have liked,” said the Irish rock star.
“In fact, Ali (Bono’s wife) had spent some time with him (Hutchence) and she'd said he looked a bit shaky to her.”
Michael Hutchence committed suicide in 1997 leaving behind a daughter Heavenly Hiraani Tiger Lily (also known just as Tiger Lily) who he had with British TV host Paula Yates. Yates passed away in 2000 from an apparent drug overdose leaving ex-husband Bob Geldof to take care of Tiger Lily.
