Le Bon Adds Hutchence Tribute Song To Duran Duran Setlist

SIMON LE BON has re-introduced a song he wrote about late pal MICHAEL HUTCHENCE into the DURAN DURAN live set after pulling it following the INXS star's death. The British singer wrote tribute tune Michael, You've Got a Lot to Answer For just before the 1997 tragedy and was performing the track on tour in Australia when Hutchence was found dead, hanging from his belt on the back of a door in his hotel suite. As the 10th anniversary of the tragedy approaches (22Nov07), Le Bon has added the song to Duran Duran's setlist. He says, "I lived with him (Hutchence) for a few months years ago and he loved life, women and drugs." Le Bon claims he stopped performing the song because he found it too difficult to sing.
