Hutchence/yates Meeting 'Number One' Rock Interview

Subscribe to Inxs alerts

Late Inxs frontman Michael Hutchence's meeting with Paula Yates on British TV show THE TUBE in 1986 has been named the best TV music interview of all time. Yates, who wed SIR Bob Geldof later that year, is clearly very attracted to Hutchence in the footage and she later dumped the Live 8 organiser to get together with the Australian rocker. Yates, who died of an overdose in 2000, recalled of the meeting, "When he walked in, he was so beautiful it made me feel quite feeble. "The view of Michael's crotch was so impressive - the Taj Mahal of crotches - it was impossible to look at anything else and The Whole nation was probably doing the same." Yates gave birth to Hutchence's daughter, TIGER LILY, in 1996, but Hutchence died in a Sydney, Australia hotel room in 1997. The top 10 music interviews, as compiled by ITN Source, is as follows: 1. PAULA YATES and MICHAEL HUTCHENCE - THE TUBE, 1986 2. THE WHO and RUSSELL HARTY - HARTY, 1973 3. PUBLIC IMAGE LIMITED and CHRIS COWEY - CHECK IT OUT, 1979 4. Shaun Ryder and CHRIS EVANS - TFI FRIDAY, 1995 5. SHAKIN' STEVENS and RICHARD MADELEY - CALENDAR GOES POP, 1980 6. THE Beatles and KEN DODD - SCENE AT 6.30, 1963 7. JOHN BONHAM and BILLY CONNOLLY - ALRIGHT NOW, 1980 8. SIR MICK JAGGER - WORLD IN ACTION, 1967 9. NICK CAVE - NIGHT NETWORK, 1988 10. SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY - ITN, 1967.
