Michael Hutchence's life is soon set to be revisited in new BBC Two documentary, Mystify: Michael Hutchence.
The INXS front-man was found hanged in his Sydney hotel room in 1997, with coroners ruling he had died by suicide, although his partner Paula Yates insisted it was a "sex game gone wrong".
Now, the BBC is set to revisit the story of the rock singer with the bad boy reputation - and his intense romance with popstar Kylie Minogue.
Kylie will be interviewed in the film, alongside the likes of Michele Bennett, Andrew Fariss and Helena Christensen - the woman he allegedly left Kylie for.
Reflecting on their romance, the I Should Be So Lucky singer readily admits she was "corrupted" by the singer, but in the most "perfect" of ways.
But why did their 18-month love affair captivate such interest?
Leaving Jason Donovan
Soap favourite Kylie was in a high-profile relationship with her Neighbours co-star, Jason Donovan, when she first met Michael in a bar in Australia.
Despite the fact she was taken at the time, Michael instantly acknowledged the chemistry they had, telling her, "I don't know what we should do first, have lunch or have sex".
Kylie said she was "taken aback" by the cheeky comment, but admitted it lit a fire inside her and left her unable to "stop thinking about him".
Intent on winning Kylie over, a year after their first meeting Michael is said to have invited her and Jason to his hotel room, where he allegedly worked his charm on the pop princess behind the actor's back all night.
Sure enough, she and Jason ended things soon after, and Kylie and Michael went on to have a passionate and lusty relationship.
'Joining the Mile High Club'
The pair's most famous scandal reportedly occurred when they were sat on a Qantas airliner - right behind the Australian Prime Minister, Bob Hawke.
While Kylie has never confirmed the stories, Michael's good friend Nick Egan claimed she and the rockstar got seriously intimate on the flight, joining the Mile High Club in the first class section.
He added that rather than head to the toilet, Michael simply placed her on his lap under a blanket.
However, they weren't as inconspicuous as they would have liked, with the PM said to have turned around and caught them in the act.
"Hawke happened to look round and catch a look back – and gave them a wink in the -middle of the act. That’s perhaps the sort of thing Kylie wouldn’t have done a couple of years before," Egan recalled.
The moment in the clouds was later depicted for an Aussie TV show about INXS, but Kylie allegedly insisted they played down the x-rated content.
Speaking of the raunchy moment with American journalist Bill Schulz, Kylie coyly said she would never divulge whether the rumours were true.
"I'm not telling. I never told that story. Only Michael and I know what really happened," she said.
While holidaying with Michael, Kylie again hit the headlines when she had a pair of handcuffs confiscated from her hand-luggage at Heathrow airport security.
The previously sweet and innocent TV star was quick to insist that they were the quirky handle to one of her clutch bags.
However, knowing Michael's high profile kinky antics, many were unconvinced.
Schulz also got a cagey response from Kylie when he asked if they had ever been used for "anything more carnal".
She kept her cards close to her chest as she replied: "That's all you need to know about it".
Drugs and guns
Kylie once admitted to taking ecstasy during a wild "phase" in her life, and also claimed to have had "lots of firsts" with the rockstar.
Michael's friend Egan also recalled a reckless time that Michael was taking drugs in the countryside alongside a marksman.
“They had taken liquid ecstasy and Kylie was sniffing a rose," he said.
"The guy shot it from under her nose so it blew up in her face. Michael got a thrill and fear from that.”
Michael's cheating and their break up
Despite their evident love for each other, reports of Michael's cheating eventually surfaced.
Australian Kylie is said to have been "heartbroken" when Michael was linked to Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, with reports suggesting he dumped Kylie by telephone.
Michael's brother Rhett recalled: "She flew over from London to see if she could rekindle things but it was already too late.
"They had a fight, Michael went off to his gig and Kylie cried in his room. It was so sad. Michael walked out of her life and I felt desperately sorry for her."
Devastatingly for Kylie, Michael and Helena went on to become an item and dated for four years.
However, the dust seemed to settle with time, and Kylie's fondness towards him was still evident even years later after his untimely passing.
Telling Kirsty Young in 2015 that she would still pick an INXS song as one of her Desert Island Discs, her love for Michael was clear as she recalled their relationship emotionally.
"It was a glorious time," she said.
