After all this time, I still have a hard time listening to their music; it's such a bittersweet experience trying to reconcile the vibrance and life that was a part of the music with Hutchense's suicide.

I'd hate to have to make the kind of choice INXS had to make: go the way of Led Zeppelin and say "without him, there is no band" or the way of Van Halen and say "all the other elements are still here, we just need a new singer". Either way, they lose. Even so, it makes me sad more than anything else to think of INXS without Michael at the mic - it can never be the same; it can never be as good.

I agree.
For two solid weeks after his death, I couldn't listen to anything except INXS because it felt disrespectful (that's not the word, but something like that) and for the longest time, I knew it was a murder because his music was always so positive. It was really difficult to come to grips with.
Still, I think going the way of Led Zeppelin is the better choice, but hey, I'm not in the band so it's not my call.
