Hearne: Divinyls Lead Singer Chrissy Amphlett Dead at 53

tumblr_m5l2q7zTwG1r0xqgao1_500Let’s not get carried away like the writer at a certain local alt weekly did but…

As long as death seems to be the topic of the day, deceased Divinyls lead singer Chrissy Amphlett definitely deserves a shout out.

Who didn’t see the sultry Australian redhead’s 1991 video of the song,  “I touch myself” on MTV and conjure fantasies of…well, you know.

It didn’t hurt that Amphlett’s sexy stage persona went down in ultra short skirts and garter belts and low cut tops.

The Pitch erroneously calls the Divinyls a “one hit wonder.”

The band put out six albums and had several hit songs – just not in this country – beginning in 1982.

However a falling out with Virgin Records resulted in some of the bands work not being distributed here.

    Hearne, a great show and OMG hotness of Chrissy and The Divinyl’s at The Shadow in Westport in early 1992… epic live show. Didn’t you co-promote that one with us? A winning act all the way. So sad to hear of her passing. One for the all time momory books. Nice lady… much easier to deal with than Warren Zevon. Take care, Jack H.
