Michael Gudinski was a music man, impresario, and natural-born hustler. He repeatedly risked everything for his one obsession: Australian music. At age 19 he launched Mushroom Records and went on to sign and nurture iconic artists including Skyhooks, Split Enz, Jimmy Barnes, Paul Kelly, Hunters & Collectors, Kylie Minogue, Archie Roach and Yothu Yindi. Not content with just a label, his hunger extended to being on the road promoting legendary international acts such as Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting. There's barely a living Australian whose life hasn't been touched by the music he was behind.
