‘Gudinski, forever no. 1’, was the message captioned, next to red love hearts.

The mushroom is a nod to Michael as the founder of Mushroom Records, while the gold handpin is a reference to his signature pose.

Widely regarded as the ‘father of the Australian music industry’, Michael died suddenly in his sleep on March 2, at the age of 68.
