Bruce Springsteen, Kylie Minogue and Ed Sheeran are among the stars who pay tribute to influential Australian music promoter Michael Gudinski after his death at the age of 68.

Gudinski, a prominent figure in his country’s music scene, died peacefully in his sleep, according to his Mushroom Group label House in Melbourne.

Described as larger than life, Gudinski founded Mushroom in 1972 when he was 20 years old. It became Australia’s largest independent entertainment group.

It played a key role in bringing some of the world’s biggest stars down under. Springsteen was one of them and had a touching appreciation for social media.

He said: “My friend Michael Gudinski was the first, last and always a musician. I’ve traveled the world for the past fifty years and have never met a better promoter.

« Michael always spoke in a deep, rumbling voice, and the words came out so quickly that half the time I needed an interpreter . But I could hear him as clearly as a bell when he said, « Bruce, I’ve covered you. » And he always did.

« He was loud, always on the move, intentionally (and unintentionally) funny, and deeply soulful. Artists from around the world will remember him every time they step on Australian soil.

« My deepest condolences go to his wife and partner Sue and the whole Gudinski family, of whom he was so proud. »
