Michael Gudinski may have left us two years ago, but his impact continues to be felt across the Australian music industry.
This week Ed Sheeran will play the MCG on the second anniversary of his friend and mentor’s passing.
The ARIAs now have the ‘Michael Gudinski Breakthrough Artist Award’, which has been won by Budjerah and most recently rock band King Stingray.
Artists Michael worked with continue to pay their respects to the iconic figure in what would have been the year he turned 70 and his record label Mushroom turns 50.
