Chrissy Amphlett was one of the greatest female rock singers of all time. She was one of my favorite collaborators and a dear friend. I miss her dearly. I have so many wonderful memories of working with her and Mark.
Thank you for sharing a part of your life with us.
I thought of you today. I love your music and your gorgeous voice.
Hi Chrissy, Thanks for visiting me in a dream last night and for singing "Sleeping Beauty" in its entirety.
Still remembering on your Birthday Chrissy and still missing your beautiful smile
A sad loss of a true natural talent. After reading her biography, my heart felt for this woman and her dreams. Chrissy was the best in Aus Rock!
David Oldham (Queanbeyan, NSW)
Rest in Peace Chrissy; will always remember you. The angels will sing as they have never sung before, with you by their side.
The family has my deepest sympathy for their loss. May the God who has the ability to comfort all comfort you at this time. May Mrs. Amphlett sleep in peace.
It is with deep sympathy that I send my condolences to your family. Death is not an easy thing cope with. Find comfort and solace in the fact that our Heavenly Father will heal your broken hearts. He promises to supply you with "strength beyond what is normal" to make it through this difficult time. (Psalm 147:3; 2 Cor 4:7)
Remembering you Chrissy on your birthday we miss your beautiful smile.
6 months without you, it is too much pain for us. We love you always.
I am sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the words written at (Jeremiah 29:11,12)
I am sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in the words written at (Jeremiah 29:11,12)
With deepest sympathy to the Amphlett family during your time of grief...God is for you a "refuge and strength," A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with "peace and comfort" to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).

You are the gutsy, outspoken, beautiful person I have always aspired to be. Thank God for you Chrissy, you made music ROCK! Thanks. RIP sweet angel, condolences to your family and loved ones. XxX
Chrissy,I'm 60 and you and the divynals have been part of my life. God chooses the special people to fill the seats, I Just don't understand why beautiful people have to suffer in the end.On behalf of us Aussies, forever in our Hearts.
Incredible loss of an outstanding Australian talent. Growing up in the 80's would not have been the same without Chrissy's voice and energetic performances. Inspiring.
Chrissy you were an Australian icon ,you opened the door for woman to stand up for themselves not to take domestic abuse (in my case anyway)you were just Chrissy the rock chick from oz that taught us to be ourselves I love you and will never forget RIP...
To our rock queen of Oz rip Chrissy A
I saw you many times during the 80s around Sydney and for the last time at the Forum in Dec 2007...you were my all time fav rock chic Chrissy and there will never be anyone else like you!!! I just loved your concerts and the music will always remind me of fun times in the 80's... Rip beautiful Chrissy xxxxxx
You Chrissy have been an inspiration throughout my life, i always felt i was on the outside, but your bravery and music enabled me to stand in my own light and shine. You will be missed by many, you were loved by many, and your light will shine bright forevermore, I miss you and I love you Chrissy. R.I.P.
I only saw you live one time, Pasadena CA., USA, in 1983 or '84. It was truly an unforgettable performance by an exceptional performer. Both my wife and I were stunned and exhilarated and die hard Divinyls fans thereafter. What kept me such a loyal fan over the years however were the songs, the music. when you sit down and listen, you realize what exceptional songwriters you and Mark McEntee truly were. How really underrated you were here in the US. I can't tell you how many times I've been with friends with Divinyls blaring out of a set of speakers and have them say who is that?! And I'm talking from Desperate to diVINYLS (sadly Underworld wasn't released here). Then of course came your accomplishments on the musical stage. Although with out question you belong to Australia, you are in my mind one of the greatest women in rock worldwide for really too many reasons to state here. Thanks Chrissy Amphlett. God keep you and comfort and bless your family and friends.
You gave so much. Inspired so many. You will be missed profoundly Chrissy. Your death has left a hole inside me and many others. R.I.P.
I still can't get my head around the fact you're gone, Chrissy. Your music will always be a part of my life and I'm so happy I was lucky enough to see you perform live in your very short time with us. Love you always xoxox
R.I.P. Chrissy.. Gone But not forgotten... xx
R.I.P. you will be missed.xx
I guess it was timely that I created a FB fan group for you and your amazing husband in January. Your marriage was a testimony and an inspiration to us all, just as your music was. It's great to have Charley a part of the group now and we will continue your legacy and keep the candle always burning, VALE CHRISTINA xoxo
An amazing,inspirsational, gutsy woman.....i idolized u growing up in Melbourne, the worls has lost a trye Queen Of Rock

Now 32 yrs later I'm still singing but also in a tribute band that i formed under a year ago dedicated to you.... I guess I really didnt think you would leave so soon.... Thank you for the last 30 yrs Miss Amphlett! I will do you proud! X

Wish you well crissy and will always remember your amazing voice so beautiful n strong jane in perth w.a @)-;-- ???
Truly an untamed spirit that your lovely frame could scarcely contain. You poured your bright inner light over us and now the world is duller and colder without it.
A true performer, and a very sexy lady with a fantastic voice
Such a sad loss. Thoughts are with the family
One lady never forgotten may you be resting in gods arms Chrissy gone but never forgotten xxx
R.I P CHRISSY SUCH A SAD LOSS..... NEVER FORGOTTEN
one special lady rip crissy xoxo
You were an inspiration Chrissy, in a time when women didn't necessarily have a 'voice', you taught us to be assertive and have our own strength. You will be sadly missed and never forgotten, especially here in Oz.
You gave young girls & women another option for their identities. You gave us permission to be strong, opiniated women when back in the 80's it wasn't always this way. Despite the pressures of an industry that requires women to conform to a stero-type to succeed, you stayed true to yourself and managed to succeed.
I left always left your converts thoroughly entertained and in awe of your talent.
I hope this next journey is an easier one for you.
I am so sorry for the loss of Chrissy. May the thought and prayers of relatives and friends give encouragement to her family and may the God of comfort gives comfort and strenght to her family to cope during this difficult time. 2 cor. 1:4
RIP Chrissy. You were and are so very talented. It is singers like you who deserve all the best in the world. I live up in Canada and I just love your music. You were so full of life up until the very end and I admire you for it. I really wish that you didn't have to go because in my eyes, you are one of a kind. I will try my hardest to help make your music and your name last forever. I am trying my best right now to make your name well known, because you deserve it. I will miss you very much and you have touched so many people's hearts, including myself. RIP dear angel.
You're now a star in the sky to admire and be remembered by. Great legends live on & on forever....
thanks for the great music.
Rest In Peace Chrissy. Will always remember you growing up in the 80's with your great songs and "Great Voice"

Divinyls tunes and tears in heavy rotation this week for me. What a force of nature Chrissy is. Her legacy will live forever but heaven just received a gorgeous, sexy, rockin new angel!! XOXO you beautiful lady.
You absolutely rocked. Everyone wants my much treasured Divinyls scrapbooks now but there's no chance that I will ever part with them. I've got the advertisement for the Monkey Grip movie from The Sun newspaper, 30 September, 1982, photographs that were taken by Stuart Spence, the Tempremental single promtions by Chrysalis/Festival Records, The Wild Child article which featured you on the cover of the Countdown magazine on 5 January, 1983, the Divinyls review by M.Roberts from the gig at the Enmore Theatre on the 15 March, 1986 which featured in On The Street, the advertisments for when you played at places such as the Castle Hill RSL Club and so very much more. The Divinyl records and singles I have on cassette and vinyl are priceless to me. You were an incredible influence on me and I had the pleasure to meet you also. You were just a really lovely lady who turned into this incredible persona on stage. You have left you mark in music and you will always be remembered as one of Australia's greatest female artists. Thank you for the music and thank you for your incredible contributions to the arts. R.I.P xx
For the past few days I have been shattered with the loss of Chrissy. I loved the music and I loved the Divinyls.
Such a sad loss. Thank you.
"Team Christine" misses you very much! RIP sweetie. I'm so happy your no longer hurting! You were a star in more ways than one!
Im still in shock,you were such a big part of my gigging life from the early eighties. Like many i fell in love with you and your songs,your passion and angst. I close my eyes and i see you prow that stage like it was yesterday. All i can say is Thankyou so very much. You will forever remain in our hearts and never be forgotten xx
...live in peace Chrissy, wherever you may be in the afterlife...
You were a part of the best days of my life. So sorry, you are a legend. Rest

Dear Chrissy, you have been in my ears,my eyes and heart for a very long time. Dancing in the lounge room with my sister to Science Fiction and Boys in Town, to seeing you a few times at the Goulburn Workers club, serving you a cuppa at the Mobil Roadhouse, the Australia Made concert and the woman I would channel when I needed to feel strong and brave. I'll miss you but you'll always be such an important part of my world and the music world. Sing loud and dance wild from the heavens!

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
To the McEntee and Amphlett Families: We are sorry to hear of your loss. It is never too late to express our appreciation for the contributions Chrissy made to the Rock Music genre, and the many lives that were touched by her contributing in her own way with her own style. May the God of love value the life she lived. May her family members be comforted by God's promise of seeing her again in perfect mind and body. Remembering Chrissy Amphlett today and in the days to come!
I have already missed her when she retired from the music scene. I also have MS, so losing another advocate and fellow fighter against MS, is terribly sad. She sounds like she was a strong and brave lady. My prayers are with the family.
you are an amazing role model, you have been mine since I was 12 I'm now 41. I chose you because you had the strength I needed.Your time here on earth helped alot of young women and now your legacy lives on. Your strength helps other still I'm so glad you where born in my life time. My angel has found her wings again.
Chrissy what can I say such an inspiration to Australian rock music. May u r.i.p. Up there with the other rock angels. Condolences to the family. Xx
You have lived your own Pleasure & Pain. Rest in peace Sleeping Beauty
We danced to your music at my twenty-first birthday party in 1981. Thirty years later we're still dancing and listening to your songs. May the stage lights in Heaven shine for you always.
My sincere condolences on the loss of your dear loved one. At Psalms 102:17 "God will be with those stripped of everything".
Dear Chrissy - your music was such a huge part of my teens in the 80's and on into the 90's. I thought you were invulnerable, and wished I could have been a rock god like you, Rest peacefully, no more pain. Deepest sympathy to your family, husband and Holiday. An admirer
My heart is with you at this difficult time. John 6:40 assures us that soon we will see our loved ones again. There will be a time when we will not suffer in this way!
Miss u already
My dearest Chrissie, You changed my life in ways you'll never know. I first met you as an Air Hostess on a Pan Am flight and was completely taken by your candor. You were the most unique woman I had ever met. I will never forget you, never forget your voice, the sound of your throaty laugh and your beauty. Thank you for being that ethereal spirit that told me to simply live my life. Rest in Peace dear girl, you deserve Heaven.
When I found out you died. I drove home through the streets of Geelong with my window down and your brilliant voice and spirit roaring out of my car speakers. Thank You Chrissy. Geelong and the rest of the world will miss you.
It is ironic that the song Pleasure And Pain now seems fitting, You gave a nation Songs that will not only remain in our memories forever, but the memories where we were when we first heard them. There is a fine line between pleasure and pain , the pleasure you bought with your music and the pain of knowing we will never hear you sing again,but in our hearts for ever more will be that voice of Chrissy Amphlett
Thank you for the wonderful music. It will always bring me fond memories. My sincere condolences to your loved ones.
RIP Chrissy As a young man you always made my heart soar! You were the best Australian rock queen ever! I will never forget you! I picked this for you because you always stood above the rest
I, one of millions loved Chrissie Amphlett.
Never to be forgotten, a genuine legend of the music industry. Saw heaps of shows in SA in the 80's and 90's.
RIP,You made me smile...you are a legend & your music will live forever
I had the Divine pleasure of meeting Chrissy when she was in Noosa for her book launch 2005 at ABC book store with Annie. We went out after and talked about life, the universe and everything. I spent my teenage and early twenties raging around Sydney live music venues with the fantastic musical hues of the Divinyls. They were a force to behold......thanks Chrissy for being a vanguard and a formidable warrior spirit of rock n roll. May your friends and family grieve with ease. Rage with the dimming of the light..........Marita x
My sympathy to AMPHLETT family. your loved one music touched the lives of many. may the God of all comfort help your family to endure during this time of grief.
May u finally rest peacefully!!!
RIP, Chrissy. Give Jimi, Jim, Janis and Jerry a hug for me

Legend rock chick Chrissie
You will be missed but you made a huge impact xxxxxxxxx
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
RIP Chrissy, from a Divinyls fan in the USA. No female rocker from your era thru today can hold a candle to you. You blew us away - songs like "Elsie"... Wow!
Dear Amphlett Family, I am so sorry to hear of your lost. What helps me cope during times of grief is knowing our Creator will swallow up death forever. (1 Corinthians 15:26)
YOU ROCKED THE WORLD! A life lived not in vain, but immeasurable, for what you did for women!
We are sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow. May peace reside with you and love from family and friends sustain you.
Who knew that a town like Geelong could produce a woman like Chrissy Amphlett!!
My God Chrissy, how their jaws must have dropped when you gave them the Chrissy treatment.
What an icon, wish I could have known you, RIP now, you will never be forgotten.
You always brought a smile to this little Aussie Vegemiters face and always will.....forever with us
You couldn't have brought more smiles to this face if you tried!! Between dancing and loving your voice and that wonderful gap in your teeth (!), you have been the best. You are not forgotten.
The Divinyls were one of my absolute all time favorite bands. She will be sadly missed.

I always admired you for being able to stand your own ground with the boys in a male dominated industry. Commanding and demanding respect, you were able to do it and still remain strong, sexy, tough, vulnerable. All female all powerful. I'll miss you Chrissy, I really will. I'll always carry a little piece of your toughness with me wherever I go. RIP XO
I remember seeing you in concert at Festival Hall when I was a teenager. I was in awe of you and played your records over and over. Just about a week ago I suddenly felt like listening to a Divinyls LP to get back in touch with my youth......I didn't know then that you would leave us so soon. RIP Chrissy, thanks for the great tunes.
Thank you Chrissy for all the ground-breaking entertainment and the special years you shared with the world. Will miss u but never forget the experience of you through the years, and u being u. Peter. Sunshine Coast.

RIP Chrissy, no more pain for a beautiful fighter. Now you can rock it out in heaven with all the other great stars up there
In London and just found out. One of my all time favourites, Chrissy had the best voice and a stage performance that blew you away. Too young to go
I remember the early days .. like sweaty nights at The San Miguel ... and the Triple Jay broadcasts ... I remember watching you mature into a great actress .... I remember crying with the 'pleasure & pain' on the night you were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame ... I remember Chrissie - I love Chrissie (NEVER in the past tense - and NEVER forgotten !!!) xxoo
Oh so, so sad. I feel fortunate to have seen the Divinyls play many years ago in Geelong. I vividly remember Chrissy performing at the Arena. To hear such a powerful voice and witness her performance was breathtaking to say the least. What a performer. I recall the Divinyls on Hey Hey Its Saturday. Amazing. Thank you Chrissy. May you sing with the Angels. RIP xx Nancy
May GOD Be with all involved. My thoughts & prayers are with the family!!!! God is LOVE
R.I.P Chrissy you were and will always be the famous rock chick of Australia. My thought are with your family at this sad time.Show all those beautiful angels just how to really rock out. Now there is no more pain.xxx
All the boys in town will never be the same and we will miss you dearly.
Great and beautiful music and songs left this world with special memories may you Rest In Peace
Wow! The first time I experienced Chrissy Amphlett; vulnerable school girl, pouting looks at the Coogee Bay hotel I seem to remember, but massively rich, painfully honest and confronting. She was out there, and too bad if you didn't like it! a legendary example to me and all women at that time of how we could risk taking control of our own lives and contribute something wonderful. How very sad, but what a gift to the world. God bless.
What a sad time this is with the passing of the incredible Chrissy Amphlett! What a shock to know that a great person like Chrissy will no longer sing and perform for all of us. I thank god that her music is left behing for all of us to cherish and enjoy. Being an M.S sufferer myself I can't even imagine the courage and strength this little red haired bomb shell possessed when she got on stage and performed for all our enjoyment. Rest peacefully beautiful lady, until we meet again one day and you can once more entertain us like no other performer! Gone but never ever forgotton! xx Mary from Melbourne
I shed a tear when I heard the news! A loss of a true Rock stalwart!! Flashback to 1991' I was at 'The Bop' (Blue light disco)in Sutherland where I had my first kiss. Sure enough to the hit song 'I touch myself'. Such a memory can never be erased. Chrissy, your music is etched in our hearts forever! xx
I read your autobiograpy many years ago, and was impressed with what an articulate and strong woman you were. You have inspired a generation of women. Be at peace now.
Another great Australian musician taken too soon. Your songs are on constant rotation today. RIP.
Cant believe Chrissy is gone! What an icon she was & always will be. Lots of great memories following the D's around the pub scene in the 80's. Rest in Peace Chrissy, you will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
Chrissy, much loved, greatly respected, sadly missed, always remembered.
You fought a tough battle. You are in our hearts forever. Will miss you. YOU WERE FREAKIN AWESOME!!! Your music will forever live on, your a bloody legend. Will miss the live performances Chrissy xxoo Rest In Paradise :)
You were such an icon and an influence to so many. Incredibly talented, creative and a shining light for us all. Rock In Peace Chrissy, your light will always shine in our hearts.
30 years ago I first saw Chrissy and the Diviyls perform. When she came on stage in her school dress with her fluro mic it was a defining moment. At that time women sang 'nice' pop songs about boyfriends and love and Chrissy appeared and blew that perception apart. She made us realise women could be strong, raunchy, sexy as well as having talent. Rest in peace Chrissy. You gave us all so much. What a woman!
Thank You Chrissy for being you, Thoughts are with family & friends
I am deeply saddened to hear of Chrissy's passing. I was a fan both in music and as a person keeping her head up while struggling with her illnesses. _/\_
I understand why Madonna saw Chrissy as an equal.. she was! I guess making it in such an industry and in such a time would of been almost impossible...but she achieved success. in Australia at the time I am guessing it would of been hard for a female singer as well. But it was achieved by Chrissy Pamphlet. You could tell by the music she created, that it was the teenager inside her that came to life, every time she hit the stage..I could sense it every time I played her records. It will always be forever and always remembered. When I hear tracks like science fiction and pleasure and pain and so many other hits.. listening to them would take me to another place another time, I felt the 80s vibe she was achieving and the angst of what it would be like to be a teen then. Thats hard to create from a song. Rest in peace.
Saw her in 1980 in Newcastle when she manhandled the "blokey" crowd without missing a beat absolutely iconic female and not just because of the music
Chrissy, you will always be the First Lady of Aussie Rock to me. Thank you for the fabulous music and thrilling me as a teenager! Your legacy will never be forgotten and I send love and condolences to your partner, family and friends. Forever in the hearts of so many people. xox
So sad and i did not even know you personally,thats how much your music meant to me.Sleep peacefully dear chrissy.
A generation grew up on your songs Every girl I knew wanted to be just like Chrissie. Thanks for giving us great music a better world and thanks for being MADE IN AUSTRALIA YOU ROCKED OUR WORLD RIP
An amazing talent, an amazing woman, your unique ways will live with me forever as will your magic performances on Molly Meldrum's Countdown! Vicky Noorland, Melbourne born Greek, currently residing in Hamilton NZ xxxx
You were the sound backdrop to my adult life, I adored your voice and stage act - your only one year older than me - a great loss to Australia and the world - New York is a mighty fine place to leave this mighty coil - missed and loved forever from Tassie
I didn't know you or even knew much about you but your determination and softness as we all have a soft side touched me .
Good bye Chrissy, We will all miss your driving rock and roll.
Rest in peace little sister and rock them pearly gates!!!
The world has lost a beautiful person. We will never know a talent like yours again Chrissy. Rest In Peace now.
1 word Legend rip Chrissy.
Chrissy - Hope you give them hell in heaven!
First live band I ever saw was Divinyls supporting Cold Chisel at Edsaac basketball courts on central coast. She was pouting, leering and threatening and made CC seem tame in comparison. Got drunk that night as well for 1st time, so I will always remember her fondly. RIP
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
Ruth Ann Mahaffey (author)
Chrissie, you died as you lived, strong, tenacious and brazen. RIP
I can't believe your gone,well to somewhere I can't easily ring
Thanks Chrissy for putting your stamp on Aussie music and giving the world music that will be enjoyed for years to come. It was an honour to be at your last Divinyls show in Melbourne. Rest in peace.
Heaven rocks and will never be the same again. Thank you for the ride, Chrissy. Erich Meyer.
Always have the memories of the great pub shows years ago ,thanks for all the great music Long Live Australian Rock N roll Thanks Chrissie RIP
Rest In Peace Beautiful Lady , there will never be another , Love to Charlie
Chrissy, you were a trailblazing force of nature. Gritty, raw, and confronting - you held every audience in the palm of your hand. Like a purring kitten that might scratch your eyes out, you inspired love and fear in equal measure. To see you live was to be spellbound by you. Bold, courageous, sexy and powerful, you exemplified grace and dignity right to the end. Truly, the divine Miss A. Thank you for the music and the memories. What a life!
I thank God for sending us the voice of a angle. We love you Chrissy and many thanks from the world
God Bless, your kick butt attitude. Will always remember your amazing voice.
Even with your passing you look amazing.Grew up with your music as a teen, I have truly been blessed. Thank you Chrissy.Rest in Peace, your legacy in Oz rock is cemented in stone.
CHRISSY AMPHLETT Rest in Peace. RIP 22.4.2013, One of Australia's Greatest Singers.. I will always remember the Sydney Myer Music Bowl show, where Chrissy & Mark were going OFF… and then Quieter times in Power Plant Studios in Melbourne with Peter Bylton in the Late 80's…
Chrissy,hard to believe your gone,you left a amazing legacy for other female rockers,and I truly doubt they will ever reach the high standard u have set.You be sorely missed.Chrissy go and start "ROCKING on HEAVENS DOOR". RIP.XXX
Loved Chrissy's music and her persona since the 80's. Read her book in the 00's and have since felt very close to her. The saddest day in Australian Rock'n'Roll. May tomorrow's sunrise ignite the joy.
Chrissy,you touched the Hearts of so many with your attitude,your voice,your honesty and to be different.Ive seen you play many times around the place since 80's concerts at football fields to clubs throughout Sydney.My most memorable was at Patricks PennantHills a few years ago when i was taking your photograph whilst on stage and you reached over and asked me for it, i thought you wanted to take a photo from onstage of the crowd but insted you took it and put it behind you on stage.I was a bit pissed at that but in true Chrissy Amphlett form at the end of the gig you actually came and gave it back to me. There was only 2 or 3 photos taken on it that night ( as it was a cheap instamatic and the flash / battery had died) but those pics and that memory as well as the old Ronson Field gig i'l always cherrish in my heart.To a Beautiful Woman, a Great Spirit and an uncomprimising Artist may you always show them up there who's Boss and that ROCK will always survive. Thankyou for all the MEMORIES, you will be in my HEART forever and may your LIGHT always SHINE BRIGHT !Mwah R.I.P
Every young girl in the 80s and 90s wanted to be like chrissy. sleep peacefully
The tears have finally stopped for long enough to take comfort in the fact that one of my Queens has left this world, only to pass into one just as beautiful with wonderful company. I love you Chrissy. from a tiny tot who was scared of you, to my teens, to now. Thank you for the amazing legacy you have left, the opportunity to see you perform for the last time, and meet you backstage, and for forming a friendship in which you helped me through one of the roughest patches in my life. You fought through your battle days, and now you can rest, Sleeping Beauty. ? xo PunXsie
Your wonderful legacy of songs, sultry performance and gutsy persona will remain with us always. Rest in Peace Chrissy
RIP Chrissy...my sincere condolences to Charlie, family and friends....Dominic Barbuto
Watched Mickey Mouse club with you on TV when you were about 3, the only house to have a TV. in Belmont. (We had a shop around the corner). Friends with Leigh, lounge room full of kids. Cute memories from childhood.

Shocked, saddened but oh so proud to see the tributes for the first lady of Oz Rock flowing in. Feel like I have lost a part of me. One of my all time faves and I was honoured to see her strut her stuff on multiple occasions, including her last show ever as it turned out. RIP Chrissy. Forever a legend.
Chrissy. What an absolute Australian rock legend I remember you in the eighties may you never be forgotten Peter
Gorgeous Chrissy! You will forever be "ONE & ONLY"
You will be missed by many! Rest in peace xxx
Inspirational,.raw and truly an amazing rock goddess,..may you rock heaven like you rocked it here x
Saw you tear up a stage many times but probably my favourite was in 1995 when you hit the stage with Joan Jett opening and you absolutely owned the place. You have left us with a legacy of songs that will outlive the rest of us and I thank you for that. RIP
I was only a teenager when I first saw you live and will never forget it. You rocked my world. RIP Chrissy - what a legend...
Absolute ledgend of the aussie music industry, fond memories of my younger years rocking to divynals. Love your work Chrissy, your memory lives on.
Chrissy you will be missed for who you were and your talent. AN Angel now resting. xx
RIP Chrissy. What an absolute Australian rock legend. You have touched so many lives with your honesty and 'this is who I am' attitude. Thoughts and prayers going out to your family. You are amazing!
Sad to hear this news. Followed this band around the Sydney pubs in the 80' into the 90's and every show was better than the last. She was a talent. Very sad.
I saw you play in Hervey Bay many many years ago, best night ever. Have all your albums, one of my most favourite singers and bands. You were a wonderful singer, songwriter, entertainer, actress, legend in rock and ambassador for Australian music, you will be sadly missed by all.
One of the great live performers... I will never forget the gig at the Tivoli in SA (late 80s) when she rocked up 2 hours late but then just rocked and had the audiance in the palm of her hand... RIP Chrissy and love to her family
Wow, what a time to be hitting the Sydney pub-rock scene in the early '80s and to come across bands like The Divinyls. I hadn't seen anyone like Chrissy Amphlett on a stage before, and I haven't seen anything like here since. What a rock and roll classic she was. I'll never forget the day out at Cronulla when the Australian Made tour played in front of a packed football oval and grandstands. Chrissy revelled in that opportunity. She was so sexy, and so tough, and such a great singer and frontwoman, the ultimate rock chick. RIP.
My girl who made the "pout" sexy, you are a star, you always will be. So miss your words of encouragement and love, you made so many days of my life shine, now it is the turn of all those in heaven to enjoy your beautiful soul. Rest easy now Chris, rock that stage in heaven! Andrew McManus
Thank you for sharing your incredible talent with the world. You were a true Aussie rock star and icon. May you rest in peace and my thoughts are with your family and friends at this time.
I am gutted. She will always be my most favourite artist. See you in Heaven Chrissy. Paul aka Gabby
Thankyou Chrissy for the music, such an amazing ground breaker for femme rock!! Rock 'em up there!!
it takes someone truly unique to break an entrenched streotype.. Chrissy took rock from a boys club and opened it up.. she also took 'performing' to a new level with her stage persona.. a wonderful raw sexy energising icon.. RIP Chrissy and thank you - the music will remind
Chrissy - you changed the face of rock in Australia and showed to all of us growing up in the 80's that women rock!!! Henriette
You made my adolescence that much brighter when I saw you in concert with Divinyls on your "What A Life" tour in early 1986 as well as your show stealing performance at the Australian Made concert on New Years Day 1987 in Adelaide. Will never forget your captivating stage presence. The more amusing moments were when you would chase the techos off stage when they came near you. Thanks for your Aussie rock legacy. There will only ever be one Chrissy Amphlett. RIP
Enjoyed listening to your music in my younger years, it is sad that you have passed like the wind yet you (And your music) will always echo through time and in my heart. You will be missed. With sympathy for your family.
Gone too soon lovely lady.
Always wanted to be like Chrissy. May be departed but never forgotten
At Peace...thanks. for the music...gone too soon

God bless you and now rest in peace.
I am also 50 and my girlfriends and I followed her where ever they played in Sydney . I even jumped up on stage intoxicated once as you di in your teens and got carried off. IT WAS WORTH IT..

Dearest Chrissy, thank you for all the wonderful music and joy you brought into my life. I went to many Divinyls shows from the early days on. You were always amazing, a true legend and icon. An original, paving the way for many other female artists. You inspire me not only as a musician, but as a human being. Rest in peace beautiful lady.
She was an amazing, passionate singer and frontwoman, and she was so incredibly gorgeous. What a great legacy she has left behind. Rest in peace, Chrissy. <3
As a 50 yo, grew up with this woman, she on stage I in the mosh and within the crowds. aca daca, angels, etc etc and then there was Chrissy. Mate what a great era, Australian Rock and live bands, too numerous to mention. Don't know what I would have done without these people in my youth. Where is my live x Boga Road MV, time to watch and listen, very loud the way Chrissy liked it. RIP, fine lady.
RIP dear friend, Pleasure and Pain is one of my favorite songs I had the honor of writing for you. You were a queen a rock star and a Goddess xxxx

The world has lost a truly great person loaded with charm, talent, and class. I thought you were one of the hottest woman on the planet. I am so sorry that you had to suffer from two such terrible illnesses. But you were a fighter until the end. True class. You will be missed!
My God what a life,can't help remembering our wild teenage years.now it's time for a well earned rest my darling. We will miss you. Rest in peace

Chrissy thanks for that great song. You inspired other young women to channel their Rock Goddess to come out. There is another star burning brightly in the sky, and that is you. May you family find peace.
A True Rock Goddess.... You'll be sadly missed by not only family and friends but by all of US your fans who you helped make our life much more enjoyable with your attitude to life and your music.

Bev La Cioppa
The world has lost a wonderful woman, a fantastic entertainer, and a great Australian. I remember Wednesday nights at St. George Sailing Club and seeing Divinyls perform. Thanks for the great memories.... RIP my heart goes out to her family
Chrissy, I'd been listening to you in my car for the last three weeks and was even telling my thirteen year old daughter about you. It's such a shock, but hopefully I can keep telling my kids how great you were. Take it easy Chrissy in your next life and hopefully I will bump into you and sing a song together.
Chrissy Amphlett, no doubt the best aussie rock chic. Not only had a gift but her beauty shined and always will. You are now the 'SLEEPING BEAUTY' - Now at rest. Rest in peace angel. Warmest condolences to the Amplett family.
I remember the gig at the Chevron in the 80's , great gig and good band defo the best girl singer in an aussie band, rip and hope the family get over the death at such a young age.
So sad. Gone too soon. Grew up with your music. Part of so many lives. Rest in peace beautiful lady.
Lady, you gave a shy nerd proto geek girl permission to own herself with your music and your fiery stage persona. I hope the pain has eased for you now, a battle long and valiantly fought. You have taught me how to do that with dignity, too. Thank you, Chrissie.
Chrissy - The Australian Music Industry has lost a great voice, may you rest in peace.
Chrissy Amphlett, not only the best aussie rock chick ever, a beautiful person inside and out. You are now the 'SLEEPING BEAUTY' may you rest in peace. Forever in our hearts and your music will live forever. Warm thoughts to the Amphlett family. Jen
Chrissie you will always be remembered for being the 1st lady of rock to so many ppl you touch their lives with your music. Music that will live on forever xxxx
The music world will now be the poorer without you Chrissy,I was one of your biggest fans and to me you were my idol. R.I.P.
chrissie you gave great interviews Thank You
A true Rock Goddess and Australian icon, you will be missed.Rest in Peace Chrissy
It's not fair. Thankyou for your music forever.
I misread a line in her obituary. It reads, "Hers was a life of passion and creativity; she always lived it to the fullest." However, I thought it said "she always was a bullet". From what I've seen of her performances, I'd say that was apt. RIP.
You moved me with songs, inspired me through out my life and you will forever be my teenage crush. Rest in Peace.
I will miss her dearly. What a voice.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
BEAUTIFUL CHRISSY....TALENTED SINGER....LOVED YOUR #1 HIT & YOUR RED HAIR & WE LOVE YOU...HEAVEN NOW HAS A VERY SPECIAL ANGEL...

Chrissy gave us all permission to be 100% ourselves, she was the embodiement of an empowered women for me as a teenager from a rural town in the eighties. Thanks for paving the way Chrissy, you will be greatly missed but you leave an amazing legacy as an artist and in many other ways, Kxx
To the Amphlett family,
"May the God who gives peace be with all of YOU."
~ Romans 15:33
Just staggered and heartbroken by the news. She was absolutely one of a kind. Anyone like me who saw a few Divinyls shows here in the States never, ever forgot the experience. I'm a grown man with a few tears in my old eyes this morning.
Love ya, Chrissie. May you find peace and comfort. And thanks to Charley for taking such very good care of her. You're a role model for all good men.
R.I.P Chrissy. Great singer, sadly missed.
I did not know you, but I am saddened at the fact Australia has lost a very important icon who gave so much pleasure to thousands of followers. RIP
Offering my deepest condolences during this difficult time, I'm so very sorry for your loss, death is something we are never prepared for, but please find comfort in knowing sickness, pain and death will one day be no more.
My condolences to the Amphlett family. May you find comfort from God's word recorded at Ecclesiastes 9:5, 10 regarding the loss of your loved one.
Chrissy,when I first moved to Australia from New Zealand I was 28 and you would have been 20. You seemed to me to be older and more fantastic than people my age. I loved your voice, loved the Divinyls and followed you until the day the band broke up. I am very sad that you have suffered as you have. Thank you for making an impact on my life and thank you for the wonderful music. If there is a heaven - then you will kick some serious butt up there. Thank you Chrissy for the memories. x
RIP Chrissy you beautiful girl. I will never forget you or your songs or the way you taught all of us especially a lil kid back in the 80s from the streets of Albert Park how to rock. Although I am incredibly saddened to hear of your passing and how hard it is to type with my vision being intermittently obscured by something inside my eyes I hope you rock & move the world which youre in now as much as you did of this very lil kid, a lil kid some 30 years later with greyed hair & who cant think of what to say apart from goodbye beautiful girl from one of the old Boys in town xxxxooooo
RIP Chrissy. God bless you, your family, and friends.
I loved your music. It will live on forever. My thoughts go out to your friends and family.
Vale Chrissy. Today with your passing we have lost a true Queen of rock and a music legend.
Rest easy and enjoy the great gig in the sky.
We will miss you so much but you will never be forgotten.Now your spirit is free and we are all richer for having known you
I'm so sorry for your loss. My prayers go out to you and your family. May the God of comfort be with you during our time of grief.
May the God of comfort be with your family at this sad time, (Isa 61:2)
A truly amazing soul. RIP Chrissy xoxo
Same age, different life. Every girl wants the life of a rock and roll singer, you lived it and we loved you. Great songs, great voice, great band. Goodbye and forever remembered.

I hope you are shining in Rock 'n' Roll heaven. I hope many women in the music industry learn a lot from you. Will be terribly missed.
RIP Chrissie Amphlett, we had the pleasure of your music and now we bear the pain of losing you,
I saw Chrissy perform at the Playpen nightclub in Cairns many years ago. I will always remember you in your schoolgirl costume shining that silver mirror into the audience and lifting up your skirt. You had a truly powerful and unique Australian voice in the music industry, raw and sensual. Farewell Chrissy, for you will always remain the Queen of Australian Rock. Our Sleeping Beauty is now with the southern cross above :)
My teenage years were spent every night listening over and over to a cassette tape until it wore so thin it could last no more. A true legend of the australian music scene ..... What a life
From the Tivoli to the narrabeen antler and the many places in between,singing and dancing, we all wanted to be just like you. THANKYOU for sharing your voice, your talent and your life with us all. RIP CHRISSY

Thank you for being you. I will always enjoy the Divinyls music that I grew up with. Your pain has gone now and the world will not be the same without you. Rest in Peace Chrissy. You will not be forgotten xx
I searched and searched for a copy of Chrissy's book Pleasure and Pain, and finally was able to secure a copy last year (living in the States and in Minnesota no less made this a pretty astounding feat!). I read that book cover to cover and marveled at this tough, resilient, brave, crazy, wonderful woman. I'm so sad to hear the news of her passing, but knowing the pain she suffered in her final days, I hope she has found peace now. I'll be listening to her here in Minneapolis, and celebrating her life.
Disbelief! Australia's sad loss.Keep on partying girl, you will have great company Mark Hunter, Michael Hutchence etc... and what a 'great' party it will be. Thanks for the memories. Never forgotten.
Australia's sad loss.
God bless her soul god is wAtching over her
Thanks for all the good feelings you brought out in us, will miss you
Death takes your body but never your life. Rest in peace my friend as your memory lives on and on.
an inspirational,strong woman. You were the soundtrack to my youth. RIP Chrissy
From my introduction to Divinyls in 1983 as an exchange student from the U.S. 'til this day, I have been a massive Divinyls fan and had a boundless fascination and love for Christina Amphlett. She continues to be the tour guide through my 30 year-old memories of Australia. I am deeply saddened at the loss of this iconic Aussie...sadder still that I never had the opportunity to meet her and thank her for the memories!
I loved your music. I hope your now singing with the Angels.
To Chrissy's Family and Friends. I am very sorry for your loss.
Chrissy will live on in our hearts forever...
For all those Sydney pub gigs. Each epic. Thank you.
Still waiting for my ship to come in. Good night out Sleeping Beauty.
Vale Chrissy. Divine, spirited, talented, our own amazing rock chick. Your music plays in my head now as it did then. You will be missed. Blessings to Chrissy's family and friends. A star is shining in the universe above us.
Wow what a lady! I recall watching you when I was 17. Powerful performer. . Great great singer. Sexy beyond belief. Your music and songs kept me sane through those tough growing up years. Thank you Chrissy!!!!
What very sad news of chrissy passing away,such a wonderful performer and a beautiful person to boot.RIP pretty one,heaven has got a special performer coming up.
So sorry to hear of Chrissy's passing. Many years ago, I met Chrissy on The Fairstar going to England. We became buddies and hitch-hiked around Europe together. She was a wild child and got us into all sorts of trouble. LOL. But those adventures make for great memories. It will treasure them always. I'm so honoured to have shared a few crazy months of her amazing life. RIP, Chrissy.
As a fellow musician I must Thank You for not just your music, but also the influence you have given me & my musical style, as well as teaching me just how potent and important a performer can be in full flight; something I hope one day I to can do.
I've listened to your music almost endlessly since age 4 (I'm 23 now), and it is fair to say that it has shaped a lot of my knowledge.
Thank You, I love you and I miss you. RIP \m/
My rocker girl is gone which brings me to tears, but the music she left will last all of my years.
Australian music will never forget you and your music will remain a very big part of the soundtrack of my own life.
Love you Chrissy.
Our own rock chick is now our rock angel. Thanks for the music. RIP dear Chrissy
Oh Chrissy only last week I thought of you and wondered how you were....in this case no news was not good news...you were so unique and fascinating and.....amazing to watch. I am glad for you that you no longer have to bear the terrible pain of ms and cancer. How brave and courageous... thank you for giving so much to us all. You will be missed so much.
It was like yesterday that I first watched you do your thing.
Chrissy, you were and will remain on of those rare artists that made a difference. RIP Your earned it

We lost you way too young Chrissy, but believe me, your music will live forever in our hearts. It does mine. RIP Chrissy x
Chrissie, I'm fighting breast cancer too. You were an inspiration and I will miss knowing you are out there, kicking butt. You showed me how. Rest easy, without pain, you did everything you could.
Without a doubt the greatest female rock singer Australia will ever see. Your name is indelibly stamped on the Australian songbook in capital letters. Rest in peace Chrissy.
R.I.P Chrissy Amphlett, you will be sadly missed, but never forgotten.
Thank you for the music and the memories :(

Dear Chrissy,I seen you and the band playing Manly Beach in 86,first song was science fiction.The fact I remember it to this day is testament to your greatness.Thank You. R.I.P
Chrissy's music got me through some very abusive and dysfunctional relationships. Her songs still make me cry which is a testament to what a great narrator she was. She was an amazing inspiration for girls and women, strong, raw and full of guts. There is no other Chrissy Amphlett.
When the good die young, it's so so sad.
Deepest condolences to her loved ones.
Farewell Chrissy; you were a fantastic and influential performer, and your legacy will live on in your music. RIP
Rest in peace Christina. Great loss. It was a pleasure and privilege hanging out with you and Mark in the 80's in Sydney.

Farewell to a rock legend and a lady that took us to places nobody else dared, very courageous.
Saw you perform at the Thebby Theatre in Adelaide supporting Chisel before you were really popular. You were amazing! You always will be!
Absolutely gutted to hear this sad news. Many a great night watching the Divinyls tear it up on stage. One night at the Roxy in Brissy in the mid-eighties was one of the best gigs I have ever seen - she was unbelievably charismatic - the ultimate rock chick. RIP Chrissy. X
Goodbye Christine .... now you can relax.. all the suffering is over .. see you when I get up there xx

Chrissy, you helped form the soundtrack of my life - when i hear your music it takes me straight back those great early years with some wonderful memories. There will never be another one like you.

And met you in Noosa at your book lauch. Your strength of character and stage antics will be remembered always...Thank you x

Mark Walkden, South Australia
Thank you for the Music and memories,One of Australia's Great female Artists,Will miss you Chrissy
You were the original Rock Chick... You will be forever remembered for your awesome talent... RIP Chrissy from another MSer.... ?
I am devastated at the loss of Chrissy (C J). So many early days memories of the wild Melb Uni and Roxy days. I know you never thought your self as a 'star'. All the years of dealing with your M S to be taken by such a relentless cancer is just so sad. My thoughts are with the Amphlett and Drayton Families and expecialy Charlie. "Pleasure and Pain"
She has been the only rock idol I ever had. I have been dreading this day since I first heard the news of Chrissy's illnesses a few years ago. I have she'd many tears today. To Chrissy's family, the pain of loss will never go away, there are so many that will share that pain. We will all learn to live with that pain, and we will never forget the amazing woman that was Chrissy Amphlett.
The darkest hour is that before the dawn,where all beneath the
Southern Cross unconscious rests & only those who mourn,
value the silence through their loss. Thoughts are with you Leigh
I'll not forget that you made me get up at 4am to speak on Skype for our Sunday Night interview on CCSVI last year! I didn't mind one bit - I'll not forget how our conversation flowed with passion for what we believed in, our common struggles with MS and quest for the very best life can give. You said to me, "we have to bring CCSVI to all of Australia" and we did it last April. The depth of hope you portrayed inspired and spurred me to keep going. Rest peacefully. I never did get that hug you promised - maybe one day. xx
The Queen of Australian RocknRoll... RIP Chrissy... You were awesome
Wow.... This is such a loss.... I remember when I saw Divinyls live in Rockhampton.... RIP Chrissy..... You were a big part of my life growing up.... Thank you so much for sharing your voice with me....
Dear Chrissie you astounded and astonished with your voice and your courage in all things. You lived your life "your way" and provided inspiration for many female singers and performers. You are a legend and I will always have such good memories of you and your amazing gift. You can rest now after giving it an almighty effort. Anne xx

I will miss you. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Veq6hW2-kqQ

Chrissy, such a sassy, interesting and strong beautiful woman. I cried when I read of your passing. 2010 was also the year I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, having my chemotherapy and radiotherapy in your birthplace Geelong. I read of your struggles with Breast Cancer and the problems the MS was creating for your treatment, and I hoped that the medial professionals would overcome them for you. Your family and friends have lost a loved one, the Australian Music Scene has lost a true leader and inspiration, a woman with attitude. You will be sadly missed. Love and thoughts to your family. Yes "I touch myself" should be promoted as your legacy to the fight against Breast Cancer
First met Chrissy in Maleny, Sunshine Coast, Queensland around 1993. Fabulous lady. So incredibly sad to hear the news of her passing. Condolences to family and friends. RIP lovely lady.

You were the music of my youth that I shared with my daughter and will share again. Fine line between pleasure and pain is a line sung often in our home. A come on get up if you really want this kind of line. Thank you for the music and the fun. You are Australia's ultimate diva. You will be missed. K

aussies top rock chick and a top person love your music and style noone like you rip chrissy
Oh Chrissie.I never thought this day would come so soon.I feel so sad and empty tonight on the news that you have passed to a greater rock show.I was 13 when I discovered your hot rock band and your voice and lyrics got me through a tough time at an even tougher high school.I followed you through your career and cherished your song "Jealous",made so much sense.Then the battle for your life with MS was devastating to watch it take it's toll on you.But you fought it with such girl strength, as you did with the breast cancer.You asked "why me" and I ask the same.Just knowing that you gave some many people of my age a good reason to be a strong soul is incredible.Your life is remembered with so much fondness for your talent,fight in a man's world and you have conquered it all.Now you can rest and rest in the painless peace you deserve so much.We love you, rock on in the stars xxxxxx
A strong women with a strong voice I didnt know you only of you and for this I thankyou... R.I.P chrissy xxx

RIP Chrissy and much love to the family and friends she has left behind.
Chrissy, I grew up with you,I'm only a couple of years younger,I will miss you x
This is incredibly sad news. Chrissy was a genuine original and The Divinyls were a serious force in Australian music, becoming recognised overseas. Chrissy's combination with Mark McEntee has to be one of the best this country has ever produced. She shall be remembered by me and many fans for a long time to come. RIP Chrissy Amphlett
RIP Chrissy - one of the greats.
What a terrible end after such an incredible career. The double tragedy of MS and breast cancer would be one of the more harrowing experiences one could endure during their final years. My sympathies to her husband and other dear ones to her. Rest well, Chrissy.

I saw "The Divinyl" at The Chevron in Melbourne and loved them..Chrissy was fantastic!! Much too young to leave this world...
In life you meant so much to so many. Seeing you play in Fortitude Valley in the early 90's really made mine and other young blokes night. All of us thought how good is this lady. You were Australia's rock goddess. The loss your loved ones are feeling is like shared by your adoring fans.
Your name will be a bright light in Australian music history forevermore.
May you rest in peace.
Bless your soul Christina, you will be missed by so many, but never forgotten.
The same age as me, I grew up listening to your amazing voice and powerful songs. I always envied and applauded your talent, a voice that was distinctive and only yours. I am so sad and send my love and sympathies to your family. Things will never be quite the same.
Chrissy, I saw you perform in LA in 1983. You were 24 and I was 25. Your effervescent, unique and truly mesmerising performances took every audience into another realm. You will be remembered as one of Australia's greatest performers of our generation. Rest in Peace Chrissy

I am at a loss for words. Chrissy you inspired me, you gave me confidence to get up on stage and be myself. The gift you have given Australian music is profound and wonderful. You have entertained us, you have taken us on part of your musical journey with you. Thank you a thousand times over. Peace and love to your family and friends. Sleep sweet in a world without pain, and keep rocking the world. xxx Sal Badcock, a devoted fan
What a tragedy. A great talent and a spunk. Saw her in concert in 81 at Aussie Rules Club in Wagga, support act to the Angels. One of the great Oz Rock lead singers. RIP Chrissie, you were truly great.
An Aussie rock icon a great loss, will be sadly missed.
The music that Chrissy & her creative partner produced was unique, creatively courageous and just great! Chrissy's voice was distinctive and strong-the sound of Chrissy's voice was present in my younger years and I always admired and respected Chrissy as a musician. We can't know the length of our journey here on Earth, but Chrissy is one who made her presence known in a very good way. I offer my best wishes and deepest sympathy to her family, and those whose lives Chrissy enriched with her wonderful music.I think all of Australia's music community is saddened by Chrissy's passing.
What a wonderful talent lost to all of us.Chrissy seems to have crammed more in to 53 years than most can in 80. Rest easy Chrissy.
I remember you busting onto the Aussie music scene wearing your school tunic and a gorgeous pout, you made me want to be a singer when I grew up. It took me a while to get going..but I finally did it. Thankyou for the wonderful music, your powerful messages and your inspiration. Fly free from pain and look down on us with fond memories..because we will always have nothing but love for you Ms Amphlett xox

Another true blue Aussie music legend has joined the 'one hell of a band'. Chrissy was a true pioneer for Aussie women in rock music, adapting from a sweaty bar stage to live theatre at the drop of a hat. So, from this baby boomer, thanks Chrissy for the great songs & memories. You've earned your in our music history.

Chrissy your memory will live on through the amazing music you have left behind, many memories I have of my younger days have divinyls soundtracks attached to them, your music is legendary in the Aussie landscape, thanks for all the awesome hits!
Very sad to hear of your passing.
You were a trail blazer and star...... You will always be remembered.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow
You were every teenage boys dream, stomping around the stage belting out a tune with such unbridled sexual energy. I had the pleasure of seeing you perform live many times over the years and it was such a sheer delight. For all her fans take the time to watch the film clip to "Sleeping Beauty", it captures Chrissy at her best and is quite an apt legacy. RIP, there will never be another like you.
Loved you Chrissy, you were always an inspiration. I hope you rest well, you deserve it.
RIP Chrissie. I had the amazing opportunity to work for Divinyls Management when I was only 16. Chrissie was a true pioneer to other aussie women in rock. Her music will live on forever.. Rock On Chrissie ? Gone but not forgotten..

Your memory will live on.
A great Australian singer and pioneering woman of rock. R.I.P Chrissy. Heaven is a rocking tonight.
So very sad. A wonderful talent and wonderful person RIP
I remember getting "I touch myself" on cassingle and wearing the poor tape out. I still play that song (on an iPod) and the intro just makes me smile as I know a classic song is about to start. Chrissy, to me, seemed to have that ultimate combination - cool and clever.
When I think of Chrissy from now on I will touch myself. What a wonderful legacy - to leave a song to remind us to check our breasts.
i loved the songs a auzzie icon they will remain with me forever condolences to all the family col brewer perth wa
Another great 80's rocker gone, Love is Science Fiction.

Chrissy, to see you perform live was to see a real rocker. Very few of the girls these days could hold a candle to your stage presence. You were real and not manufactured & oh, so sexy! With respect, affection & great memories ...
Extending my sympathies to Chrissy's family at this time of grief but in the knowledge that she was an iconic rock chick who took no prisoners. Even to this day her on stage persona and performances still set the mark for band front men and women to achieve. She will be sadly missed
