MELBOURNE (AFP) - Kylie Minogue, Boy George and Russell Crowe were among the star names tweeting their support Friday for Australian music industry legend Molly Meldrum, who was fighting for his life after a fall. Meldrum, a popular music critic, journalist, record producer and entrepreneur, has featured on the Australian music scene since the 1960s, nurturing local talent. The 65-year-old was unconscious in a Melbourne hospital after fracturing his skull, which led to bleeding on his brain, and puncturing a lung when he fell off a ladder while putting up Christmas decorations. Sending LOTS of love to Molly. Get well soon, Australian pop diva Kylie Minogue tweeted, while her sister Dannii said: Thinking of Molly Meldrum tonight. British singer Boy George tweeted Sending my prayers to Molly Meldrum in Australia while Hollywood star Russell Crowe also sent his support, saying: Sending Ian Meldrum love. Thinking of you mate. Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard also sent best wishes, saying: I know Molly well and just want to say Im thinking of him and wishing him all the best. Meldrum, whose real first name is Ian, is friends with many of the top names in the business across the world and has conducted interviews with figures from John Lennon and Mick Jagger to Madonna and Michael Jackson.
