Producer and recording artist Rupert Hine has died at the age on 72. He had been battling with cancer.

Hine is best known to Australians for his 1981 hit ‘Misplaced Love’. The song, also featuring Marianne Faithfull on vocals, reached no 22 in Australia.

As a record producer Rupert Hine worked on ‘The Getaway’ for Chris DeBurgh, Tina Turner’s ‘Private Dancer’ and ‘Break Every Rule’, Howard Jones’ ‘Human Lib’, Bob Geldof’s ‘Deep In The Heart of Nowhere’, Thompson Twins ‘Close To The Bone’, Stevie Nicks ‘The Other Side of the Mirror’ as well as albums by The Fixx, Robert Palmer, Rush, Katey Sagel, Dusty Springfield and Norman Cook.

Over 50 years Hine had worked on over 130 albums.

According to his website, “Rupert pioneered electronic musical instrument interfaces with the fledgling MIDI. Invited by Apple in the 90s to help demonstrate the powers of their ground-breaking software engines to the music-world’s creative thinkers, Rupert has consistently championed the incorporation of the digital environment into art and creativity”.
