I'd not heard that one before.

See? Huge gaps ... or maybe a little before my time.

This changed everything for guitarists:

Tom's also a passionate vegetarian, as well as being a children and animal rights advocate.

He's set up a few charities.

Must be in his 70s now :?

Great guitarist!

There's this one, from the '80s:

The singer died some time ago.

I'd not heard that one either. Sounds like it would have been played on the commercial stations which i've never really listened to.

Whichever was in the recordings from the 70s.

I just missed seeing them a couple of years ago. They were playing at a local stadium at the end of a minor league baseball game with Ambrosia. I found out the day after. :oops

Glenn.

He's a fantastic entertainer.

After he left the LRB - and Farnham stepped in - he went on to do theatre shows across the country.

He'd impersonate people like Tina Turner, Buddy Holly, Mick Jagger, etc. all in a two hour one man show.

Then came John Farnham:

Some of you might be wondering about the number 1 album on my list.

This is the single that came from the album:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zZBQGCI2hm0



The entire album is a masterpiece. Without a doubt my favourite album ever.

I was lucky enough to meet Andy when he came to Australia to promote that album, and have remained close friends with him ever since.

For those who have no idea who he is, he replaced Stan Ridgway in Wall Of Voodoo.

This is Andy in Wall of Voodoo:
