I'd been wondering if he was sick, as he hadn't been in any of the Alberts documentaries from the last few years.

Heard on the radio on the way home. Sad day.
He and Harry Vanda stopped their writing and production a couple of years ago. I wasn’t sure whether he was ill or just retirement

I’m hoping to hit Rooty Hill or Revesby. None are very close to me. I was hoping the Cube st Campbelltown Catho would get them. No such luck :)

Enjoyed the show very much. “Pig” Morgan on the keys is 76 now, wow. Ronnie “Rockwell T James” Peel on bass must be up towards 70?

My first time at Revesby Workers, nice Club - though a bit smaller than I imagined. I’d go back for another show there when one pops up. A Zep Show is coming, so maybe then.

There was some gear out for another band in one of the bars. Noticed a bergantino 410 sitting there and I think a B amp on top. 1 large dial prominent so I guess that’s what it was.
