Never heard of him?
If you don’t live in Australia (and possibly even if you) that’s not too surprising. But to many of us he was an icon, forming a band (The Saints) with a couple of guys he met during school detention and forever thereafter refusing to be bound by convention.
He died a couple of days ago and will be sadly missed.
For anyone who is interested, a quick internet search will provide plenty of details of his better known works (that his songs have been covered by Bruce Springsteen might provide a hint of credibility for you Americans), but, as a small tribute, I offer something that was just a bit of fun, and recorded relatively recently.
