As a follow-up to our previous post about the Australia tour, here’s a great shot from the 8/25/02 Sydney Harbour Cruise of the Handsome One exchanging a “good onya”’ with Bill Gibson of the Eastern Dark.
The Eastern Dark was a fantastic Australian band back in the 1980s, whose “Johnny and Dee-Dee” 45 belongs in every music library that’s worth a toss. They used to cover “Minnesota Strip” back in their early days, and were gobsmacked when the Master Plan returned the honor by covering “Walking” on their first lp.
Many thanks to Bill Gibson for the use of the photo, and for the Aussie spell check on “Harbour.”
