    Harvey James, guitarist extroardinaire with Sherbet and also with the Richard Clapton band on the Great Escape album and tour of 1982, passed away from a long battle with cancer on Saturday night. I guess the Gimme That Guitar benefit gig at the Factory Theatre on Feb 17 (sold out), will now also be a memorial concert. RIP Harvey.

    Also, Steve Prestwich, drummer with Cold Chisel, passed away yesterday afternoon, succumbing to a brain tumour. RIP Steve.

    I thought 2011 was supposed to be better. :(

    Only read in the paper this am about Harvey and almost at the same time over the news about Steve :cry:

    We all hope and pray that the next year will be better than the last but seems they just keep getting worse :umm:

    R.I.P. So much talent lost. The below song is my all time favourite and written by Steve Prestwich (and the best version I've seen).

    Really sad for his family as one of his brothers ,Dave, also died 5 months ago.

    The above version of When the War is Over, is the best, always gives me goosebumps.
