[quote]1948: Born Wagga Wagga NSW.Australia.
1952: Family moved to Melbourne (Moonee Ponds, then Essendon). The first time I heard Rock'n'Roll was on a crystal set. Artists such as Fats Domino, Little Richard, Bill Haley and Chuck Berry.
1957: Through the year I saved pocket money and bought my first guitar at Allens Music. It was a plywood box with strings, and cost 9 guineas.
1963:During this year I started writing poetry, enamoured with Jack Kerouac, Allen Ginsberg and Be-Bop, thanks to my older brother Graham.In a Caulfield High School talent quest, Micheal and I won 30 bob each, and this first taste of playing in public changed my life.
1965: I also started hanging out at folk clubs, occasionally filling in between other players with a couple of songs and paid with coffees. Some influences at this time were Bob Dylan, Dave Van Ronk,Townes Van Zandt, Phil Ochs, John Prine and Richie Havens.In mid '65, I met my second musical partner-in-crime, Chris Fogaty. We played folk clubs in Melbourne and Geelong.It was 12 string guitar, harmonica, jaw harp, finger cymbals and kalimba, all of which went into the gumbo of folk blues we played.
1969: Met Bob Bright (Bobby and Laurie)1970: My first tour. Bob introduced Paul Pyle and myself to Frank Esler Smith (Musical Director-Marcia Hines Band and ex-Doug Parkinson), who along with drummer Ross Sutton backed Del Shannon around Australia.
1971: Saltbush line-up: Bernie O'Brien (ex-Bobby & Laurie's Rondells, ex- Merv Benton's Tamlas), vocals, lead guitar, dobro and fiddle. Harold Frith (ex-Thunderbirds), vocals and drums. Paul Pyle (ex-Johnny O'Keefe Band ,ex-Hot Dog with Gary Young), vocals and double bass. Ross Nicholson, vocals and guitar.
1976:Saltbush released their first album, "At Twin Rivers"
1977: Saltbush won the Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards for New Talent of the Year with their song Sassafras Gap". (Rainbird Records).
1978: Marty Robbins Tour of Australia, Slim Dusty Tour,released their second album self-titled "Saltbush". Produced by Mark Moffatt.Australia's representative at the second annual Tulsa International Music Festival spotlighting artists from the Jim Halsey Corporation's roster including Tammy Wynette, Don Williams, Rick Nelson, Roy Clark, Reba McEntire and The Oak Ridge Boys, (Who loaned us their spare P.A. "cos the hire job was dodgy")
1979:The band won another award at The Tamworth Golden Guitar Awards for Best Vocal Harmony with their song "Stranger". (EMI).
1983 - 1993: Spot The Aussie
1993:I quit Spot The Aussie, followed by "The Dark Years".......
2002:Started to write songs again after a 10 year block.
2008:Started recording some new songs with Andy Burns, which was my first encounter with recording via computer.
2011:After 53 years of playing solo, duo, trio and in several bands (Saltbush, The Tex Nobody Show, Road Dogs, Thunderbox, and Spot The Aussie), and having written over eighty new and re-written songs during my semi-retirement, I was looking for a way to record a couple and test the waters.
Enter Joe Hiltz (Co-Producer and old mate), who had recently built a studio out back. We recorded two songs of mine with acoustic guitar and rough vocal. Two days later I walked into the studio to find Mark Kennedy putting drum tracks on my songs.
Within an hour "Quarter Past Late" was born.
2012: Tracks recorded on a shoestring, and a lot of help from my friends.
2014: "Quarter Past Late" released.
