After 12 solo albums compared to his old band’s three, Colin Hay is still referred to as “former Men At Work” singer.
Hay joins Noise11 at iHeartRadio this week to talk about his transition and how he told the story in his documentary ‘Waiting For My Real Life’ ahead of his Australian dates.
Mick Hucknall of Simply Red tells us how he “grew up” and Skyhooks’ Greg Macainsh recalls the success 1990 reunion that generated the biggest selling Australian song of the year from the band.
With tours galore on the way there is live Jackson Browne, Bruce Springsteen and Black Sabbath.
Jon Stevens has a new song with a rap from his son Levi Jay. There is also the first new music in 20 years from Lush, rare Jeff Buckley, soul and blues from Mavis Staples and Tom Waits as well as a taste of Americana Australiana style from Henry Wagons.
