Daddy Cool To Be Inducted Into The Age Music Victoria Hall of Fame

The legendary Daddy Cool will be inducted into the Hall of Fame at the next The Age Music Victoria Awards.

The Age Music Victoria Awards 2014 will take place in Melbourne on November 19.

The original Daddy Cool featuring Wayne Duncan, Ross Hannaford, Ross Wilson and Gary Young formed in 1970. Their debut single, released in May, 1971 became of the greatest rock hits of all time. Daddy Cool reached no. 1 with their debut album ‘Daddy Who? Daddy Cool’ and generated a second chart hit with Come Back Again’.

A second album ‘Sex, Dope, Rock’n’Roll, Teenage Heaven’ gave the band a third hit and another classic in ‘Hi Honey Ho’.

By 1973 it was all over and Wilson went on to form Mighty Kong, then Mondo Rock.

The band reformed in 2005 to play a benefit show for victims of the tsunami and in 2006 released a third studio album ‘The New Cool’. However, they have rarely played live since reforming.

“As you know, although we’re all four still working musicians, Daddy Cool reforms only for very special occasions,” said lead singer Ross Wilson. “We do get offers to play now and then, but we don’t tour and we don’t need to. This is not only a prestigious award – it’s a fun thing, getting together with other musicians, people saying nice things about us and having a few free drinks at the end of the night. That sounds like fun and that appeals to us. Daddy Cool has always been about having fun.”

Henry Wagons will host The Age Music Victoria Music Awards at 170 Russell. Russell Morris, Stonefield, and Jess Cornelius (Teeth & Tongue) will perform with musical director Pete Luscombe (RocKwiz) with the EG Allstars. Davey Lane will also perform a Jim Keays tribute.

Tickets are on sale Monday 4th August for $50+bf at 170russell.ticketscout.com.au/gigs/2805/
