Jim Keays Admitted To Hospital

Masters Apprentices’ singer Jim Keays has been admitted to hospital with pneumonia as he continues to fight his seven year battle with Multiple Myeloma.

Keays headlined the Masters of Rock Concert at Crown Casino in Melbourne on May 25 but was admitted to hospital the following day. Jim was then transferred to the Intensive Care Unit where he has been ever since. His condition is listed as stable.

Jim Keays was a founding member of the Masters Apprentices, one of Australia’s greatest rock bands of the 60s.

The Masters Apprentices had a string of hit songs including ‘Turn Up Your Radio’, ‘Living In A Child’s Dream’, ‘Because I Love You’, ‘Undecided’ and ‘5:10 Man’. The band was inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame in 1998.

In 2012 after being discharged from hospital Jim recorded one of his best albums ever, ‘Dirty Dirty’ with Ted Lethborg, Davey Lane and Brett Wolfenden. He is currently working on a follow-up to the album.
