The Vanda & Young contribution to the great Australian songbook is never ending.
This weekend at Memo Music Hall eight “all-stars” will simmer the songlist and reduce the setlist to a two hour greatest hits show featuring the music of Easybeats, John Paul Young, Stevie Wright, Cheetah, The Angels, Rose Tattoo, AC/DC.
Harry Vanda & George Young were exclusively Easybeats at first before becoming the house songwriters for Albert Records. Their songs have been covered by Rod Stewart (Hard Road), Grace Jones (Walking In the Rain) and David Bowie (Friday On My Mind).
Together they wrote a catalogue of hits for John Paul Young, had their own hits independently as Flash & The Pan and produced the early albums for AC/DC, Rose Tattoo and The Angels.
