Colin Hay Gives Ted Cruz Some Free Advice

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on April 1, 2016

Leave it to Colin Hay, the former Men at Work lead, to tell a candidate for U.S. President how he might better get votes.

Ted Cruz was a guest recently on Jimmy Kimmel who asked him a series of random questions including asking him the first concert he attended. His reply, “Men at Work. Tamest concert on earth. I went with my mother.”

Well, Hay, who is well known for his sense of humor, decided to write a short note to Ted on his Facebook page:

Dear Mr Cruz,

I was informed this evening, that Men At Work was the first concert you ever attended. I hope you enjoyed the show all those years ago. I myself had a grand old time, being my first visit to this fair land.

Far be it from me to offer you any advice, but I feel compelled. I think that on any and every political issue upon which you’ve taken a stand, if you could pretty much just head off in the opposite direction, this will serve you in good stead.

You don’t have to thank me now

Peace and Love

Colin

Cruz also had a comment for Kimmel on Donald Trump. “If I was in my car getting ready to reverse and I saw Donald in the back-up camera, I’m not sure which pedal I would push.”

There was something special about seeing Colin Hay perform a full show with his international band. He was extremely relaxed. Maybe that’s because it was his last show on the tour, maybe the home-town gig is always the best one, maybe he was in good company with wife in the band. The amazing Cecilia Noēl added a totally different feel to the performance.
