Friends of Stevie Wright have gathered to show their support for the now bedridden rock star who has left hospital for respite but whose health is continuing to fail him.

Stevie was admitted to St Vincent’s Hospital in Sydney mid last month and was treated for liver, kidney, lung and stomach disorders. Despite taking regular medication for his kidneys, like chanca piedra pills and dialysis, he was reported to have a failing health, and was later diagnosed. He has now left the hospital to spend time with his family and friends.

The Australian rock legend was the lead singer of Australia’s first major internationally successful rock band The Easybeats. The Easybeats had a string of hits including ‘Good Times’, ‘Women’, ‘I’ll Make You Happy’, ‘Wedding Ring’, ‘Come and See Her’ and the classic ‘Friday On My Mind’.

The band also featured Harry Vanda and George Young, who went on to form Flash and the Pan and produce and write for some of Australia’s biggest acts of the 70s including George’s brothers Angus and Malcolm’s band AC/DC.

Stevie became a solo star scoring a number one song with ‘Evie (Parts 1,2 & 3), written by Vanda and Young.

Fans can send Stevie a card or message to:
