Beeb posted to his Facebook page, “Very much enjoyed my time writing with Brian Cadd today. It was the first time we ever tried to write a song together and I felt very comfortable with him. And the bonus was that we wrote a song! His comment was, “well, we’ve been doing this for quite a number of years now, you know?” And he’s right!”.

Beeb wrote Little River Band’s ‘Curiosity (Killed The Cat)’ and ‘I’ll Always Call Your Name’ on the first Little River Band album, ‘Everyday of My Life’, ‘Take Me Home’, ‘Broke Again’ (with Graeme Goble) and ‘Another Runway’ (with Rick Formosa) on ‘After Hours’, ‘Witchery’ and ‘Raelene Raelene’ on ‘Diamantina Cocktail’, ‘Red Headed Wildflower’ (with Ed Nimmervol), ‘Fall From Paradise’ (with Graeme Goble) and ‘Light Of Day’ and ‘Take Me Home’ on ‘Sleeper Catcher’, ‘Man On The Run’, ‘By My Side’ and ‘Middle Man’ (with Graeme Goble) on ‘First Under The Wire’, ‘Guiding Light’, ‘Suicide Boulevard’ (with Frank Howson) and ‘Ballerina’ (with Graeme Goble) on ‘Time Exposure’, ‘You’re Driving Me Out Of My Kind’ (with Graeme Goble), and ‘The Danger Sign’ with Frank Howson, ‘Mr Socialite’ and ‘No More Tears’ from ‘The Net’.

Cadd is an Australian rock legend. After starting out in The Groop and Axiom (with Glenn Shorrock) he went solo and had his own string of hits. His catalogue of songs includes ‘Show Me The Way’ (with Don Mudie), ‘Ginger Man’, ‘Let Go’, ‘A Little Ray of Sunshine’ and ‘Arkansas Grass’ (Axiom), as well as covers of ‘Your Mother Don’t Dance’ and ‘The Shoop Shoop Song’.
