    @ Bongie and Moosie

    No not Rixhard, although he has been to aa couple of shows-

    Current guitarist is Mark Wilkinson- one of the later guitarists who also played in The Girlies- whose drummer now plays with us.

    That reminds me- I gotta update our myspace with Wilko's pic !

    The last time we played with hard Ons was in Sydney late last year for a festival called CRUELTY FREE Living Festival. It was at Belmore Park across from Central Station- around 5000 hippies rocking out and eating vegan hamburgers.

    Blackie played a solo acoustic gig there too- was hosted by Lindsay from Frenzal Rhomb/ JJJ .

    @ Chickenlover- what gig ? What Show ? WHO ARE YOU CHICKEN MAN ??!


    Also went to Australia's first sports high school in NSW on a Rugby League scholarship- Harry Kewell was in my year, lots of league players included Mick Buettner, Liam Fulton, Jarryd Hayne, Luke O Donnell, Micheal Clarke, Leon Bott, Mark Minichello.

    I bet they are all SO proud i swapped the NSW Schoolboys Jersey for a Gibson Les Paul.

    and yeah WEEZER I was atleast HOPING someone would remember them now ...that claim to fame was bought up many a time when using the HOW NOT TO USE DRUGS OR ALCOHOL in topics at the dinner table and the fact I was a coppers kid ,and it happened at a BLUE LIGHT disco ...was pretty famous for a few months afterwards ...and my mum used it many a time too ..you know the 'shame bought to the family speech ' ,,,,,,, :)

    I think it is fitting to tell my tale from years ago.

    NYE 98-99 I was working in the Police Force in Sydney. I was down at The Rocks on that night. At 12am, a stunning girl came up to wish me happy new year. I proceeded to kiss her and also had my hand up her very short skirt and it was resting on her rear. Unbeknown to either of us, a reporter for The Telegraph took a photo and we were both on the front page the next day.
    After 2 months of restricted station duties and getting my bum kicked from Sydney to Melbourne and back, all was good.
    A lot of people to this day still say they remember the photo.
