Wow our old friends Borderstone & Joveski together in one thread. Good to hear from you two even under sad circumstances. Be careful though, with you two posting can The Watchman be far behind?

First to Bill...hi there. Yes,I'm still a member here. I just don;t post as often as I did in my first,say,5 years here. I've calmed down quite a bit since the start of this decade.

When it's really important or catches my intrest,I'll be here.

Thanks Joveski,I had hoped you'd reply as well. Such a bummer. I found this news online but glad as I am that it's not foul play,I'm still holding out it wasn't him taking his own life.

From : 20 April 2012


In an interview with the ABC on Friday, Men At Work frontman Colin Hay said Ham had been "hit very hard" by a court's ruling that the band plagiarised the distinctive flute riff in their worldwide hit Down Under.

Ham, who joined the band in 1979, played the riff which a court ruled had been lifted from Kookaburra, a song which was written in 1934 by Australian schoolteacher Marion Sinclair for a Girl Guides competition.

"But as far as (Ham) was concerned, he did feel, the times that I spoke to him, he was obviously upset about it and felt responsible for playing the line, even though it was innocuous," he said.

After the ruling, Ham told friends he would never see another cent out of the song again. "He was a very sensitive person. It really cut him apart," he said.
