Vale Billy Thorpe

One of the best shows I've ever seen was his mid 90's Aztecs comeback at the Myer Music Bowl.

His crowd of washed up rockers, bikie thugs, reprobates, lovely families, grandmas and grandpas with their grandkids, hipsters, dags, Hey Hey fans, my girly and me bowed to his gloriously loud rock and agreed, Thorpie's crayayzee!

Nobody's gonna rest in peace now Thorpie's up there.

Top bloke.

Great loss of a great Oz story teller. If you haven't read it, his book Sex, Thugs and Rock 'n Roll is brilliant. Brings life in Kings Cross in the sixties vividly to life.

Yeah, great book. I think I'm going to read it again soon.
