May has not been a good month for the Australian music scene. Sadly, May 17, 2012 Mal McGhee passed away.
Mal, remembered by some from his Wild Cherries days with Lobby Lloyde RIP; The Virgil Bros with Peter Doyle RIP and Rob Lovett. I will never forget his formidable prescence in Python Lee Jackson.
Python Lee Jackson performed twice weekly at Rhubarbs, a cavern-like venue in Douglass Lane off Liverpool Street, Sydney in 1966.
Mal McGhee ~ vocals, Llyod Hardy ~ bass RIP, Dave Montgomery ~ drums, Ian Walsh ~ keyboards, Mick Liber ~ lead, Dave Bentley ~ keyboards. PLJ is one of the fines bands Australia has produced.
