MILESTONES AND MEMORIES
We remember Sherbet guitarist Harvey James, who died of lung cancer, aged 58, this week in 2011. Harvey’s first recording with Sherbet was the chart-topping Howzat, and he had previously played with Mississippi and Ariel.The following day in 2011, Cold Chisel drummer Steve Prestwich died of a brain tumour, aged 56. Steve wrote the Chisel classics Forever Now and When The War Is Over and co-wrote Flame Trees.

Four years ago this week, Bruce Springsteen released his 18th studio album, High Hopes, featuring a cover of The SaintsJust Like Fire Would.

2JJ started broadcasting this week in 1975. Their first song was Skyhooks’ You Just Like Me Cos I’m Good In Bed. The station would later become Triple J.

Happy Birthday to Mental As Anything’s Andrew “Greedy” Smith, who is 62 on January 16. Olivia Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, is 32 on January 17.  Human Nature’s Michael Tierney is 41 on January 18. He shares a birthday with Damien Leith, winner of Australian Idol in 2006, who is turning 42. And media personality Ita Buttrose – who was immortalised in Cold Chisel’s Ita – is 76 on January 17.

And the great Johnny O’Keefe would have been 83 on January 19.
