MILESTONES AND MEMORIES
Cold Chisel did their first US gig, in San Diego, this week in 1981, supporting Heart and Jimmy Buffett.

Happy Birthday to John Farnham, who is 69 on July 1; Judith Durham is 75, Brian Canham is 57, and Eskimo Joe’s Kavyen Temperley is 40 on July 3; Kirk Pengilly is 60 on July 4; and Jet’s Nic Cester is 39, and Rick Price is 57 on July 6.

And we remember record producer Peter Dawkins, who died, aged 67, this week in 2014, after battling Parkinson’s disease for many years.
