Today is the sad day of the death of Greg Ham, the brilliant flautist and saxaphone player of one of my all time favorite groups Men at Work.
I grew up listening to Men at Work as a kid in Australia. The song “Down Under” was like a national anthem to us. To me as a kid it made me feel very cool to be Australian, and encapsulated the spirit that Australians have of being rebellious and free spirited.
As I grow up, more and more of the people who were part of my youth are dying. I will always feel a tinge of warmth and remembrance of lost youth when I listen to the classic “Down Under”
