Chris Cheney, Phil Jamieson, Kram, Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers to celebrate the music of The Easybeats
You’d be hard-pressed to find five men more revered in Australian rock’n’roll than Chris Cheney, Phil Jamieson, Kram, Tex Perkins and Tim Rogers.
And you’d better have a damn good argument if you want to contest the fact that The Easybeats are hands down one of the greatest bands this country has ever produced.
Bring these two forces of Australian rock’n’roll together, and you’ve got Easyfever. A supergroup dedicated to bringing the music and energy of The Easybeats to life again.
If you’re concerned about their dedication, a few comments made in a statement announcing the tour should put you at ease. These guys are well aware of the task at hand.
‘’The Easybeats were not only the best band to ever come out of this country, they are by far the most influential band to ever come out of this country,” Perkins said. “We all owe a great deal of gratitude to them.’’
“The Easybeats have loomed so large in my imagination since I first heard them age eight. Their aggression and finesse, the sexuality and cheek has been a template for any band I’ve been involved in,” Rogers added.
These five gents will be flanked by a hotshot band featuring Jak Housden (The Whitlams), Ashley Naylor (Even), Dario Bortolin (Baby Animals), Dave Hibbard (Joe Bonamassa) and Clayton Doley (Divinyls), bringing the best out of these iconic tunes.
They will also delve into the acclaimed solo work of frontman Stevie Wright, whose 1973 debut Hard Road stands up with his previous band’s work as a true Aussie rock’n’roll classic.
