Vale Doc Neeson

Really sad to hear just now that Doc Neeson of the Angels has died after a long battle with brain cancer.
Recently saw him on Australian Story in early May - he said then he probably only had a few months to live. He looked really ill.

An iconic, charismatic frontman in his day - the Angels were an integral part of the Aussie pub rock scene in the late 70s/80s.

Re: Vale Doc Neeson

Same here. I'll definitely be giving 'Howling' a spin over the week.

Re: Vale Doc Neeson

I wonder if Rage will air some kind of tribute... presumably so, but it will be interesting to see if it's just a couples of videos (or maybe even one!), an hour or so on Saturday morning, or a full-blown special.

Re: Vale Doc Neeson

I would think they'll do a full special, with an extensive selection of Angels/Doc clips and interviews.
Might take them a while to put it together though.

Like them or not , Doc and the Angels have been one of the most high profile/well known Aus bands, especially throughout the late 70s and 80s.

Re: Vale Doc Neeson

They have given a 90min slot on Saturday morning. The Factory and GTK clips should be good to see.

Re: Vale Doc Neeson

Thanks Guru.
Yes, those Factory and GTK segments should be interesting.

Disappointing not to see a clip for 'Out of The Blue' in there - probably my favourite Angels song.
