COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
Just heard on the news this morning of the passing of Rock Legend Stevie Wright at age 68. Fell ill on Boxing Day and died Sunday at Moruya Hospital in New South Wales South Coast. He and the group The Easybeats were up there amongst the best alongside The Rolling Stones & The Beatles during the Mid to late 1960s. He will be sadly missed and hope Rage pays a fitting tribute very soon. Farewell Stevie.
It's a very good tribute on Saturday morning. I don't think I've seen the Aunty Jack's Rox On footage

Gary, the Stevie Wright tribute will re-air in full tonight on ABC3, from probably around 11:45pm (2 and a quarter hours in), depending on what time rage starts on ABC3 (often it starts later than advertised).
I attended Stevie Wright's funeral service last Friday. While it was nice to be there I must admit that I was disappointed with the amount of other music artists in their attendance considering he was so well loved by everybody. Those there that I could notice were John Paul Young and Tim Rogers who performed during the service. Others that were in attendance were Glenn Shorrock, Glenn A. Baker, Snowy (Easybeats drummer), Colin & Denny Burgess (Masters Apprentices) and later I did see Phil Jamieson from Grinspoon. I also caught up with 60s mod singer Dinah Lee outside the church who is a doll. There were a few other music industry people there yet no sign of Harry Vanda or George Young which was somewhat disappointing. Graham Buzz Bidstrup (The Angels) and his wife Kay Bee (Gangajang) who are friends of mine also were in attendance as was Donnie Sutherland (Sounds). Having said that I would not of missed it for the world. Thank you Stevie Wright & The Easybeats for helping to pioneer Australian music to the world. 🙁🙂👍🏼
