It was the early ’80s, and the Cabbage Tree Patch in Wollongong was packed full.
Friday night and my brother and I were out to see a band. I drew the short straw and went to get a couple of beers and nearly didn’t make it back.
In the end I choose to sip my beer and watch the band. Like nothing I have ever seen or will see again!
Tonight’s band was Chrissie Amphlett and Divinyls. We had heard only a couple of their hits but never saw them live.
Chrissie Amphlett never stopped. She wore the audience out. We were so hot, she poured a jug of water over herself. And kept going.
Even to the last she kept going. A life fully lived!
