The Hoodoo Gurus (and Suzi Quatro)

In 1985 Matt Snow and I spent a day with the Hoodoo Gurus, in Fitzroy & St. Kilda, to do an article for "Sounds Magazine". They were the biggest band in Australia at the time, and their pix were taken at the ABC Studios in Ripponlea, on the top of the Countdown studio roof.

After their photo shoot, Brad Shepherd and Dave Faulkner came running to find me in the corridors, desperately wanting me to take a photo of them with the even more famous Suzi Quatro, who was also appearing on Countdown that day.

It goes to show that famous musicians can also get star struck. I also love the very bemused look on Suzie's face.
