Woodwindobit: Greg Ham

It's been quite a week for loss, so I'm a couple of days late with mentioning the death of Greg Ham, multi-instrumentalist with Men At Work.

The cause of Ham's death is still being investigated.

The Telegraph notes that Ham was deeply affected by the court decision that his riff in Down Under was lifted from an Australian kid's song, and even runs his quote that he hated thinking that this would be what he would be remembered for. Right at the end of the story about his death. Which might be a little insensitive.

So, instead, let's take a look a little further along Men At Work's debut album. This track features Ham on lead vocals, and he got a writing credit for it. A more fitting tribute:
