GLAMOBIT: Steve Hill

The death has been announced of Steve Hill, original singer with Australian glam act Skyhooks.

Steve was with the band from its formation in 1973, but it wasn't until he quit after a few months and was replaced by Shirley Strachan that the band took off, developing a reputation for frightening the horses with blokes in make-up and songs about wanking.

Steve recently rejoined his old band for a one-off reunion gig. He'd been living with cancer for some time; it finally overwhelmed him on Monday.
