Re: Rob Hirst
Yeah this thread deserves much more content than what it's got so far!!!
Rob probably isn't the most "technical" drummer on Earth, but who cares? The way he integrated with the other 4, the lyrics he wrote with Jim, his occasional use of a cocktail kit in the later years, his energy & the way he played being a true "showman" was awesome. Who else users a rainwater tank in their solos??? I've seen him so many times with The Oils, The Ghostwriters & a gig with Paul Greene, loved them all. But you're right, Aussie pub rock in the 80's will never be replaced... live music, it's just not the same anymore.
