For anyone interested in Rob, buy the Sound Relief DVD (the whole DVD is awesome). The Oils full concert from Melbourne is on there, songs are in order:

Redneck Wonderland
Read About It
Blue Sky Mine
Advance Australia Fair (Jim Moginie is awesome)
One Country
Beds Are Burning
King Of The Mountain
Dead Heart
Power & The Passion (see above)
Best Of Both Worlds
Sometimes.

I've been a huge fan of The Oils/Rob Hirst since Red Sails in '84. I finally met Rob last month in Adelaide, he was here playing with The Backsliders. We had a good chat after the show, he would have to be the most humble person I've ever met. Nothing was too much trouble for him, chatting, photos etc... many other muso's/entertainers could take a leaf from his book. A true legend in Australian music.

How is it that he doesn't have his own page on Drummerworld?
