I'm gonna suggest all those acts made it at home first Pol. I can't think of one that's been listed there that made it outside of Oz before coming home. I'm assuming the OP is talking about people like Jimi Hendrix etc that actually shot to fame in the UK before returning home?

While we're at it....how the hell did Powderfinger not get more recognition on the international stage? Great band....it's a shame for both them as a band and listeners in other countries who have now missed out.
