Default RIP Steve Prestwich

Former Cold Chisel drummer, Steve Prestwich, passed away a couple of days ago after he was diagnosed with a brain tumour two weeks ago.

Some Aussie drummers aren't well-known in other countries but Steve was a fine player. When he started out he was a pretty straightforward rocker with good feel and groove but as time went on his playing became more sophisticated.

Here's a few of my Chisel favourites.

One Long Day: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eP2pgx6iMi4

Breakfast at Sweethearts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=daKpauTL8oA

Star Hotel (about the riots when an iconic venue closed): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrDSh7WWdZs

He will be missed.
