Show Details

Skyhooks helped change the face of rock n roll in the 1970s with #1 and Top 10 singles to their credit, as well as two of the country’s biggest selling albums, Living inthe 70s and Ego is Not A Dirty Word. Both produced by Ross Wilson and receivedincredible reviews.

Skyhooks have been described as ‘giving the Australian music industry the enema itneeded’ when they smashed onto the scene in their colourful cos-tumes, wearingmake-up well before other bands tried it. Living in the 70s was their debut album, Egois Not A Dirty Word released a year later and it wasn’t long before the five members ofthe bands were celebrities–Shirley, the enigmatic curly-haired lead-singer, guitarist Red Symons, guitarist Bob Starkie, bassist and songwriter Greg Macainsh and drummer Fred Strauks. They released killer singles such as Horror Movie, Ego (Is NotA Dirty Word), Women In Uniform, and Jukebox in Siberia, to name a few, and are one of the few bands who have been permanently on rotation on radio stations around the country for decades. Skyhooks were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame and ceased touring together after the death of lead singer Shirley in 2001.
