This band's name refers to Australian Aborigines sleeping in holes. This band had 13 gold albums and recorded 21 Billboard Top 40 hits, seven of which went gold, and three U.S. number one songs. From 1969-1974, nobody had more Top 10 hits, moved more records, or sold more concert tickets. This band enjoyed major success covering songs by other artists such as Randy Newman, Laura Nyro, Hoyt Axton, and Elton John and Bernie Taupin, as well as a hit from a musical. As recently as 2008 they were still performing 85 concerts a year. They performed this past weekend at the Moondog Coronation Ball in Cleveland.

The origins of this band moved up to a fusion of hard rock and a classical symphonic sound, and a new name, with the “new” band covering a song popularized by the original group. And as the new incarnation gained popularity, it cut the strings from it's formula and picked up a more mainstream pop sound. The band's first Dick Clark TV appearance featured a Chuck Berry classic. The group had 20 US top 40 Billboard hits, and sold more than 100 million albums, but never had a number 1 hit. The creative force behind this band later teamed up with Tom Petty, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Ray Orbison.

This “gangster” broke into the AOR playlists while part of a trio. Actually, the original four-person band was opening for Cream in Detroit when a member quit, so they played as a threesome, and giving them a new distinctive sound they liked. They cut a couple of moderately successful albums, and opened for The Who during their 1970 UK tour. He walked away from the band a couple of albums later and barnstormed into a solo careers before joining – and transforming – a well-known super-group and taking them into life in the fast lane. He checked out of the aforementioned supergroup to cut a few more solo LPs, as well as touring with Ringo Starr. As a producer, he produced albums for Dan Fogelberg and Ringo Starr, and backed up songs by Don Henley, Steve Winwood, and Richard Marx, and performed with Kenney Chesney during that country artist's 2007 tour. He presented his 1959 Gibson Les Paul Sunburst to Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page; drew an assignment as a bit part actor on a sitcom; and has been known to put coded messages in his music. He is a college dropout, but his would-be alma mater gave him an honorary degree. His wife is the sister of a “Bond Girl” movie star who is married to a Rock Star. His next gig is March 15, 2009, in the Fargodome.
