Renee Geyer gone


Recommended Posts

I danced with this girl for some time at a nightclub up the road from Manly in 1973. She was drop dead gorgeous and we danced while SHERBET (before they found fame ) played on stage. I got the shock of my life when she was invited up on stage to sing. Oh my, what a bluesy voice. Never did ask her home ,damn !!.

Great career in the end .

Actually ,after reminiscing over that period of my life and hearing of her death ,and the same age as me ,one's own mortality comes into focus. The exit sign is flashing and becoming clearer. She went on to become one of Australia's finest exponents of jazz, blues and R&B. Rest in peace Renee.

Age catching up with us as we see the finishing post for that great mob of entertainers. Also losing an Australian Icon during the year , that i'm sure was very popular in Nz as well in Judith Durham from the Seekers. 

2 harness racing greats passed on as well in Roy Purdon and Jim Dalgety during the past year. seems like yesterday they were training winners....
