News came through today announcing the passing of Ted Mulry, singer/bassplayer in the Ted Mulry Gang. This band existed in Australia in the 70's (and 80's?). I have to admit I don't know much about Ted or his music but I thought I'd mention it. He had been battling cancer for some time now. It's a particularly dark week for Australian music with the passing also of Graham 'Shirly' Straughn, the lead singer from popular band Skyhooks.
