Post 725 - Mental As Anything - Silent Night - Wooden Heart

Mental As Anything doing a Live, acoustic and busking set on “Good Afternoon Australia”, Dec 21 1984. Mental As Anything, now consisting of Greedy Smith (vocals/keyboards), Martin Cilia (guitars), Jacob Cook (drums), Craig Gordon (vocals/guitars) and Peter Gray (vocals/bass), played a special 40th anniversary show at Surfersaurus in Sydney, during October 2018. Smith was by this point the only original member of Mental As Anything to still be playing with the group. Sadly "Greedy" Smith died of a heart attack on 2 December 2019, in Sydney. Smith's final show with the band -- and the band's last show to date -- took place on 23 November in Werrington, New South Wales.
UPDATE - Unfortunately this is the only Christmas post for this year, I have had a few technical issues   with computers more than I would like to mention but fingers crossed the Blog will be up and running full steam in 20/20. Wishing you all a fantastic Christmas and a great New Year. Ozzie. Flac

Glad to see you up and posting again brother, although it's so terribly sad that it's a post about the death of Greedy.
I remember interviewing him back in my radio days, and he was a thoroughly entertaining, lovely bloke.
A great loss to the Australian music scene.
