????? Keays and Morris

Post by Scrappy on Wed Aug 15, 2012 2:15 pm

It used to be Cotton, Keays and Morris , or known as CKm
Sadly my favorite Australian singer, Daryl Cotton passed away recently
As my tribute to Daryl Im doing this 'way out' thread
Who can replace the great man in the CKm band ?

Im going to audition a few guys who might be good choices to join Jim Keays and Russell Morris
Im hoping help is on its way for Jimmy and Rus

I will be reminiscing with a few choices
Not quite a needle in the haystack but one of my first choices :

Glenn Sharrock
Heres a real groover who started in the 60s
Checkmates,Twilights, Axiom, Little River Band are a few of his bands in the 60s/70s
I reckon Glenn did his best work with The Twilights
Glenn would be a cool change

WHO else would be a good choice ?

You lost me at that moment. scrappy Laughing

Probably the best choice, however.

Maybe Jon English as a consideration also.

Words are not enough to describe my fav Jon English hit Hollywood Seven
In the 80s I took a Jon English tape overseas with me
I recall playing Jons tape to a few Mediterraneans
One of them begged me for the tape as they loved the song Turn The Page
I returned years later, he still had the tape

Jon would be a good choice to replace Daryl
Some People would say English, Keays, Morris has a real beep beep, beep beep yeah ring about it

I think Ronnie left Cotton and Morris he wont travel anymore because of wife "who is a writer" and his kids,and owns a buisiness in Tassie.Burns married Maggie Stewart – a dancer he met on Dig We Must – in 1970, they had a daughter Lauren Burns on 8 June 1974 and a son Michael seven years later. Lauren is a Taekwondo competitor and won a gold medal at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.

The Burns live in Tasmania – he tours on the motivational speaking circuit. In 1998, the couple founded Appin Hall Children’s Foundation, a refuge for orphans of war and children with chronic illness.

Ronnie and Maggie appear on the cover of the 2012/13 Burnie White and Yellow Pages under the theme 'A Helping Hand, The Aussie Way'. The pair are photographed at Appin Hall and were selected for their work with children through the establishment of Appin Hall Children's Foundation.

Rick Springfield

And why not
Rick Played with Zoot 1969-1971 along side Daryl Cotton
Thanks to Rick I got hooked on an American soap , General Hospital
Used to tape the episodes with my Beta VCR and watch the episodes after work !

In November 2011 Zoot did a reunion concert
Its was called the Rick Springfield and Friends cruise
Rick Springfield , Daryl Cotton, Beeb Birtles and Rick Brewer reunited for what appears the last time

Brian Cadd yes , he has been a versatile contributor in the music industry
Brilliant in those great bands the Groop and Axiom
For some reason Brian Cadd was Brian Caine when playing with The Group
Im the proud owner of a The Group LP, a real treasure, Brian was clean shaven in those 'daze'
The tracks on this album are
Side 1
Mad Over You
Downtown Woman
Woman Your Breaking me
The Gun And Flower Pot Trick
Im Satisfied
Side 2
Little Man
Here She Comes
Empty Words
The Best Of Africa
Ham And Eggs

Woman Your Breaking Me is a classic
Little Man is a lesser known hit, but a classic in my ears

Doug Parkinson
No !
I cant focus on this singer as a replacement
Anyone who looks like Merv Hughes with an afro is not a candidate !

I reckon I was the only person I know that was a Doug Parkinson fan
Doug was something different , and I really enjoyed watching him
His rendition of Dear Prudence won me in the late 60s
Doug has a very peculiar raspy soul voice , but nah, not Parkinson, Keays, Morris

Would be the logical favorite Wink


Smiley was one of the all time greatest Australian hit records
The bloke who wrote the song was a young talent as well

Back in the 1960s, my brother played in a band, and in those days the musicians were a very tight group of people. Every now and then Jim Keays used to come to our place and jam, with my brother's band.

Being the sportsman of the family, I would listen to the music whilst spending hours bowling in the back yard.

Jim Keays nicknamed me Richie Benaud .... even though I was bowling pace at the time Smile

Sadly the great Jim Keays has recently passed away

There I was waiting for a couple of mates to roll up for a meeting
They were both late , so I reclined the car seat, wound down the windows played a Masters Apprentice CD full blast
The mates were both very late, so I listed to the CD twice
Had the tape on later in the day, when the mate said how ill Jim was
The next day Jim passed away

What a magnificent front man for arguably South Australia's greatest band
