Song Of The Day – Remembering Greg Ham


Yamaha YAS-25 Alto Saxophone

 

For those of you who know my blog, I do tributes to recently departed musicians.  As of this posting, I will be integrating these tributes into the Song Of The Day format that I have been using.  This should reduce some of my spamming in your in-boxes.

As most of you now know, one of the original members of Men At Work, Greg Ham, passed away on April 19.  Exceptionally talented, he played saxophone, flute, organ, synthesizer and piano.  He also contributed with his songwriting skills to the success of 80’s favorite, Men At Work.  One of their most enduring songs is “Who Can It Be Now“, which featured Greg Ham on saxophone.

“Who Can It Be Now”

About John

I enjoy travel, sports, music and anything else that jumps up at me for the moment, which is why I blog. There will be lots of music and travel posts and a smattering of sports and humour. I enjoy promoting Canada and am unabashedly a proud Canuck.

  1. You might have not noticed, but I don’t know a lot about music. I do recognize this song though. Catchy. 😉

  2. Great tune, good band. Fortunately, the song still gets airplay, so Greg will be remembered by his music, if not by name.

  3. Hi,
    A fantastic band and he will definitely be missed. But I will always remember him with Men at Work for their song: “The Land Downunder” still love it even though they were sued over a bit of the tune, it will stay a favourite with a lot of Aussies.

I Would Love To Hear From You
