Australian singer, actor and television personality Darryl Cotton passed away at 62 on July 27. As I researched his career, I was amazed at the depth and connections he had. He played with Rick Springfield, was involved with a group that morphed into the Little River Band, song-wrote for Donny and Marie Osmond, Olivia Newton-John, Shaun Cassidy, The New Seekers and Engelbert Humperdink.
Enjoy his 1980 hit “Same Old Girl”.

He was a fantastic performer and a genuinely nice guy. When he toured with Russell Morris and Ronnie Burns I met him after the concert.. He just sat round talking and joking with us and we had a ball with him. Great guy. I did a tribute for him after he died as I was so sad. If you feel like having a look you can see it here .. http://memorieslivonne.com.au/2013/01/09/aussie-rock-roll-heaven/
I will when I’m on my laptop later.
