frown Slim Dusty

Just heard from my sister that Slim Dusty passed away this morning.
Can anyone confirm this?

If so, my condolences to the Kirkpatrick family.

Re: Slim Dusty

It was on the news.

Can't say I liked his music too much but a sad loss none the less.

Slim Dusty dies
September 19, 2003

Legendary country music entertainer Slim Dusty has died.

Dusty passed away at his home at 9.46am today after a protracted battle with cancer, EMI marketing manager Chris O'Hearne said.

Born David Gordon Kirkpatrick at Kempsey, on the NSW mid-north coast, in 1927, he wrote his first song The Way the Cowboy Dies at the age of 10.

A year later he changed his name to Slim Dusty and later went on to record a string of hits including The Pub With No Beer, the biggest selling record by an Australian.

He was the first Australian to receive a Gold Record, the first to have an international record hit, and the first singer in the world to have his voice beamed to earth from space.

In June this year, Dusty was recording his 106th album and at the time his management denied he was battling cancer.

Dusty had his left kidney removed after a cancerous tumour was detected in November 2001 and received continuous treatment.

His wife Joy, son David and daughter Anne were at his bedside when the 76-year-old singer passed away at his home in Sydney, Mr O'Hearne said.

Re: Slim Dusty

His contribution to the Country Music Scene will sorely be missed.

My condolences to the Kirkpatrick family.

My condolences to the family. Can't wait till this year is over so all these deaths stop :(

Truly the deepest kiss one can feel, and the one most sought after, is the one you will not survive....

Re: Slim Dusty

(sung to the tune of THE PUB WITH NO BEER)

It's lonesome away from your FREDDIE at sea
When your flying along in a lone S-2G
The cat hurt my back bone,
my arse & my neck.
There'll be no relief 'til we're back on the deck.

Well we're flying around punching holes in the blue,
Trying to hold back a gut-wrenching spew.
We get radar contact,
And then there's a MAD.
And things go from worse to just too f**king bad.

We put in a pattern but can't get a fix,
With 'maybe' on 4, and 'lost contact' on 6.
I've just had a chunder,
I'm too crook to speak.
But I'd feel so much better if my bag didn't leak!

We fly through the CASEX with open bomb doors,
Knowing we have only Mark 44s.
Oh what I could do
With a DUSTBIN or two.
I'd sort out that GOBLIN & it's whole f**king crew!

If the TACCO had not gone for "..just one more MAD",
Things would probably not have turned out this bad.
I look at my watch,
Just one hour has pass.
A six hour sortie on a four hour arse.

And it's no fun away from your HOMEPLATE at all,
When the poopy-suit peehole is too god-damn small!
There's nothing so lonesome.
Shocking or cruel,
When your busting to go & can't find your tool!

Well finding your ship in rain-squalls is hard,
And you know when you trap, your back will be jarred.
But worse than your sore back,
Your arse & your neck,
Is to Larry Mills call "WAVE OFF - FOUL DECK!"

Vale Dusty!
