Along his journey he has been inducted into the prestigious ARIA Hall of Fame, secured three ARIA Awards, 24 Golden Guitars, MO Awards, APRA Awards, Platinum and Gold albums and over 4 million album sales to name just some of the recognition he has earned.
It all started when he penned that classic Old Man Emu back in 1970. From this ‘silly’ song (as he often refers to it) that went to #1 for five weeks, he has continued to create hits including True Blue, Cootamundra Wattle, Rip Rip Woodchip, Raining On The Rock, Winter Green, Salisbury Street, Galleries Of Pink Galahs and Hawkesbury River Lovin’ to name but a few of the 400+ songs written by the multi-award winning songwriter.
