A chat with Gary Burrows, Singer/Song Writer, Musician
“GARY BURROWS has played as a drummer singer songwriter since the mid sixties in bands that have left lasting impressions on audiences all around Australia. In later years Gary played with THE MOONDOGS - another band that went on to be regarded as one of the best rock and roll acts of the time. After some personal tragedies in 2000 part of Gary's recovery process was to immerse himself in his songwriting and as a consequence THE RUSTLERS were formed. In this band Gary came out from behind his drums to play guitar and sing his own compositions.” www.moshtix.com.au
Some of the songs from Gary’s bands include some top ten chart successes; "One Little Kiss" Brass Carnival - charted #8, "Who Was That" The Boys - charted #8, and a solo track in aid of footballer "Peter Motley" - charted #3.
Gary was inducted into the South Australian Country Music Hall of Fame not only for his songwriting but also for his contribution to the music industry in general over the last 40 years and two and a half decades with APRA (The Australasian Performing Right Society).
The main topic we talked about in this "Quick Chat" season, is putting on a show or an event and all the creative and practicalities around that. There is also many stories, laughs and even a joke!
