  2. Deepest heartfelt condolences to Felicity, Lachie, Georgia and all who loved Graeme. So sad that the end has come for my dear friend and co-conspirator in music for almost 50 years. So many fond memories and I will miss our annual Fish Pie get together every Good Friday. I will miss your talent, your laughter and your generosity. Way too early but you fought hard and leave an enormous legacy but also a huge hole in our hearts.

  6. My sincere condolences to Graeme’s family and friends.
    My memories of Graeme linger around the times of him playing in the bands ‘Once’ and ‘The Parrots’ at the Creswick Pub and the Golden City, his participation in ‘Alice’ and ‘For Love of Albert’ (including his singing role as the Telegram boy) and the building of his Redwood recording studio.
    I will remember him as a crucial part of the richness and creativity of the time.
