the life & rhymes of dad

For those of you that didn’t already know


It’s his biography

He, and his great mate Gavin Miller, have been working on it for a long time

And even though I already know the story


It’s fucking awesome

I’m not just saying that ’cause Dad reads my blog

It really is a brilliant read

And I’m so proud of how it’s turned out

Today – the first copy arrived

And we were all so excited

But no one, and I mean NO FUCKING ONE

Was more excited than Dad

He woke up 2 hours early

Got straight in the car

And wanted to leave

The publishers had sent his copy to Goulburn, where we’re playing tonight

And I thought my kids could do my head in on car trips with their, “….are we THERE yet?” bullshit

But Dad took the fucking CAKE today I tell ya

“Are we THERE yet?”

“Are we there YET?”


And when we finally did arrive, he didn’t even wait for the car to come to a complete stop at the motel

He got out

He ran straight into recception

And there it was!

Like a kid at Christmas

He’s lucky he didn’t lose a finger he was in such a hurry to rip into it

I know the photos are crap & video would have been better

But it was a really cool moment

So much work has gone into this book

Into telling Dad’s story

And an amazing story it is

But just in case he forgot….he sat down & read it again

You can CLICK ON THIS LINK if you want to order a copy

You’ll love it

And not just because he says nice things about me

OK, maybe a little bit ’cause of that!
