One of the first bands I ever met, here at a record shop signing. I went with my cousin Zmaroula (Moo) and her friend Helen.
Top pic from left to right: Paul Hewson (RIP), Marc Hunter (RIP), Todd Hunter, and below: Kerry Jacobson.
They were a real rock band in the sex, drugs and rock and roll tradition, bluesy and with one of the greatest front men ever – Marc Hunter. If you've never heard of them, look up "Sunshine" an early song. Later they got more pop-y.
They were adopted as Australian, but were really from New Zealand.
