Witness the band rip into Don Gardener’s funky late-’60s howler My Baby Likes to Boogaloo – explosive, throat-tearing good times. “I don’t know if I’d wantx to be doing three shows a day, singing like that,” Diesel laughs, “but I’d probably build a muscle like James Brown, after a while."

James Reyne - Kentucky Rain     Rock, Blues, Country, Soul 08/03/2010
James Reyne has a long and successful career as a solo artist and as frontman for Australian Crawl.
The main aim was to try and make the songs my own, always aware of the stupidity of trying to imitate Elvis himself and the folly of even pretending to contend the brilliance of the originals.
