    Kylie Minogue, international hit singles,
    all have in common?
    They all credit Lenny Kravitz with sexing them up and making them an adult artist.

    If I went to Australia I'd want to be the first person to make Ayers Rock, and roll.

    Maybe I should declare a conflict of interest with my vote.
    Of all the bands here, I only sang a Men at Work song in a band,
    "Ghosts Appear and Fade Away",
    unless singing "Tie me kangoroo down, Jack", as a child counts.
    Yep Lenny did the job......

    All good comments - with the Easybeats you may be surprised to know that the two guitars/ songwriters are the producers (Harry Vanda and George Young) and one of them the older brother of the two guitarists from AC/DC (Angus and Malcolm Young) - a bit spinal tap hey.............

    The ten I chose are a selection of the most popular aussie rock bands (here in Oz), plus Captain Matchbox added for colour- they are popular and still perform here but would not make a general top 10. The top 20 listed is an "official" Aussie based listing thou.

    Just to finish the Easybeats theme - here is their biggest Aussie (non AC/DC hit) - Evie written by Harry Vanda and George Young and sung by the Easybeats lead singer Stevie Wright.
