Subject: Billy Thorpe

Written By: Snoopygirl on 02/28/07 at 3:09 pm

I don't know if many of you know this Australian rocker, but I thought I would post it and let you know that he passed away today from a heart attack at 60.
I wasn't familiar with most of his songs, but I was a big fan of his song from the late 70's "Children of the Sun".

RIP :(

I loved Billy's music.  Children of the Sun was his only US hit (peaking at #41 on Billboard).

He broke the Canadian Top 40 twice, once in 64 with "Over the Rainbow" and again in 1981 with "In My Room". 
The only album of his I own is "East of Eden's Gate" and I love it!
