Probably best remembered for the flute on the oz classic "down Under".
Men at work also had a few other big hits including the infectious "who can it be now" "overkill" and "Be good Johnny".

No, it's some sort of yeast extract.

The Aussies find it quite tasty.

The Brits do as well.  it's fairly nasty smelling, I didn't even dare try it when the company I worked for had British visitors leave a jar of it behind.

Carlos' daughter sent us a jar of Vegemite when they went to Australia several years ago. We tried it but didn't really like it. It was (dare I say) very yeasty tasting. I guess it is an acquired taste. 


It is sad about Greg Ham. I like Men At Work.

He's the second Men At Work member to go.  One of them committed suicide in the nineties but I don't remember which.

I still hate the Men at Work song 'Be Good Johnny', but I love to hate it.

Cargo was the best MAW album.  I loved 'It's A Mistake' and 'Overkill'

R.I.P. to Greg Ham :(

All in all, over the years, there have been 24 members of this band.  :o

With the numbers that big it could well be that somebody else passed away too.  :-\\

Actually, I was thinking of Stuart Adamson of Big Country who hanged himself when he was drunk in Hawaii back in 2001.
