Hi Graeham, I joined the MSO on double bass in 1975 and one of my first 'sessions' was the orchestral backing for LRB's 'Diamantina Cocktail' album... at Armstrongs. I was bedazzled by the harmony work I heard in my cans that day and have been an LRB fan ever since. LRB is one of those bands where the songwriting/singing/ harmonies/arrangements reach the highest level possible... when everything clicks. Cheers
Hey Graeham, I love your music, but that strongest word isn't strong enough. I wish you and I could meet each other, but I'm guessing you're still in Australia. 'We Two' is a wonderful song with a fantastic performance from John Farnham. Your pen is that of a master - one great song after another.
Hi Graeham, I just watched Glenn perform here today and thought I would like to say thank you for all the great songs that you wrote during your LRB days. I am 45 and grew up listening to your songs. I have been a muso for 35 years and truly appreciate your craftsmanship. The legalities of you guys not being able to use your own name when you wrote and made famous the songs that the current users of the name are destroying is so wrong. Whatever Judge granted Housden the rights to keep the name when he doesn't even perform is a clown. Thank you again from a very happy listener. Kind Regards
Hi Graeham, Love your writing/arranging/harmony since buying Sleeper Catcher when it came out, immediately noticing your name on the songwriting credits. Hope to see you perform either solo or in band.
Just wanted you to know that I went to see most recent incarnation of LRB the other night....should have done my research BEFORE the concert and did not know about what happened to you & other founders until after when I looked up info on current lineup. That led me to your song and here and just want to say I appreciate you....for standing up and speaking out....brave. I was very saddened to hear about what happened to you....just plain wrong, especially if it keeps you from getting good gigs here in the States.... Don't know if it helps, but I have posted my thoughts on this on facebook and challenged people to think about the topic too....Wish you all the best.
Hello Graeham, Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much I enjoy your music. Not sure how it is possible that LRB still performs without you, Glenn and Beeb - - - Very happy to have found your site and wanted to connect since I count you as a big influence in my music. Peace and love!
I have been a fan of your music for a long time and Little River Band was the best band ever. I'm sorry to say that I outgrew LRB but, I just re-discovered my favorite group and have to say I was blown away by "As Long As I'm Alive". You have written some great songs but, this song says it better than any other song ever could. It feels as though you reached into my thoughts and pulled them out. As long as I'm alive your music will never be forgotten. You are a very rare songwriter. So, thank you from a 53 year old fan.
I have been a fan of yours for a long time and hope the music never ends
Graeham, I want to thank you for the years of great harmony. I believe that you, Beeb and Glenn should do whatever you can to make a wrong right. I saw the "imposters" some years ago here in Orlando. It was not what I grew up with! Press on Mate, Good on ya!
Graeham, I so love and admire your work. Your sense of harmonics is a major inspiration here to say the least. LRB's version of REMINISCING is the "end-all-be-all". The song is a masterpiece from every angle and everyone knows it....PERIOD. Thanks so much for the road you've paved for those of us that follow in your stepsPost Message
