Colin Hay, Peaks & Valleys
COLIN HAY In 1967, Colin Hay was 14 years old, traveling by ship through the Suez Canal from Scotland to Australia. He played some acoustic guitar, sang a song, and told some stories. He did that then, and he does that now. This is the thread that runs through all his work for the last 25 years--from the multi-platinum award-winning Men At Work, to the beloved solo acoustic release Going Somewhere, and the recently released CD Man@Work, on Compass Records. Transporting when he sings, hilarious when he talks, he expresses what we all share - the peaks and valleys of our lives. In 1979, the nucleus of Men At Work formed. No one predicted that this Australian rock band would sell many millions of albums and win the 1982 Grammy Award for Best New Artist. From that album --Business As Usual, Who Can It Be Now topped the charts in Australia, Europe, Canada, Japan, South and Central America, and the USA. The single Down Under hit #1 in dozens of countries, and has become one of the most iconographic Australian pop songs of all time. This single and its album stayed at #1 on the American charts for 16 weeks until they were finally dethroned by Michael Jackson`s Thriller.
