One of Australia's most enduring rockers died this morning from a massive heart attack.
Thorpey had many hits over the years, and has been on the pub curcuit since the 1960s. He and his band, The Aztecs, had the reputation of being the loudest band in the country, and he will be sadly missed.
His hits include 'Poison Ivy', 'Over The Rainbow', 'It's Almost Summer', and my personal favourite, 'Most People I Know Think That I'm Crazy'.
Billy was 60.
