I'll never forget seeing the Crowdies blast the headline act (INXS) off the stage at a benefit concert in 1993...people were actually going home during INXS's set. Their warmth and humour as a live act could only be matched by U2.

I have a show with a mate on community radio and last night we played a tribute to Hessy...

Don't Dream It's Over
Distant Sun
Four Seasons in One Day

This song by the Floyd has been in my head since Hessy's passing.

"Remember when you were young, you shone like the sun.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Now there's a look in your eyes, like black holes in the sky.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
You were caught on the crossfire of childhood and stardom, blown on the steel breeze.
Come on you target for faraway laughter, come on you stranger,you legend, you martyr,
and shine!

You reached for the secret too soon, you cried for the moon.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Threatened by shadows at night, and exposed in the light.
Shine on you crazy diamond.
Well you wore out your welcome with random precision, rode on the steel breeze.
Come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner,
and shine."
