The Age/Music Victoria Hall Of Fame Inductees
Daddy Cool originally formed in Melbourne in 1970 with Wayne Duncan, Gary Young, Ross Wilson and Ross Hannaford, all four of whom still perform in other bands regularly. Daddy Cool’s debut single “Eagle Rock” was released in May 1971 and shot straight to number one on the Australian singles chart. It recently topped a Max TV poll of the greatest Australian songs of all time. Their 1971 LP“Daddy Who? Daddy Cool!” also reached number one, becoming the first Australian rock album to sell more than 100,000 copies.
Daddy Cool appears on the Face The Music 2014 program.
