Chris and I met when we were about 14 during detention at Oxley High School and became close friends which later developed into what I always thought was an extremely strong artistic partnership,

2/2  I couldn't have hoped for a better singer. My deepest condolences to his wife Elisabet, his sisters Margaret, Carol and Maureen and the rest of his family and loved ones. 

Another legend down. Huge Loss For Australian Music Industry.    This one a co-creator of punk music. RIP Chris Bailey!!!
