Long before Boy George, Mylie Cyrus and Lady Gaga there was Skyhooks. Formed in Melbourne in '73 the lead singer was Graeme "Shirley" Strachan. Red Symons also sang, played base, behaved outrageously, wore lots of make up, and stuck out his tongue, a lot! Hits included Horror Movie, Living in the '70's, Ego is not a dirty word, Women in Uniform, All my friends are getting married. Skyhooks disbanded in 1980. Shirley Strachan was tragically killed in a helicopter crash in 2001 at age 49.
