I met him many times. He did a few Hobart races on his own boat and a few of us rented a house he owned on the Gold coast and he used to score off us when he was in town. He died in one of Grant Kenny's helocopters the day before 911. He was a great bloke who did not care for, or give a fuck about, being famous.Skyhooks were about Shirl and his Shane Warne like appeal to the larrikin masses and the girls.
The camp stuff was more than a little baffling to me, but then there was a bit of it around. Considering how homophobic the place was, I don't know how it worked at all.
