This makes me so sad.

If forced to nominate my favourite genres I’d probably go

1. Classic Rock
2. Australian pub rock
3. 90s alternative (grunge, Brit pop etc)
4. Hard rock

Then a fairly eclectic mix.

But since I was very little I loved the Seekers, largely because Judith Durham had simply the most angelic heavenly voice I’ve ever heard.

I still get teary listening to her and Bruce Woodley sing I Am Australian together.

This sucks

wow, Three Aussie icons of previous generations gone within a week of each other.
Sad times especially for those of their generation.
The three of them mostly before our time but every time I heard Olivia Newton-John talk it felt like she reminded me of my aunties.
She one of those people that lived overseas but still sounded like she lived next door.
R.I.P Archie Roach, Judith Durham and Olivia Newton-John

So sad.

Judith & The Seekers were of my Mum & Dad's generation but I always liked their songs.

Then when they re-formed in the 90s, I discovered a new appreciation for them and have loved watching their performances.

Vale Judith. The carnival may be over, but your songs will live on forever.

It's a horrible coincidence but just realised Olivia's final musical performance may have been singing Judith & The Seekers' song 'I Am Australian'.

I had a best of Seekers at a very early age.
Loved Durhams vocals.

I'm a jazzer and a progger but love any genre really.
