    Men At Work musician Greg Ham died


    Greg Ham, a musician with the iconic Australian band Men at Work, was found dead in his Melbourne home on Thursday, Australian reports said.

    Victoria state police confirmed that the deceased was the 58-year-old resident of the house but did not identify him by name, in keeping with local practice. Ham was 58 and neighbors said he was the lone occupant of the house.

    Two concerned friends who had not heard from Ham in some time found the body after going to check on him, police said, declining to release any details on how Ham died or if the circumstances were suspicious.

    Det. Senior Sergeant Shane O'Connell said of the death, "There are a number of unexplained aspects to it which has caused our attendance here today, and we're assisting the local detectives to determine what has occurred." Reports say Ham was home alone.

    The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

    As sad as this is, I'm happy to see that this has been posted.
    I thought most people here wouldn't even know who he was.

    He was clearly depressed as a result of the legal battle and losing his home, and more important to him, his reputation.

    The description under this video of the riff comparison is..... interesting.
