Years after starting his first high school band "The Pink Finks", Ross Wilson is still delivering his trademark knock-out live performances with his all star touring band the Urban Legends. Of a career that has now spanned 5 decades at the pinnacle of the Australian Rock and Roll business, 'I've had a hell of a time' says Wilson who can't make a comeback because he's never been away.
Twice inducted in to the ARIA Hall of Fame, Ross Wilson remains one of this country's most respected artists. From Daddy Cool to Mondo Rock, as a solo artist, or as songwriter of A-grade classics such as Eagle Rock and A Touch of Paradise, or producer of the legendary Skyhooks, Jo Jo Zep, The Johnnys and The Screaming Jets, Ross' involvement with success has continued unabated.
Inspired by the biggest concert of his solo career at the Palais Theatre in St Kilda. Dubbed '5 Decades of Cool', Wilson has now announced a national tour based around his 45 year road trip of life, titled 'Hell of A Time'. Expect to hear all the classic Daddy Cool staples, "Eagle Rock", Hi Honey Ho", Come Back Again", "Bom Bom" and the radio banned "Baby let Me Bang Your Box". Mondo Rock hits such as "Cool World", "State of The Heart', "Chemistry", "No Time", and "Come said The Boy" come to life when Ross Wilson and the Urban legends (Eric 'Mondo Rock' McCusker - Guitar & Vocals, John MeAlI - Piano & Vocals, Chris Paraha - Bass & vocals and Haydn Meggitt - Drums & Vocals) perform with second-to-none delivery.
Ross Wilson solo classics "living in the land of Oz" and the 1989 hit "Bed of Nails" recently revived as a TV theme are included along with hit's Ross has written for other singers, including 'A Touch Of Paradise' recorded by John Farnham. A selection of more recent solo outings round out the show including the tour theme 'Hell Of A Time" due for release in 2010 on Ross' forthcoming Nashville recorded CD.
