Gold Mine - Music Video

I wrote this song about 1972 and recorded it with Craig Pilkington in Melbourne about 1997. Last year Sharon, my second wife, and I travelled around Australia in a caravan after we were married. My son Fraser put the video clips together in 2019. I have always enjoyed playing and singing the song which is a tribute to Australian singer songwriters, artists and writers. It’s tough to be successful.

Being financially successful as an artist is a bit like gold mining. It is hard to have a win and it is easy to lose. Australia is a great subject for artists. I admire those people who were successful and also those who had a crack at it. If you had not already guessed, I have not been a financially successful artist! Hope you enjoy the video anyway.
