I can’t believe it two Aussie singing legends gone in two days Judith and Olivia . Yes a Shadows connection as she was engaged to Bruce Welch, her best friend Pat Carroll is married to John Farrer who wrote the songs to Grease and was in a band with Hank and Bruce. She was also engaged to a bloke in Australia called Ian Turpie who was a performer who passed away a few years ago Matt
A 1984 MIJ "62" RI Strat, an uprated 2020 Squier CV50 , an Epiphone EJ200 acoustic , a Q2 with Charlies EFTP ,an 8i8 Focusrite Scarlett ( as amp and interface, Mixcraft Pro Studio as DAW ) , a (Joyo ) Actone . I also have a CS400, a DS-2, and an Ernie Ball Pedal ( volume ).
A beautiful, brave lady who will remain very much in the hearts of many as “Sandy”, she always seemed to have that natural girl next door appeal. Reading about her it’s clear what an amazing and positive person she was, someone it seems who really did bring “love and light” to the people in her life.
Olivia was 29 when she made grease, playing an 18 year old college girl, that tells you something about her, such a terrible loss after beating cancer twice in her life then to get it a third time which took her life, Such a sad loss for someone that had so much courage.
