NEW “ROCK TIL YA DIE” ALBUM REVIEW & INTERVIEW WITH CLIFFORD HOAD
If you follow the music career of Hoad brothers, you certainly know that a lot of things have happened in last couple of years. After the demise of The Rich & Famous band (=Kings of the Sun under new moniker, which allowed the Hoads to further explore their writing skills beyond confines of hard rock genre) and a couple of years on hiatus, original founder & band’s drummer Cliff Hoad decided to resurrect the Kings. This time however, without his younger brother Jeff, former singer and guitarist of the group, who is not interested anymore and definitely left behind his music career.
Clifford Hoad founded his band in late 1983 after putting a band together & bringing his younger brother Jeff Hoad down to Sydney from Gold Coast to take the role as the singer. The band then included Bob Spencer on guitar, Marlon Holden on bass & Clifford Hoad on drums. Cliff had met Bob Spencer ex-Skyhooks/Finch in Brisbane during the making of his Drouyn drum kit! The band was first called The Young Lions and after some member changes Cliff finally renamed his band to KINGS OF THE SUN, after seeing the movie KINGS OF THE SUN with Yul Brynner on daytime television one day in Sydney's Tamarama where the band resided.
