Songwriter, singer, guitarist and guitar maker, Don Morrison, has shared the stage with many of the biggest names in Australian music, like Midnight Oil, Hunters and Collectors, Billy Thorpe, Joe Camilleri, Australian Crawl, Men At Work, Stephen Cummings, Ross Wilson and a hundred more in more than thirty years in music game.
He has worked with Bo Diddly, Joe Cocker, Rodriguez and even Billy Ray Cyrus. He was brave enough to stand next to Shakin’ Stephens in a urinal and nearly killed by Willie Nelson in Austin, Texas.
He’s done gigs from Perth to Penrith, from Sydney to San Antonio and released a dozen CDs of original songs under his own name and that of his many bands such as The Bodgies, Ghetto Blasters, The Elmores, The Lonely Cosmonauts, Prawnhead and now with his two sons, Eddie and Jake, along with long time ally Andy Przygonski, in Don Morrison’s Raging Thirst. He’s written all about it in a rollicking autobiography “This Could Be Big”.
He might not be as young and pretty as he once was but he’s not done yet. Dubbed the Larrikin Troubadour Laureate of Adelaide, Don Morrison is playing, singing and writing songs better than ever.
