“I think Grant has always been on this stage had wanted to play,” said band member Chris Matthews when he made the Classic Record Award presented was for their album “Stunt Clown” from 1987. Then let he some of the asse out on stage, and then a song to grasp.
“It was like he was back among us. It was a magical moment for me,” says Headless Chickens-( Rupert E Taylor on Radio New Zealand. “I got his asse in my face and it ended up on my clothes.”
