Normie Rowe Records New Don Walker Song

Australian rock and roll star Normie Rowe will be the voice of a new Don Walker song titled 'Poor Boy'.

"It is a series of songs Don gave me the demos for," Normie tells Undercover News.

Walker, the legendary songwriter and keyboard player from Cold Chisel, has written for numerous artists over the years including country music star Slim Dusty.

"He is a hell of a writer," says Normie. "He has a handle on Australian urban subjects and their delivery".

Normie will release the song on his next album in 2007.

He is also adding another unreleased Walker song 'Long Black Limousine' into his live set.

Meanwhile, Rowe has just released a newly recorded version of his 1965 hit single 'Que Sera Sera'. "I got a call from Mike Brady and Billy Pinnell from their radio show," Normie says. "Billy found the original version which had a slight Latin feel. I thought let's re-record it. ABC put it out via iTunes. Then we decided to do the whole digital mix with a radio mix and a dance mix".

Normie launched the single last night in Melbourne at the Toorak Lion. His band was young Melbourne act Level 6 with special guest Sam See on guitar.


    Tales and songs, some old, some new. Don Walker sings the words. Dance beats and sonics courtesy of the Suave Fucks. Don and band play the following venues throughout July and August and September.
