    Gotta love his guest appearance in this clip

    Interesting guy. Has a few musical projects going post-wiggles, and has a huge collection of vintage guitars. Wife and I went to see Springsteen 5 years or so back, he and his family pulled into the parking spot next to us. They were tall as all get up!

    had the wiggles visit a few times.. good fun for all..its takes a lot of creativity to captivate 5 yr olds for any length of time in an orderly fashion and watch them all wiggle in unison ..good stuff used to lmao everytime they were in house :)

    with respect of course...

    that was his by line in the wiggles, pretending to doze off and the others yelling wake up greg...

    to face that in real life at a gig must have been horrifying... yet, I wondered if anyone right there had thought of the sad irony they were facing...

    I'm glad he was close to good help, including a nurse from the audience who took a major part in his revival..

    Think it was Wake up Jeff!

    Side note, my wife worked with the sister of the Field brothers, but she sadly passed away about 6 months ago, only a very short time after she retired from her work. The Cockroaches (good time rock n roll band from the 80s with many Wiggles before they were Wiggles!) would often reform and play at the work Christmas party.

    Saw the Cockies at the Royal Mail in Tewantin one friday night.. early 80's sometime..

    we grabbed a gig poster for our wall at the house.... it was quite a collage of all the bands that played there...
