Adalita sharing the stage with Dean Turner's children


Dean Turner, founder and bassist of Magic Dirt passed away on August 21, 2009. A true Aussie rock icon, he will be sorely missed. In a statement issued soon after his death Deanʼs band mates Adalita, Raul and Adam issued a statement which read, 

“For nine years, Dean battled an extremely rare form of soft tissue cancer called dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP). Being a very private man, Dean chose to fight the cancer in a quiet and dignified manner. He displayed great courage and incredible stoicism. And above all else he had an unshakeable positive attitude throughout his long ordeal. His composure and grace during this time will never be forgotten and is an inspiration to us all.” 

This Youtube video of Adalita sharing the stage with Dean's children at The 2011 Meredith Music Festival made me a bit melancholy. RIP Dean, thanks for all the sensational music.  

Just in case Magic Dirt has somehow escaped your observation, please feel free to introduce yourself to it by one of my favourite tunes, Pace It.
