Aussie singer, who was also a sports broadcaster for SBS and SKY News, has died.
Aussie singer Damien Lovelock, who was also a sports broadcaster for SBS and SKY News, has died aged 65.
He died on Saturday following a battle with cancer.
Lovelock fronted the hard rock band The Celibate Rifles from 1980 and was a contributor to The World Game and the football panel on SKY News.
On Twitter Craig Foster paid tribute, saying “Sending love back home from India to friends and family of the great Damien Lovelock at the passing of an Australian music legend & a loved member of our SBS football family. A life artfully lived that touched all who called him a friend, and many more besides. Goodbye mate.”
This made me smile and Les’s laugh made it even sweeter. Boy, it’s been such a rough couple of years. We’ve had to say goodbye to some true giants within the football community, both in this clip and out. It doesn’t get any easier because they don’t make them like this anymore. https://t.co/Gj3oIV5joo
