Doc Neeson 1947 - 2014 R.I.P.

Angels frontman Doc Neeson dies after battle with brain cancer

"HE was a gentleman and one of Australian rock’s most underestimated singers."

Those are the words of Australian rock band the Angels’ drummer Buzz Bidstrup, following the news of his friend and former colleague Doc Neeson’s death at the age of 67.
The singer died from a brain tumour at a private Sydney Hospital early today.
Neeson shot to fame with the Angels in the 1970s and the band went on to become one of the most popular in Aussie rock history, with hits that included Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again?, Into the Heat and No Secrets and a string of successful albums spanning more than 20 years..
