VALE JIM KEAYS: 1946-2014
“Jim had an aura about him; you always knew when he was in the room,” is how the best remembered of the bass players that passed through the ranks of The Masters Apprentices, Glenn Wheatley, recalled singer-songwriter and the one constant throughout the entire Masters’ existence, Jim Keays, who succumbed, at 10.30am, Friday 13 June, to pneumonia from complications resulting from a seven-year battle with multiple myeloma cancer. Keays was 67.
As a special tribute, this is Jim's highly acclaimed solo album from 1974 with the hit title track "Boy From the Stars".
..you're a legend, Jim...now you're up there with the stars...
