Soul-styled rock singer Jeff St John (born Jeffrey Newton in Sydney, 1946) fronted a number of first class bands during the 60s and 70s, including The Id and Copperwine. His performances were memorable not only for his strong, soulful vocals but for the wheelstands and spins he would execute with his wheelchair.

Erl Dalby is best remembered for Can’t Wait For September by Erl Dalby and Pyramid, a classic pop gem written and produced by ex-Easybeats Harry Vanda and George Young (#15 Sydney, #18 Brisbane). The story goes that Erl Dalby’s previous band Erl’s Court, formed in Wollongong, is heard on that record, but was soon replaced for touring and promotion by Pyramid, a six-piece band featuring three vocalists.
These days, Erl Dalby, now Erl Montaigue, lives in Wales and teaches Tai Chai and martial arts. See his website Erle Montaigue’s Tai Chi World which includes news of his more recent band, Moontagu Blues Band.
