Greg Arnold (Things Of Stone And Wood)

Fri 21 April 2017

Greg Arnold’s band Things Of Stone And Wood were so big in the early ’90s with 'Happy Birthday Helen' that The Late Show did a parody of them. Greg takes Barry Divola on a guided tour of his childhood in Victoria, commentating on his own cricketing skills, seeing Suzi Quatro play at his very first concert and creating The Democratic Beatles Party at school. Greg plays The Sweet, The Buggles, Kate Bush and more. And yes, he’s still with Helen.
