Shane Pinnegar Of 100 Percent Rock has interviewed Jeffrey Hoad of Kings Of The Sun and Rich And Famous.
Here is an excerpt:
There was a time when Kings Of The Sun, formed by Gold Coast brothers Clifford and Jeffrey Hoad, were the go-to Australian band in Hollywood for high profile tour supports and big-haired awesomeness.
Then the music scene changed in the early nineties, and KOTS rolled with the punches: they moved back to Australia and recorded a fourth album, Daddy Was A Hobo Man, which remained unreleased until 2011.
Around 2001 they rebranded as The Rich & Famous, broadening their sound in the process and releasing another three albums before both brothers dropped off the radar amid rumours of a falling out.
Fast forward to September 2013 and Clifford Hoad’s Kings Of The Sun released Rock Til Ya Die, a solid Aussie rock album but without Jeffrey’s distinctive and charismatic vocals, in a different class to the Kings Of The Sun records which had come before. It also hammered home the point that the brothers weren’t on the same page any more.
