‘Leave with any of his ‘b.....s’ he will have you shot’.
What a crazy life he lived. Maximum both on & off field. RIP.

I don't like this thread much. every time I read about someone else dying it makes me feel older and older.
But Bones Hillman, sheesh. Only ten years older than me and the Oils were a huge part of my teenage music appreciation years.
Sorry, I should have included this in my original post. If you haven't seen Midnight Oil: 1984, then as Molly would say, do yourself a favour.
Hillman was a top bloke by all reports and a damn huge loss to the Oils and his legacy is a good one.They were so good live around then, I saw them probably 1988 in Blacktown RSL in Sydney...
From that era this was a great concert - remember watching it live on ABC.
One of the greatest ever.
A huge loss to World Footy, and the mourning I'd be expecting across Argentina and the world to be huge.
Sadly from his last decade of life I'm not surprised I hadnt read of his passing sooner.
Played Hard and by all reports Lived hard.
RIP Hand Of God.
Hey @antman can you please point me at the right streaming service if you know it?The Diego doco is good. At Napoli once he got involved with the Mafia and things started going south, he'd play on the Saturday, "party" for three days and nights, then sweat it out on the training track midweek, do it all again the next weekend. And he really left nothing behind on the track.
