Uncle Jimmy has been playing professionally around this island of ours for so many years I cant count that high. He has been voted as a national treasure! he has been presented with an 'Order of Australia' and many honorary doctorates for music with many educational institutions. So much more info on the living legend can be found at his wiki post here. More importantly is his recent work of The Jimmy Little Foundation - The Jimmy Little Foundation is working in a number of different areas with communities, government, schools and individuals to make sure we have a healthy future for Indigenous Australians. The Jimmy Little Foundation was set up to combat the upward curve of the disease and associated health problems among Australian Indigenous people through education and awareness.
The last vid for the day comes from a '10:30 Slot' best of 1999 on Rage the other night. I'm a big fan of the retro shows if you haven't noticed :)
It is Dr Jimmy (AO) doing his version of Cattle and Cane with some help from Karma County
You can also check out some more Jimmy Little at the Friday on my Mind blog here.
