Fortitude Valley Walk Of Fame

The Brisbane City Council has finally realised what a dearth of musical talent this city has and is now planning to create a 'Walk Of Fame' consisting of ten Brisbane artists. In light of Grant McLennan's passing away last year they've decided to name the Go-Betweens as the first inductee. The public, however, has the final say on the nine other artists joining them. Head over to the website to pick your favourite Brisbane artist from a shortlist of 25. Personally I'm hoping for the other nine artists to include Custard, Kev Carmody, Regurgitator, Resin Dogs, Screamfeeder, The Saints, and the Ups and Downs. More likely, however, it will include Savage Garden, the Bee Gees, Powderfinger, and Keith Urban, so it's up to you to get your votes in.

Their wouldn't be 10 artists from Brisbane worthy of being put on the walk.

We're known to have low standards here though.

I reckon the 'finger are shoo-ins unfortunately, Savage Garden and the Bee Gees deserve their spots.

Gav said...

You're probably right, and I won't even begrudge Powderfinger if they make it in either. But I don't think I could deal with a monument to Keith Urban on Brunswick Street.
