Hooked

Well, his hair is now white, his cowboy hat a bit more beat up but Ray Sawyer (aka Dr John) still loves to rock and will flash his Sexy Eyes at Sylvias Mother in Lismore soon.

The band was known as Dr Hook and was responsible for huge hits in the 70s and 80s like Sylvias Mother, Sharing The Night Together, When Youre In Love With A Beautiful Woman, Only Sixteen, Sexy Eyes, and others. They released 60 albums that went gold and platinum!

But frontman Ray Sawyer with his cowboy hat, his eye-patch and his wild stage antics so caught the image of the band many reckoned he was Dr Hook.

Dr Hook featuring Ray Sawyer will hit the Lismore Workers Club stage all fired up on Friday, November 17.

His hair has changed colour but he still has the eye-patch (blinded in one eye by a car accident in 1967) and the hat. And still has a passionate energy for performance. This Alabama boys current style is harder-edged and more soulful than his previous country-rock and pop efforts.

Freebie: The Echo has two double passes to give to some lucky readers. To go in the draw to win phone 6622 2888 between 10.15 & 10.30am next Monday, November 13, and tell us if one of Dr Hooks most famous hits was called Cover Of a) Vogue, b) Time or c) The Rolling Stone.
