        I like his sound, too. When watching the video, I kept thinking, "Who is this guy? I must have missed someone in American country and western singers." But I kept noticing that his truck was always on the left side of the road so I finally figured out he could not be from the USA.

          Thanks people,
          Slim is a real Aussie Icon, even those who do not like Country music still know of Slim, he's a bit like a Musical John Wayne, here in that sense. Even if you don't like his movies, you still know of him and respect him.

          Here's another Slim song about my Town, Kalgoorlie.
