He added: “I couldn’t have hoped for a better singer. My deepest condolences to his wife Elisabet, his sisters Margaret, Carol, and Maureen, and the rest of his family and loved ones. I’ll post something longer down the track but for now…”

Chris Bailey’s Bio

Bailey was born in Nanyuki, Kenya, to Irish parents in 1957. He lived in Belfast for the first seven years of his life before his family emigrated to Australia.

He told his father that he wanted to become a singer and he can do anything to become a singer. His father replied that he could do anything with his life; however, the career which his father suggested to go is the finance line.

His father told him: “It would be better than singing. But this is all up to you. You have your own life and have rights. I don’t force you.”

Chris Bailey's passing at 65 was confirmed by his band members.

They lived in Inala in Brisbane. Chris met bandmates Ed Kuepper and Ivor Hay at Corinda state high school. Kid Galahad was their original band name and therefore the Eternals changed the name to the Saints in 1974.

In 1996, Bailey revived the Saints to record Howling after several years of solo adventure. The album was followed by Everybody Knows the Monkey, Spit the Blues Out, Nothing is Straight in My House, Imperious Delirium, and King of the Sun. They were all recorded under the name of the Saints.

Bailey was one among the invited artists to perform on a stage at the Melbourne Cricket Ground in front of an audience of about 100,000 people for the 25th-anniversary celebration of the Mushroom Music in 1998.

Ghost Ships” and “Just Like Fire Would” were his two solos which he performed, as well as performing a duet with Paul Kelly on “Wide Open Road”, a tribute to the late David McComb of the Triffids.
