    Absolute brilliant player in the early 90s. Just an electric enigmatic unpredictable player. However he only hung around a few years. Was a reluctant star who then disappeared back to the bush shunning the limelight.

    Pretty sure Ewan was born in Goondiwindi and grew up in Toomel ah Boggabilla across the NSW Border from Goondiwindi?
