Welcome, wherever you come from, good day

     
   
    31 August 2014 ♥ RIP  
I am deeply saddened by the news of the loss of another great man from among our ranks; the great 'Black Lace' guitarist Geoffrey Compton. So many memories of his guitar playing with the 'Lace' and great times at the Foundation and around Redfern in the old days. His place in the musical and political history of Black Australia is guaranteed. This man is going to be deeply missed by the multitudes who loved him. My thoughts are with his family and friends. Gary Foley


Geoff Compton [second from left] was in Silva Linings, formed in 1966, and renamed Black Lace in 1972. Geoff was in the band till 1983, when he went back home to Tweed Heads to live. With Mac Silva [1942-1989], Arnold Williams & Drew Donnelly in 1978
