    Ok, she's not a guitarist. However, I saw her in concert last year and she is a pro performer and an inspiration! Olivia was nice enough to take photos with us fans after her concert. She is too cool....I don't remember if she's a Brit who lives in Austrailia or an Aussie who lived in the U.K. but whatever...if she needs anything...a kidney transplant, for example, I'll donate mine.

    Her bass player and guitarist must both have nerves of steel because they were sharing the stage with an angel and neither missed a note. No one did! Olivia was even doubling the guitar solo with her voice which I had never heard before.

    I am proud to say that Olivia is my music inspiration!....

    ONJ is definitely an Aussie, but has worked a lot in both the UK and the US.

    Back in around 1980 I have a young Chinese guy working for me who absolutely idolised ONJ, even had a room in his house dedicated to her. ( not sure how his wife felt about that )

    It was priceless hearing him singing Orivia songs in his heavily accented chinglish

    I think I'd pay more to hear that than the real thing. Not disrespecting the real thing but your Chinglish singer sounds like he'd be fun.

    Yep.
    Further to that my wife came to Australia as a baby in arms in 1955 from The Isle of Man, that makes her Manx and our kids half-casts. I love my Manx wife and half-cast kids LOL

    There are many 'Aussie' performers not born in in this country......

    John Peter Farnham was born in Dagenham, England, on 1 July 1949

    James Swan (as Jimmy Barnes was known for the earliest years of his life) was born in Glasgow, Scotland, 28 April 1956

    Colin James Hay, lead singer with Men At Work (born 29 June 1953) Hay was born in Saltcoats, North Ayrshire, Scotland

    Russell Ira Crowe (born 7 April 1964) in the Wellington suburb of Strathmore Park, New Zealand - better known for his acting (thankfully) as his music is not so good

    Only truly Aussie home grown international act was INXS
