R.I.P. Greg Ham

The BBC reports that Greg Ham, flutist for the ridiculously popular early-’80s Aussie new wavers Men At Work, has been found dead of unknown causes in his Melbourne home. He was 58.

Men At Work were some of the MTV era’s first instant icons, and their 1981 album Business As Usual sold a staggering number of copies, absolutely dominating the worldwide charts during the summer before Thriller happened. Ham played a number of instruments in the group, but he’s best-remembered for the flute riff from “Down Under.” Watch that song’s video below.
