“Men at Work” Sax Player Greg Ham Dead.

They always say famous people die in three’s. First it was Dick Clark, now word from Down Under is ‘Men at Work’ sax and flute player Greg Ham has passed in his Melbourne home. He was 58. Men at Work was one of the biggest bands in the world in the early 80′s, and the flute solo on “Down Under” is as recognizable today as any riff or beat in music history.

Yahoo has the whole story here “Men at Work musician Greg Ham found dead” Colin Hay, lead singer of the band (who is playing the Wealthy Theatre May 18th) made this statement:

“”We played in a band and conquered the world together,” Hay said. “I love him very much. He’s a beautiful man. The saxophone solo on ‘Who Can It Be Now’ was the rehearsal take. We kept it, that was the one. He’s here forever.”

“Victoria state police confirmed that the deceased was the 58-year-old resident of the house but did not identify him by name, in keeping with local practice. Ham was 58 and neighbors said he was the lone occupant of the house”

“Living in a land down under
Where women glow and men plunder
Can’t you hear, can’t you hear the thunder?
You better run, you better take cover”

My guess for the third dead celeb? Abe Vigoda. TV’s Fish.
