Sherbet star Clive Shakespeare has died at the age of 62 after losing his battle with prostate cancer.
The veteran guitarist passed away on Wednesday (15Feb12) after a long struggle with the disease.
British-born Shakespeare formed the Australian rock band in 1969 and enjoyed hits with songs including Summer Love, You've Got the Gun, Cassandra, Slipstream and Silvery Moon.
He quit in 1975, citing "personal reasons", and was replaced by Harvey James.
Shakespeare rejoined the band for a number of reunion gigs over the years and in February 2011, they played a benefit concert in honour of James following his death from lung cancer the previous month (Jan11).
American Thighs was released on this day in 1994.
