The Wiggles To Look After Ousted Member
The stars of The Wiggles have confirmed former member Sam Moran will be "looked after for the rest of his life" after he stepped aside to let Greg Page return to the group.
Founding member Page left the line-up in 2006 due to illness and Moran joined as his replacement, writing songs with the Australian group and touring the world.
Page has now returned to The Wiggles after regaining his health and Moran agreed to give him his job back, but bandmate Anthony Field is adamant the substitute won't be left to struggle financially.
He tells the Sydney Morning Herald, "(Moran will be) looked after for the rest of his life... The thing that people don't know is that we included him in songs (that he didn't write) as a gesture of goodwill. We wrote hundreds of songs and he probably wrote three songs with us. It's something that we didn't have to do... Financially he's in a much better position than if he had never met us."
