We wish we could say that Zach Braff had nothing to do with our fondness for Colin Hay, but alas, it was Scrubs which first introduced us to his solo work. Hay has made appearances in several episodes, and his songs have been featured in several more. Originally Scottish, Hay moved to Australia in the late 60s and formed Men at Work, which we all remember for such classics as Who Can it be Now? and Down Under. When the band broke up in the 90s, Hay went solo, recorded several albums, and began making movie appearances. None of which we would have ever known about, had we not developed what can only be called a 'Scrubs fetish' a few years back... but that's a story for another post.
Colin Hay plays for FREE in the Wolf Den at Mohegan Sun this Wednesday at 8pm. Mohegan Sun is located in scenic Uncasville, CT. We hope to see you there.
