The GM- Simon Black

Blacky is said to do his finest work in September on the footy field. With three Premiership Medals and  a Norm Smith to go along with his three All-Australian, three Best & Fairest's and a Brownlow Medal, his record speaks for itself.

But I believe its the following weeks after September where Blacky does his best work on dance floors and Kareoke bars. Now that he is an older statesmen, the time spent on the 'D-floor' has shortened but he still dominates and when his arm starts pumping you know things are about to escalate.

Getting the Great Man on the karaoke stage is a hard feat but once up there he's impossible to get down. Let's see what Blacky's influences are when belting out a tune.

Blacky who's your favourite artist of all time? Pearl Jam

At the moment? Ben Howard 

Pop song stuck in head? Hey Ya- Outkast

Do you listen to music before games? Sometimes to chill out if I'm feeling nervous. Particularly on the bus to away games interstate. 

Any musical talent? 
I have very minimal music talent, learnt the guitar briefly at school, created my own song called 'Baby Don't Cry'. Those three words were the whole lyrics to the song, it was a big hit in my household growing up. I still sing it from time to time now when im having a flat day! I also learnt the recorder at school. 

Radio Station you listen to? Listen to Triple J mostly. 

Your Karaoke song would be? Santa Monica, Everclear. 

Thoughts on my music taste? You know I thoroughly enjoy your music taste and am often asking you about new bands or tips for me to check out, you're my go to man for cracking new music!

If there was only one song I could listen to forever probably be? Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah or Ben Harper - Amen Omen

Well, the great man has great taste no wonder he is a star!
