Quote Goes Viral


Late in 2011, Graham's one-line opinion, voiced to a friend, was put online on an image that sat on one of his pages until shared on facebook, where it reached over 27,000 people in the space a few days. As a result, the quote, "Don't download your whole life" has been put on a bumper sticker and T-shirts, available online here.
There are now a number of Live Music support pages appearing on facebook and other social networking sites. One of the pages that Graham supports - suggesting that airlines should have special packages to help Australian bands and musicians fly around their expansive continent - can be found here.
