Max is back

The word on the street is that Max Merritt, Squid Ink's shwarmi, who must spend every second day on dialysis for a rare kidney condition, has slipped away from his doctors and made the long journey from LA to be inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame this evening at the Melbourne Town Hall. What a guy.

Merritt has not ruled out getting on stage and playing with the Meteors. Tickets are still available for the ceremony so you have the the chance to get yourself a piece of that merseybeat surfpop with its unrelenting dance beat and his fine, gravelly voice.
