COM­PASS: THE VIC SIMMS STORY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

6. 3 0PM, ABC Vic Simms was just 11 when leg­endary mu­si­cian Col Joye dis­cov­ered him and took him on the road. The first in­dige­nous per­former to ap­pear on Band­stand, Simms re­counts his in­cred­i­ble life story tonight from his up­bring­ing on an Abo­rig­i­nal mis­sion to his mu­si­cal break­through to the de­scent into al­co­holism and stint in jail that, iron­i­cally, reignited his ca­reer. Fas­ci­nat­ing.
