Originally from Adelaide Stars moved to Melbourne after being discovered by Beeb Birtles of Little River Band. By this stage the Andy Durant joined the band and began writing some of the most notable Australian songs before his untimely death at the age of 25.

Stars supported The Beach Boys, Linda Ronstadt, and Joe Cocker and toured extensively to sell out gigs Australia wide. Many have said their country rock blend coupled with Durant’s lyrics were well ahead of their time and are often referred as Australia’s Eagles.

The band’s debut album Paradise peaked at No.11 on the Aussie charts and included their highest charting single Look After Yourself. This was followed by their second album Land of Fortune and then 1157 named after the number of live gigs they had done. The single Mighty Rock can be heard on radio today and is often requested by their loyal fan base.
