In the caption, he wrote, “Shocked and sad to hear of the passing of Paul Matters. I first met Paul in 1973 when he was playing bass in ‘Armageddon’ at a gig in Hamilton, Newcastle N.S.W. When I was living in Toronto he would drop into the house in the late hours to party and he loved to party.” “In late ’75 after he departed AC/DC we played together in a one off band called ‘Miss Australia Band’ at a gig on a ferry on Lake Macquarie,” he continued. Linda Hamilton’s Twin Sister Leslie H Freas Passes Away at 63
