The man playing the saxophone at the beginning of Men At Work‘s ‘Who Can It Be Now’ video, Greg Ham, was found dead at his home in Melbourne, Australia yesterday, April 19, he was 58.
Authorities have now determined his death was non-suspicious. His body was discovered Thursday when friends went to check on him.
Ham played flute, saxophone and keyboards in the iconic Australian group, which had a global smash in the early ’80s with ‘Down Under.’ He was a constant, energetic presence for the group, and perhaps its most recognizable member aside from frontman Colin Hay.
Ham joined Men At Work in 1979 as a replacement for Greg Sneddon. The group went on to become members of an elite circle in 1982 they secured simultaneous No. 1 singles and albums in the U.S. and U.K. with ‘Down Under’ and ‘Business As Usual,’ respectively.
