  1. Very nice to meet you tonight after We Will Rock You.
    I’m Paula Parore aka OZ who sang the ballad “No One But You” Only the good die young.
    Hope to meet again one day.

    Kindest wishes


  2. Thanks Paula. Was indeed great to meet you. I will certainly be in touch if I need a great singer. Rod

  3. Hello Rod, the small taste of “Mates” is amazing, but it has whetted my appetite for the complete show, especially as I know the story so well . Great work Love Chris from the Land of the Long White Cloud.

  4. Hi Christine. Was so good you made it to “ MATES Showcase.” The actual script is finished for the full- length two hour show so hopefully by mid next year it will be showing in a theatre here in Perth. We will definitely tour this to all states and hopefully New Zealand. Rod x

  5. Hi Rod,

    You haven’t changed since, the time I was at Corpus Christi College, which was about 26 years ago when I left. Your music on your tube is wonderful
