Rodney's Meet n Greet with Paul Kelly

Rodney was diagnosed with Glioblastoma Multiforme Grade 4 Brain Cancer. His family organised for Rodney to see his favourite singer Paul Kelly at the Bimbadgen Winery in NSW. Paul Kelly is Rodney’s favourite musician,


Rodney’s cousin Richelle contacted us to see if we might be able to make Rodney’s day even more awesome by meeting his idol.... Of course we said we would do all we could to make this a reality. Through Paul’s management, in particular Mel, we were able to say YES!

Richelle said “Paul’s time was completely focused on Rodney. He was very patient and asked a lot of questions about what Rodney was going through. He gave us way more than I expected. Rodney was so happy it was a really good day, thank you again for all your help. It was such an emotional day for us all thank you again. Wendy (Rodney’s wife) was very excited Paul made them all a vodka and squash, not that Wendy needed it at the time. Wendy even provided some inspiration for an upcoming song for Paul, she can't remember what she said but his guitarist said "there's a song for you Paul right there”

We are so glad that Rodney was able to meet his idol Paul Kelly and have some laughs with him too.
