Just heard the sad news of Matt Price’s passing. Far too young to die at 45, leaves behind a wife and family.
Matt was one the great journalists in Australia, and his Fremantle Dockers column in ‘The Australian’ was something we savoured.
The now ex Prime Minister took time out from his busy pre election schedhule to visit Matt, which shows the level of respect he had in the political community as well.
I have a signed copy of “Way to Go”, Price’s book on the Fremantle Dockers, which suddenly assumes more value in my mind.
