The Australian music community was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of legendary guitarist Phil Emmanuel, who died suddenly on May 24, 2018, as a result of an asthma attack.

Phil, together with brother Tommy, were major influences on generations of guitar players. Combining incredible guitar wizardry, with energetic, humorous banter, the much-loved Emmanuel Brothers captivated audiences throughout Australia, and the world.

I paid tribute to Phil at a recent concert, filmed at Magda Community Artz (Brisbane), on June 1. Featured are 2 tunes; an excerpt of 'Guitar Man' (David Gates) & 'Nashville Express' (Peter Posa) Sincere condolences to Phil's family. R.I.P Phil Emmanuel; thank you for the music & the memories.
