Colin Hay - Waiting for my real life
13 January 2017 | by mlloyd-67789See all my reviews

Such a great doc! This guy has so much to offer, music-wise. I'm glad there's a movie about him. I was a fan of Men at Work, his original band, so it's great to see his whole journey. I'm also excited to see him go on tour this year. I highly recommend this documentary. It's so interesting to see how he's changed since Men at Work. And to see how his music has changed. He's gone through some struggles since then and see all that. And it talks about him on Scrubs and how his solo career started and everything. It also includes the law suit he had for "down under" so it's got some of the real behind the scenes stuff. It shows how hard he worked to get where he is. Gotta see!
