The Masters Apprentices (or ‘The Masters’ to fans) were an Australian rock band fronted by Jim Keays on lead vocals, which formed in 1965 in Adelaide, South Australia, relocated to Melbourne in February 1967 and attempted to break into the United Kingdom market from 1970, before disbanding in 1972.
Their popular Australian singles are “Undecided”, “Living in a Child’s Dream”, “5:10 Man”, “Think About Tomorrow Today”, “Turn Up Your Radio” and “Because I Love You”.
We place this music video piece as a tribute to Australian rock legend Jim Keays, lead singer of The Masters Apprentices, who has died at the age of 67 on June 13th 2014.
“The Masters are to Australia what the Rolling Stones are to England, and The Doors are to America.”
