Every philanthropic wine project needs a rock song to help set the pace. Today we’d like to introduce you to our adopted anthem, Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool, which in May 1971 rocketed to the top of the Austrailian singles charts.
Discovered on a compliation album in my wife’s record collection on May 27th, I’ve since played Eagle Rock by Daddy Cool hundreds of times. Quite simply, it is the most rocking, raptor-influenced track in the history of rock n’roll. And it has kept us grooving, inspired and focused on making a difference! It’s our own version of the “Rocky” theme song.
One of the coolest things is that a few weeks ago Ross heard about the Burning Hawk project, donated a copy of his CD to the project team, and wrote the following:
“It’s great that the song I wrote and recorded 1971 is being used to inspire such a worthy project…We have also been very supportive of a raptor survival campaign here in Austrailia…BTW I LOVE wine which is one more reason I am sympathetic to you cause. Coolest, Ross”
