Trivia and Quotes

  • One of the all time musical legends

    Acclaimed by some of the greatest musical talent in the world Neil Finn has been entertaining us since 1977 when he first joined his older brother Tim in Split Enz.

    After the Enz ended in 1984 & after the final Enz tour in 1985 Neil with Split Enz drummer Paul Hester & Nick Seymour (brother of Mark Seymour from Hunters & Collectors) formed Crowded House who lasted until 1996 when Neil decided to split the band & go solo. He never forget his fellow band members & they frequently joined him on stage during his solo tours.

    As of 2005 Neil has completed touring for the Finn Brothers album inwhich he obviously collaborated with his brother Tim.

    Paul McCartney has stated he wished he wrote the biggest Crowded House song "Don't Dream it's Over", & while Neil isn't by name, the most recognised entertainer in the world, I would challenge you to find one person who hasn't heard one of his Enz or Crowdies classics.moreless
