Men At Work To Appeal?

Men At Work frontman Colin Hay gave a strong indication that he and former guitarist Ron Strykert will appeal the decision by an Australian court that their ’80s hit “Downunder” used portions of the Australian children’s song “Kookaburra Sits On The Old Gum Tree.”

Hay says the offending flute riff was added years after the band’s song was written.

On Feb. 25, the band, its record label EMI and “Kookaburra” publisher Larrikin Music were set to meet to decide the extent of damages.
