Look Away on CD

Peter's earliest published composition, Look Away, is only the second Virgil Brothers track to find it's way on to a CD.  This release is on a new compilation CD Fairytales Can Come True from new record label Psychic Circle.  More details on the Compilations Albums page



As Peter's birthday comes around once again, it is strange to think that he would have been 58 this year and although it is almost 6 years since he left us, his memory is still as strong as ever. There have been quite a few people contacting the website in recent weeks, sharing their memories of Peter.  It's been great to hear from them all and wonderful to know Peter is still well remembered and highly thought of.  

You can read some of those memories on the Guestbook and also at the new Memories page in the This and That section of the website.

Thank you to all those who have shared their memories so far and if you have any memories of your own which you woul like to share, please get in touch.

Early Works on the Net

Music Pop Hits - If you haven't yet heard any of Peter's hits from his teenage years, follow the links from this page through to Australsian 50s-60s and you can listen to 3 of Peter's solo songs and the Virgil Brothers' Temptation Bout to Get Me


“New” Song

Peter Doyle Recording on the Internet!

You can now hear a “new” song from Peter on Neil Gray's MySpace page.  Neil has included a song by Peter called Bad to Me and performed by Skinflick, a band fronted by Peter and on which Neil played bass in the 1980's.  See also Neil's blog About the Music which tells a little more about Neil's association with Peter.

Neil Gray remastered the tracks for Peter's Rarities CD.

And Another!

Neil has added another previously unreleased Peter Doyle track to his page.  Like a Diamond in the Sun is very different from the first track, but still in complete contrast to any of Peter's recordings so far released.  Well worth a listen!

Rock On


New Seekers

The New Seekers start a new tour on March 15th with a special show, appearing with original Seeker and New Seeker Keith Potger.  Keith is also currently engaged in his own tour.
Dates and details for both tours available on
The New Seekers Website

You can now also find the New Seekers at MySpace

This year's tour includes a medley in tribute to Peter Doyle and starts with Mick Flynn singing I Can Say You're Beautiful, a very different version to Peter's rendition and good to know Peter's work is still being performed live.

Updated 26th July

Lyn Paul

Lyn has joined the cast list of Footloose for their UK tour starting in Salford on February 9th.  It will be the first opportunity for Lyn to work with her sister Nikki.  More information on the
Lyn Paul Website

The current Footloose tour has now ended but I caught up with the show a few weeks ago, Lyn was fantastic as always, she asked to be remembered to everyone through the website and as Lyn said - Peter Doyle will never be forgotten!
