Despite not releasing a hit song since the early '90s, 68-year-old Daryl Braithwaite wowed a glitterdrenched crowd in their early 20s on the opening night of the annual Falls Festival in Lorne. The former Sherbet frontman's solo hit One Summer was a crowd favourite, as was Howzat, but nothing compared to his extended rendition of The Horses.
