strange most people i know think and thought he might have some native american or aborigine descent
and i was fighting with them and said NO HE WAS BORN IN ENGLAND and now when i know he is half aussie its possible that he has some aborigine roots

i remember the START ME UP video which was one of their most famous songs ever. In that video he looks so exotic
