The band only released one album but had hits like Don't Need Love, Soul Revival and Cry In Shame.
Diesel went solo in '91 releasing the hit single Love Junk and the album Hepfidelity.
In the 90's the hits flowed like Come to Me, Tip Off My Tongue and Man Alive.
Diesel has released 14 albums and worked with the likes of brother-in-law Jimmy Barnes, Richard Clapton & Chris Wilson.
His most recent album Americana came out in 2016.
Diesel has been a guest on Gold Central Victoria and was kind enough to pose for a photo at a guitar expo.
