Daddy Cool is an Australian rock band formed in Melbourne in 1970 with the original line-up of Wayne Duncan (bass, Vocals), Ross Hannaford (Lead guitar, bass, vocals), Ross Wilson (Lead vocals, guitar, Harmonica) and Gary Young (drums, vocals) . Their hit single "Eagle Rock" was released in May 1971 and stayed at #1 on the Australian singles chart for ten weeks.

"Eagle Rock" is a classic Australian song, released by Daddy Cool in May 1971 on the Sparmac Record Label. It went on to become the best selling Australian single of the year, achieving gold status in eleven weeks, and remaining at #1 on the national charts for a (then) record ten weeks. "Eagle Rock" also spent 17 weeks at the #1 spot on the Melbourne Top 40 Singles Chart. The song was re-released by Wizard Records in 1982, and reached #17 on the Australian singles charts.

Guitarist, vocalist and the song's writer Ross Wilson[4] was living and performing in London England when he wrote the song. He explained his inspiration for the song:

It came from a Sunday Times liftout magazine A-Z on music. In the before blues section there was an evocative photo of rural black Americans dancing in a dirt poor juke joint - the caption was along the lines of "some negroes 'cut the pigeon wing' and 'do the eagle rock'"

=M= says: if you're not Australian, this probably doesn't mean anything to you at all. :)
