Rooney was a member of the notorious 80’s group, The Lonely Hearts. Then he switched his microphone for a scalpel to become an orthopaedic surgeon! However, song writing was never far from his heart. His most recent album BETTER DAY was recorded and produced by Kevin ‘The Caveman’ Shirley.

Shirley has produced acts including Joe Bonamassa, John Hiatt, Beth Hart, Black Country Communion, Aerosmith, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Rush. In Australia, Cold Chisel, Silverchair, The Baby Animals, The Angels, Screaming Jets, and the Divinyls.
