Greedy Smith Death
Mental As Anything founding member and songwriter Andrew “Greedy” Smith has died after suffering a heart attack in his car on Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019. He was aged 63. He was a vocalist, keyboardist, harmonicist and songwriter with Australian pop/new wave band Mental As Anything. Smith wrote many of their hit songs including “Live it Up” which peaked at No. 2 on the Australian singles chart. Smith had a solo music career, had worked with other bands and was also an artist and television personality.
Mr Bartlett, who has managed the Australian pop-rock band for 16 years, said Smith’s fatal heart problem came as a surprise. “One of the healthiest guys I’ve seen,” Mr Bartlett said.
The band released a statement saying: “It is with an incredibly heavy heart to announce that one of the founding members of Mental As Anything, Andrew Greedy Smith passed away last night …
“Our grief and confusion at this time are little compared to what Andrew’s family will be feeling — our hearts and prayers go out to them.”
Mental As Anything group was formed in Sydney in August 1977 by Smith, along with Reg Mombassa, Martin Plaza, Wayne “Bird” Delisle, and Peter O’Doherty. Smith was also a vocalist, alongside Plaza, and a keyboard player.
Mental As Anything had top 10 Australian hits with If You Leave Me, Can I Come Too?, Too Many Times and Live It Up. The band’s debut album featured the song The Nips Are Getting Bigger, which charted inside the top 20 in Australia and is still regularly played – among many other Mental As Anything songs – on radio stations around the country.
Mental As Anything was inducted into the Australian Recording Industry Association Hall of Fame in 2009. In November 2019, Smith was inducted into the Australian Songwriters Hall of Fame.
