‘That really hasn’t gone to sleep at all. It’s maintained and maybe gotten bigger,’ he said of the 1990 single.

But he admitted he now shortens his performance of the four-minute song after fellow musician James Reyne branded it ‘shameless’.

It’s been a busy year for Daryl, who also performed at the Fire Fight Australia concert back in February.

In an interview with radio station 2GB at the time, Daryl admitted he was left starstruck after meeting Queen guitarist Brian May backstage.  

‘I saw him get out of his car, and I put my hand out and I said, “Thanks for doing this, Brian,”‘ he recounted.

‘He didn’t know who I was, I could have been anyone, and he said, “No, pleasure.” Two of my road crew saw it and they could not believe it. It was just one of those moments.’
