    I first saw Fat Albert at Talle Surf Club. Lochie had a medical issue with his lung but battled through to the end of the set. I was really worried for him (in a Motherly way) Both Lochie and Matt were so much fun. I am sure Lochie didn’t realise how special he was. RIP beautiful boy Sending love to Matt and family

    I first met Lockie while I was working behind the bar at a wedding function centre. That feels like a life time ago, we where all so young and I can genuinely say I made two friends in Matt and Lockie since then. Without fail I was always greeted with that big smile and a even bigger hug if we ran into each other. Sending my love to Matt and family. Rest easy Lockie x

  • Kathy Rainbow

    You have touched so many hearts Lockie both with your music and your infectious beautiful energy.  I know you thought you should of been part of the 27 Club and given your uniqueness, awesomeness and talents, I too believe the 27 Club had your name on it … but WE needed you here more for a few more years to keep spreading and shining your magic …. ” The Lockie Effect ” … something that all of us now have embedded deep in our hearts.

    Although you may not be here in physical form, I know you will always look after your loved ones, that’s just who you are.

    My deepest and sincerest condolences to James, Matty, Meika, your Mum and your loved ones.

    Lockie J Buggy, I say with such Love and Gratitude …. I am so honoured to have our path’s cross in this life time and I know I will see you again in the next.

    RIP- ” Rock In Paradise “

  • Jody

    I knew you, even though you didn’t know me. A great mate of mine – Brett Budgie introduced you and your brother to me a long time ago. You were playing at Cabarita, I loved your sound, vibe and energy. Over the years, I was privileged to watch you play many, many more times up and down the coast. You had so much talent and were bigger than life itself. I am truly sorry for your struggles and I truly wish you knew how many people’s lives you touched. You gave us fans memories of fantastic nights out with friends, drinking, dancing, singing and lots of laughing. You are missed and loved by many….even the ones you didn’t know. Rock on !

  • Paul Garrett

    We last saw Lockie play with Fat Albert a few months ago at the Chinderah Tavern. They were playing on the deck and there was something about the amp that was really pissing him off so he kept jumping off the stage during the first few songs to listen for himself and then fiddle with the amp settings and then off the stage again to check. We found this amusing coz it sounded just fine to us but I guess this just shows how he was such a perfectionist and very talented musician. We had a chat with him when we were leaving and he seemed so pleased that we took the time to do so. Sincere condolences to his family and friends – R.I.P Lockie

  • Joanne Blair

    Our hearts go out to you all and we wish you both but comfort and strength, all our love Paul, Jo, Glenn and Sara (C~Vue)



  • Hannah Moore

    Through this journey we call life we all know death is the only certainty
    iv been to a few funerals and as strange as it is to say I thought I had learnt to navigate it abit better as times gone on . but this one hit hard and a little different I still cant believe it’s real I still can’t believe your no longer earth side.
    Some of my best memories of my 20s are with you Matty and Shannon at the good ol surfers beer garden and I will forever cherish them and you
    Even though nearly everything that came out your mouth was either questionable and or (majority) inappropriate we loved you cause that’s just who you are were as a person but nothing showed more then your humble soul and heart of gold
    I’m so happy I got to experience life with you lock even though I’m still trying to wrap my head around it and I’m still mad I know how hard you fought
    May your laughter and love echo through the ages and your memory warm our hearts
    Love you always my dude
