Amphlett paved the way for female performers in so many ways, byt being unafraid to be 'out there', you never knew exactly what you were going to get at their gigs.
When I saw Divinyls live some drunken arsehole in the crowd was giving her hell (my vocabulary of four-letter words expanded exponentially that night). Chrissy put up with it for a while, but when the fool bellied up to the stage with his umpteenth tinny and started in again she - without missing a note - calmly plucked the tinny from his hand and upended it all over him. It was priceless.
So was she. One of the greatest talents this country's ever produced as a singer, a writer and a performer.
