Proudly dubbed “the loudest band in the land” when they first started gigging in Melbourne during the late 60’s – the Aztecs had become known as one of the greatest live acts in the country by the time the 70’s rolled around. Renowned for his pure raw energy and power, combined with incredible vocal talent, Billy Thorpe and his band soon became legends of the Australian Music scene.
