An Icehouse Facebook post starts with the simple message: ‘It is with heavy hearts that we let you all know of the passing of Anthony Smith’.
Smith, who was sometimes called Adam Hall, was one of the early members of Flowers which became Icehouse in late 1981.
Anthony died at his home in north Lismore last Friday aged 61.
Anthony Smith played keyboards and sang backing vocals on the debut Flowers Icehouse album as well as touring extensively with the band between 1979 and 1981.
He went on to play and perform with many other musicians in the subsequent years including Matt Moffitt of Matt Finish and Peter Koppes of The Church among others.
