Karakoram Highway  In 1979 one of the great engineering feats of the twentieth century was completed and the Karakoram highway between Pakistan and China was finally opened to the public. The highway, also known as the Friendship Highway in China, was started in 1959. Due to its high elevation and the difficult conditions under which it was constructed, it's also sometimes referred to as the "Eighth Wonder of the World".

He was an activist in the 1981 anti Springbok Tour which resulted in him being sentenced to 12 months imprisonment. However, music and family has always prevailed and got him through tough times. His integrity, community consciousness and well-grounded family values continue to permeate the man that he remains today.
