Mark Seymour: 'This Is Pretty Much My Life Setlist'

Mark Seymour had challenge ahead of him when putting together his latest album, Roll Back The Stone, 1985-2016.

How to decide which songs made the cut, and which didn’t.

“It’s pretty much my life setlist,” the Hunters and Collector’s frontman told Carmen and Fitzi on Wednesday morning.

After getting the list down to 36, he had to whittle it down further to 24, “and today we’ve asked you to cull it from 24 to one,” said Fitzi.

And it was a banger, the iconic Holy Grail.

He also talked about his recent appearance on the ABC's Q&A.

“You have no idea, I was terrified,” he said.

“I’m very reluctant to just mouth off, unless I have actually done a bit of research… but it was a privilege and I took it very, very seriously.”

Roll Back The Stone, 1985-2016 is out now... and he'll be performing at Perth's Astor Theatre on August 26.
