Replacing an ailing John Hannah in early 1981, Jeff Neill’s impact on the band was immediate with the recording and release of Streetheart’s self titled “Streetheart” album. That album would go on to be the most successful album in the band’s catalogue. Many of the songs that Jeff co-wrote for that album are still staples of classic rock radio across the country. After the breakup of the band in early 1984, Jeff spent 11 years writing, recording and touring internationally with legendary Australian rocker, Jimmy Barnes. In late 2003, after coming back home to Canada, Jeff rejoined Streetheart. Along with playing guitar for the band, Jeff has also taken over representing all the business affairs of Streetheart.
