Thorne, Neville

Neville Thorne (?–?), musician, was born at Walgett, New South Wales. He replaced Max Kim, Cyril Green’s brother-in-law, as bass player in the Jimmy Little Trio and recorded a couple of records with Little before moving back to Walgett in the 1970s. He died in Walgett. In 2005 he was posthumously awarded the Red Ochre award from the Australia Council for his service to the Aboriginal community as a musician and for being a member of the first Aboriginal band to hold a commercial recording contract.
