Greg Ham, the flautist in Men at Work, has been found dead at his home in Melbourne, Australia, the BBC reports. The 58-year-old musician was discovered by two friends who had become concerned for his well-being after not having seen him for some time.
Local authorities have not officially confirmed the identity of the body, but have established a crime scene and are investigating the cause of death. "Because of the early stages of our investigation, we're not prepared to go into the exact details of what has occurred," Detective Senior Sergeant Shane O'Connell told reporters in Australia.
