Rose embarked on a modest singing career in Australia having hits with 'I Thank You' and 'Please Remember Me' in 1970. The song 'I thank you' was a nationwide hit, produced and written by Johnny Young and engineered by John L Sayers.
"I think of myself as an Australian," Rose said. "I don't go in for all this black and white thing. To me, we're all Australians."
