Remembering Heath Ledger as Didgeridoo Player

Before Heath became an actor he was slated to be a pro surfer, and he was also a fairly accomplished didgeridoo player.

MindShare is a monthly event held at different venues around L.A. The night we did our didgeridoo presentation it was held at the old Los Angeles … [ Read the Rest... ]
