Roger Knox was born at Toomelah Aboriginal Mission near Moree in NSW in 1948. Six years ago he was badly injured in a plane crash. In 1983 he formed his own band which he named Euraba after the Euraba bush. He chose this title because it was the juice from the Euraba bush, along with goanna oil, with which he was treated after his plane crash and which he believes was instrumental in his recovery.
