'Rosie' Comes Home

Sister of Dave and Ray Davies, "Rose," who inspired this 1966 Kinks song, has died.  She was, I  believe, the oldest of six sisters.  The song bemoans her move to Australia with husband Arthur--and need we add that perhaps the band's greatest concept album, sometimes called "the first rock opera"  was 1969's Arthur in which a couple moves to Australia (see second song below).
