In 2023, original Red Wiggle Murray Cook revealed the hardest time he spent in the iconic children’s group.

The 63-year-old, who left the band in 2012, said the years spent on tour took a toll on his personal life as he was away from his family for long periods of time.

«We could have done better. «I remember my young son saying, ‘I don’t like music because it’s what distracts dad,'» he told The Sydney Morning Herald.

In recent years, The Wiggles have eased the burden of their performance schedules by expanding the four-piece band to include four additional performers – Evie Ferris, Tsehay Hawkins, Kelly Hamilton and John Pearce.

The singer added that being in The Wiggles was both rewarding and challenging as they often played over 300 shows a year.
