A police investigation has begun after the body of Men At work flautist Greg Ham was discovered at his home in Australia.

Melbourne police have established a crime scene at his Melbourne residence after friends raised the alarm when they hadn't seen him for some time.

"Because of the early stages of our investigation, we're not prepared to go into the exact details of what has occurred," Detective Senior Sergeant Shane O'Connell said to reporters in Australia.

Ham came to fame as a member of seventies group Men At Work and played the flute on their biggest international hit, 'Down Under'. He also played saxophone, keyboards and harmonica for the group.
