Birthday Wishes to Australian Rock Musician

Today's Birthday, April 28: Australian rock musician Jimmy Barnes (1956 - )

Birthday wishes to Australian rock musician Jimmy Barnes (1956 – ).

Known for his working-class roots and dusty, gravelly vocal style, Jimmy Barnes rose to fame as the lead singer of the pub-rock band Cold Chisel before forging a successful solo career.

The rock legend recently experienced a new brand of fame as his bizarre, almost-comical performance in Kirin J Callinan’s 2017 music video Big Enough went viral and became a fleeting internet meme.

Barnes’ appearance as an ethereal cowboy shouting from the skies struck a humorous chord with a new generation of fans.

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Barnes and his family moved to Adelaide’s northern outskirts in 1961 and settled in Elizabeth.

The apprentice iron smelter was just 16 when he joined Cold Chisel, originally formed as a heavy metal outfit known as Orange, in 1973 and began playing shows around South Australia’s pub-rock scene.

The group moved to Sydney and signed a record deal in 1977 before releasing their self-titled debut album the following year with the iconic single Khe Sanh.

The song was banned on commercial radio because of it’s suggestive lyrics but still reached No.48 on the ARIA singles charts and became one of the band’s biggest songs.

The albums that followed, Breakfast At Sweethearts and East, cemented Cold Chisel as one of Australia’s most popular bands.

The band broke up in 1984, but “Barnsey” pushed ahead to unveil his debut solo album Bodyswerve and later hit single Working Class Man.

Burnt out from his rock-star lifestyle, alcoholism and public financial struggles, Barnes and his family resettled in France in 1994.

The rocker returned to Australia in 1996 and Cold Chisel reunited to record and tour 1998 album The Last Wave of Summer.

The band reformed to tour again in 2003 and released their eighth studio album, The Perfect Crime, in 2015.

He also found time for another nine studio albums and has twice topped the book charts for his memoirs, Working Class Boy and Working Class Man.

Barnes is the father of singer and television presenter David Campbell and has another son and three daughters with his wife of almost 40 years, Jane.
