Working Class Man

by Jimmy Barnes

Why Our Staff Love Working Class Man:

Last year, the great Jimmy Barnes stunned us all with his incredibly touching story of a childhood marked by poverty and abuse. His book Working Class Boy was described as Australia’s answer to Angela’s Ashes, and went on to win the ABIA Biography of the Year. A year later in Working Class Man we see how the poor boy became a self-destructive and troubled rock star.

This is not a celebration of hedonism and drugs as fun - what you get here is a reflection on how not to do it, told with sincerity and clarity. Barnes looks at the destruction of decades and asks how it happened. He laments his friends departed too early, lost to recklessness, and he speaks of depression and suicide, amidst the glowing backdrop of champagne and gold records. The best biographies tell you what it was like to be there, to be that person in those circumstances, and this book delivers that in spades; with humour, with shocking candour, and with a life-affirming outcome. Insightful and entertaining, this book is not just for Chisel fans. It is the biography of the year.

Book Description: 

The Sequel to the Number 1 Bestseller Working Class Boy

It's a life too big and a story too extraordinary for just one book. Jimmy Barnes has lived many lives from Glaswegian migrant kid to iconic front man, from solo superstar to proud father of his own musical clan. In this hugely anticipated sequel to his critically acclaimed bestseller, Working Class Boy, Jimmy picks up the story of his life as he leaves Adelaide in the back of an old truck with a then unknown band called Cold Chisel.

A spellbinding and searingly honest reflection on success, fame and addiction; this self-penned memoir reveals how Jimmy Barnes used the fuel of childhood trauma to ignite and propel Australia's greatest rock'n'roll story.

But beyond the combustible merry-go-round of fame, drugs and rehab, across the Cold Chisel, solo and soul years this is a story about how it's never too late to try and put things right.
