Working Class Man Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
The sequel to Jimmy Barnes' unforgettable childhood memoir, the number one best seller 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 best seller 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 and across the Cold Chisel, solo and soul years, this is a story about how it’s never too late to try to put things right.

Jimmy survived. Wow! True survivors do! Me too.

As a fellow Scot I can understand a lot of his early life prior to leaving for Australia and his determination to move forward and succeed while still feeling unworthy. Sadly us Scots are way too hard on ourselves and lack belief no matter how good we are.
Jimmy Barnes has worked his butt off to be the best rockstar in Australia and hasn’t had it all his own way. His anger, alcohol and drug addiction have played a huge part in his life - it’s amazing he’s still alive with the abuse he’s put his body through. Amazing story, sad and funny at times but definitely a worthwhile read for any Jimmy Barnes fans.
this would no doubt be a good read for an Aussie who is aquainted to Jimmy Barnes and his music, I had never heard of him before I bought the book.
just not for me
Took a lot of guts to share his childhood upbringing.
Went to Glasgow to see his tour about his life story in words and songs.
Well done Jimmy
