Jimmy Barnes Biography Extract

I first saw Jimmy Barnes fronting the Australian pub-rock band Cold Chisel in Adelaide in November 1974 - they were the support act for touring British heavy metal outfit Uriah Heep. I didn't know who the band was at the time but they certainly went on to make an impression over the next ten years or so. Barnes's "biography", Icons of Australian Music: Jimmy Barnes, has now hit the stands, and you can read the first chapter, [PDF file]. The book - if this chapter is anything to go by - isn't a "straight" biography in the usual sense. But interesting nevertheless.
