Hate Reading? You can now see Jimmy Barnes’ life story in a bio-movie

 Jimmy Barnes. Cold Chisel frontman and all around Aussie legend (sure he was born overseas but we’re claiming him) is not only a talented singer but he’s also an acclaimed author with two books under his belt about his life. The first of which, Working Class Boy is set to hit theatres later this year for all you lazy sobs who can’t be arsed reading… that includes this guy!

James Dixon Swan started life in Glasgow before moving to South Australia where he experienced domestic violence, poverty and alcoholism in his family that would later fuel his life. This bio-movie will recount the story of how he grew to become one of Australia’s most recognised and loved musicians and the struggles/triumphs he faced along the way.
