In the hugely anticipated second volume of his memoirs, legendary musician and writer Jimmy Barnes 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. The promise of Working Class Boy was that to understand the man you needed to meet the boy, and now in Working Class Man that promise is fulfilled. 

In conversation with ABC Radio Canberra’s Genevieve Jacobs, Jimmy will talk about his new book Working Class Man, revealing how he 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.
