Jimmy Barnes - musician
Ladies and Gentlemen! And John Hay! It's Living Legend Time! Tonight, the house is rockin' larger than life and considerably more dangerous, a Great Australian, the veritable embodiment of all things rock n' roll, an artist with more hit albums than any other Australian, a survivor, reviver, a testifier, family man, Working Class Man, all class hero ... and a good friend. We are lucky to have him here in The Dayglo, and lucky to know him, generous, funny and a consummate entertainer. Here he is, courtesy of Two Paddocks Virtual Airways (So cheap, we did away with the planes). First Class only for a first class bloke ... A big Dayglo hand if you please for the wonderful ... Mr ... Jimmy Barnes!

Footnote from the Dayglo Proprietor -- Jimmy's career, his astounding output, his seemingly inexhaustible energy and commitment, his indestructible capacity for touring, his massive voice, his utter dedication to his craft, the loyalty of his legions of fans, his fabulous wife Jane, the amazing musicianship of his children ... and so much more ... we can do no justice to any of it, and anyway you probably know it anyway ... but if you don't by some remote chance , google Jimmy.
