Jimmy Barnes Opens Up About His Shocking Childhood

Legendary Cold Chisel singer Jimmy Barnes is equally as famous for his wild antics as he is for belting out classics such as Khe Sanh and Working Class Man.

Over the years Barnesy built up a reputation as a hard drinking, womanizing rock star, before eventually realizing he needed to change his ways or face some serious consequences.

In his new memoir 'Working Class Boy' Jimmy recounts his early years in Glasgow before moving to Australia with his dysfunctional family, fighting and drinking as they go.

Watch above as Jimmy, who at the height of his fame would drink a bottle of vodka on stage, reveals to Jonesy & Amanda just how far back his problems with alcohol actually began.

And below, set aside some time as Jimmy goes in-depth with the guys discussing his troubled, but at times hilarious childhood in an emotional and revealing chat.
