Jimmy Barnes is working on a new album of his old songs with special guests to mark the 30th anniversary of his first solo record.
Barnes as spent the past week in Los Angeles recording with Neal Schon and Jonathan Cain of Journey, Keith Urban and Joe Bonamassa.
Cain wrote two songs of Jimmy’s number one album ‘For The Working Class Man’, ‘American Heartbreak’ and the title track. He also co-wrote ‘Driving Wheels, ‘Too Much Ain’t Enough Love’, ‘Last Frontier’, ‘I Wanna Get Started With You’, ‘I’m Still On Your Side’ and ‘Lessons In Love’ on Jimmy’s next record ‘Freight Train Heart’, again another number one album in Australia.
E Street Band guitarist, who wrote ‘Ride The Night Away’ on ‘For The Working Class Man’, recorded with Jimmy when he was in Sydney last month with Bruce Springsteen.
Barnes launched his solo career in January, 1984, just one month after the final Cold Chisel show at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on December 12, 1983.
His debut solo album ‘Bodyswerve’ was released on September 10, 1984. It contained three hit songs ‘No Second Prize’, ‘Promise Me You’ll Call’ and ‘Daylight’.
Barnes holds the records for the most number one albums of any artist in Australia. He has had nine number one solo albums and four number one albums with Cold Chisel.
