Songwriting legend Jimmy Webb cannot wait to get back to Australia for his shows with Jimmy Barnes, David Campbell, Ian Moss, Kate Ceberano and Ed Kuepper. He says it is better than winning a Grammy.
“I think it is going to be a great night,” Jimmy Webb tells Noise11.com. “To be in Australia and he honoured by this calibre of musicians is better than any award I ever got. I won Grammy’s but it’s the people that matter. The most important thing is the people who regard you highly. They are the ones who give you the final award and it’s the only one that matters”.
Jimmy Webb will perform two shows only in Sydney and Melbourne with the Aussie legends in August. He says he is a big fan of Jimmy Barnes and a good friend of David Campbell.
“The ‘Working Class Man’ is the guy I have written a lot of my songs about as well,” says Jimmy about Jimmy. “It is going to be a love fest. I love the fact that David (Campbell)is going to be there. He has known my wife Lara for years. I haven’t met Kate Ceberano yet but I’ve heard some incredible vocalising from her. She has wide musical taste and can sing almost anything. I am looking forward to hearing her apply herself to some of these tunes.
The show will also feature guitar maestros Ian Moss and Ed Kuepper. “It is going to be groovy to have Ian Moss there to play Glen Campbell’s guitar pieces. I am looking forward very much to meeting Ed Kuepper as well,” says Jimmy.
Jimmy says he might even bring one of Glen Campbell’s guitars to Australia for Ian to play.
