Join Rock And Roll Writers Festival director Leanne de Souza in-conversation with Jimmy Barnes - Official at The Old Museum to launch the first installment of his memoirs 'Working Class Boy'.

A household name, an Australian rock icon, the elder statesman of OzPubRock - there isn't an accolade or cliche that doesn't apply to Jimmy Barnes. But long before Cold Chisel and Barnesy, long before the tall tales of success and excess, there was the true story of James Dixon Swan - a working class boy whose family made the journey from Scotland to Australia in search of a better life.

'Working Class Boy' is a powerful reflection on a traumatic and violent childhood, which fuelled the excess and recklessness that would define, but almost destroy, the rock'n'roll legend. This is the story of how James Swan became Jimmy Barnes. It is a memoir burning with the frustration and frenetic energy of teenage sex, drugs, violence and ambition for more than what you have.

*Signed books available for sale and Jimmy will be available for pictures after the conversation. There will be no personalised signing of books. Jimmy will not be performing.
