Yea, I saw Jimmy Barnes on a documentary about the recording of his soul album, while touring around the southern states (of America).

Oh, and here is the Chisel documentary (part 1 of 6):

Yes, but AFAIK, Chisel itself didn't. The story I heard at the time was that Chisel was just too weird for Americans. Their setlist was too varied and they couldn't be pigeonholed for any specific market but I wouldn't know if that's true or not.

... and came back with his tail between his legs again.

"Freight Train Heart" was the album he recorded over there with all the AOR guests on it (dudes from Journey etc). Meh.

Actually, I find it hard to feel anything but nonplussed by Jimmy Barnes. On his own, he's just this generic hard rock singer. The whole point of Chisel was that they had all these contrasts. They were fronted by this bogan but they had intelligent songs and occasional jazzy influences.

In the end, it looks like the world settled for having just the bogan, maybe they'd always preferred the bogan, but really... he's not that good on his own.

True; I could listen to Don Walker play for hours.. and Ian Moss! :D The band was certainly greater than the sum of the parts, eh!!! And as a live act they were unsurpassed, certainly while I was over there...

Agreed... reluctantly!! :mrgreen:

Were they what! :D

I just remembered... I don't think they were in that "Long Way To The Top" doco that the ABC put out some years ago.

Wonder what the hell that was all about..? An Oz rock history that doesn't mention Chisel?? :shock:

Yeah, I'm not really a fan either but I do like his early "shouty anthem" stuff. When he started to add pop-rock elements and then shove the soul man shtick down out throats I tuned out with a quickness.

I've seen a Smashing Pumpkins documentary, maybe it was a subset of some other documentary though. But he talks about getting signed straight away and the first venue they played (Which was a big club) and stuff. It's a weird story, story of a radio band
