Jimmy Barnes is famous for living like he sings – at full throttle. Once known as one of the biggest ratbags of Australian rock ’n’ roll, he’s now regarded as music royalty. But it hasn’t been an easy journey.
Jimmy’s battles with drugs and alcohol are well known. Less known is the story of the woman and family who stood behind him during the struggle.
Jane Barnes grew up in a very different world to Jimmy’s. She spent her early years in the warm embrace of a traditional family compound in Thailand and brought her unique values to their marriage.
This is a modern Australian love story about the courage to face one’s demons, and transformation through the support of an extended, blended family.
