Legends of Aus rock to make Muster the best party in town

JIMMY Barnes has been there and back.

And now he is going to rock the Gympie Muster once again.

Barnesy has tasted glory as the most successful Australian rock and roll singer.

And as lead singer for Cold Chisel, he fronted Australia's (arguably) most successful rock band.

Within a month of Cold Chisel finishing, Barnesy was on the road with a new band (1984) and soon released his first solo album, Bodyswerve, and it entered the charts at number one.

Since then, Jimmy has been a staple on Australian radio with mega hits such as Working Class Man, Driving Wheels, Good Times (with INXS) and many more.

Also joining the Muster line-up this year will be Russell Morris, who is enjoying a major resurgence in his career with his critically acclaimed, top ten ARIA album, Sharkmouth, a blues album which was described by The Australian as "a powerful album steeped in Australian history".

Delivering a couple of blues inspired sets will be legendary singer/songwriter, Don Walker.

From the earliest days Don was the creative songwriting force for Cold Chisel.

Other names to be announced this week are Muster favourites Jasmine Rae, and Travis Collins as well as respected singer songwriter Kim Cheshire, sassy blues singer and guitarist, Cass Eager, and rockin' country outfit, The Viper Creek Band.
