#122

Too much sax?


#123

Occasionally, yes (e.g. Saturday Night - a perfectly good tune ruined by it).

Moreso his screaming… When he decides to sing properly (which he did at times with Chisel, never in his solo career), he’s manageable.


#124

The Moss vocal songs are their best work. By a mile.


#125

I cant think of a single Cold Chisel song that wouldnt have sounded better with Moss, as opposed to Barnes, singing it.


#126

Agreed.


#127

You Got Nothin’ I Want and Goodbye Astrid come to mind.

Also, 35 year-old songs less popular than when they were released shock.


#128

I reckon theres still a fair argument for both of those songs for Moss over Barnes, but I can see the other side of it too


#129

They’d be different songs and I don’t think better at all.
Otherwise, you know, Mr Moss would probably have had more than Telephone Booth and Tucker’s Daughter.
He was pretty bland on his own.


#130

to be fair I always considered Barnes pretty bland on his own, despite having greater commercial success as a solo artist than moss

but I get what youre saying wim


#131

IF:

Jimmy Barnes wasn’t the lead singer of Cold Chisel…

THEN:

“Working Class Man” would have shifted 122 units.


#132

Nah.
I’d Die To Be With You Tonight was top ten, maybe top five?

That album does make me laugh, though.
You’ve Got Nothin’ I Want!
Oh, wait.
Yes you do. You’ve got lots that I want.
How do you feel about a US style country rock album?


#133

I long ago went past the point of never wanting to hear Khe San ever again, … but before it became a pain, there’s no argument it was a good piece of songwriting, … and the thought of 80k of the crowd at the G singing along with it is something to anticipate, … and u just know they will play it.

Then I hope to never hear it again.


#134

That brings us to the next question. What wil their playlist be ?
Khe sanh , Driving wheels ( Was a solo hit ,not Chisels , but who cares ? ), Cheap Wine, Flame trees , Choir Girl and maybe You got nothing i want ? ?


#135

I love Chisel. East is an amazing album. Back then Jimmy could genuinely sing. Mossy was good but only as a counterpoint to Barnsey. Their greatest moments are when Jimmy was up front.


#136

Alternative entertainment would be instead of the car parade for ex-players they should shoot them out of a cannon.


#137

I feel tribute act Gold Chisel do a much better job than the original band themselves. Shame on you AFL, a golden opportunity missed.


#138

well since this is jimmy barnes, and not chisel, i reckon what youll find is that hell do a whole load of ■■■■ covers of classic rock songs and close with working class man.


#139

Can we finally put Mike Brady in the canon.

I’d be happy to never hear up there Cazaly again.

Ditto holy grail.


#140

Is Craig Willis still the announcer? Him to.

“…AND NOW!”


#141

ding ding ding, we have a winner!
