Leah and Nik spoke to Jimmy Barnes about his new book

We are stoked that Jimmy Barnes is returning to New Zealand next year on his Working Class Man: An Evening of Stories and Songs National Tour.

His latest book, Working Class Man was released on October 23, which is the sequel to his previous book, Working Class Boy.

Nik and Leah caught up with Jimmy to chat about his new book and also talk about some of the highlights from his first book.

"I grew up and left poverty behind and became a rock and roll singer and you don't really realise that you're carry a lot of stuff from that in your adulthood."

A lot of the stuff I wrote in the first book really adversely affected me as an adult and basically that is what I'm writing about in the second book.
