Barnestorming Bali

Australian Rock Legend Jimmy Barnes Takes to the Skies in Bali.

(10/14/2002) Australian rock legend Jimmy Barnes and members of his family and band made a helicopters tour part of their early October visit to the island of Bali, courtesy of Bali Adventure Air Tours.

Between performances at the Hard Rock Hotel - Jimmy; his wife Jane; daughters Mahalia and Elly; daughter and backing-vocalist Eliza Jane; and nephew/guitarist Matthew Schlammerl, - all climbed aboard Bali Adventure's Robinson 44 Clipper Helicopters to fly over the spectacular Kintamani volcano, jungle ravines, and adjacent breathtaking rice terraces during a 45-minute air tour of paradise.

Jimmy Barnes first steps towards the pantheon of rock legends took place in the early 1970's with his group Cold Chisel followed by a distinguished solo career in the 1980's that included soundtrack work for U.S. director Ron Howard's film Gung Ho, and, later, for the movie The Lost Boys.

Impressed on his first trip to Bali, Jimmy said, "Jane and I love the tropics and the lifestyle here is just fantastic. The proximity to Australia and Thailand is another bonus."

Now that Jimmy and his family have discovered Bali, its very likely they'll soon be back for a return engagement.
