The Music Podcast is back with a fresh new revamp... say hello to The Green Room with Neil Griffiths and its first guest, Aussie rock royalty Jimmy Barnes!

To celebrate today's release of his new solo album, My Criminal Record, Barnes invited host Neil Griffiths into his home studio in Sydney to talk about the new LP and how it came about. 

In the one-on-one chat, the revered frontman also discussed his past troubles with violence and drug abuse, coming out the other side and future plans with his band Cold Chisel.

"I remember no matter how smashed I was, I always managed to sing," Barnes said of his addictions. 

"One show, I think was in Melbourne, I got up and I went to sing and nothing came out. I'd gone too hard for too long and I had no power, no voice, no confidence left."
