An international supergroup made up of Jimmy Barnes (Cold Chisel), Slim Jim Phantom (The Stray Cats), Jools Holland (Squeeze/UK Squeeze), Chris Cheney (The Living End) and Kevin Shirley (legendary producer for Joe Bonamassa, Beth Hart, Aerosmith, Metallica and many others) has just released their first glimpse of their debut, self-titled album, The Barnestormers by way of a great clip for first single, Johnny’s Gone. It features the comic book artwork of Vince Ray brought to cartoon life by Italian, Marco Pavone.
Borne out of the down-time during the Covid-19 pandemic, The Barnestormers have taken the Don Walker-penned song and made it into a newborn rockabilly classic.
The album will be released on Friday, May 26th and is available for pre-order here.
