Sascha Alexander Gersak,
Based on Barnes' memoir of the same name, this documentary tells the story of his childhood survival in the slums of Glasgow, immigration to Australia, and how he became the lead singer of Cold Chisel.
An intimate portrait of Paul Kelly, Australia's foremost singer-songwriter. In a career spanning more than thirty years he has documented the history of our country, described its landscapes and cities, and captured the lives and loves of its citizens. Kelly has written over 350 songs, penned lyrics for many other singers, co-authored songs and written for film. But like all great artists Paul Kelly is both candid and reserved. He has lived in the public eye but has remained an enigma.Written by
Excellent - Great insight into the sometimes tortuous soul of a creative literary genius who could have so easily excelled at law or literacy but filled with passion for loving and living hard - he focused on songwriting. The personal battles and relationships with women and indigenous connections provided great subject matter for his songs. Insights into his references/inspiration from the bible and literacy leaders like Shakespeare surprised my children. Probably more Melbourne than Sydney in his influence he reflects our Australian passions for AFL and family times. HIs music remains timeless ( with younger kids ) and his words still resonate with the 50 somethings. Such is his talent as a writer. A great review of the art of songwriting. So enjoyable for my younger nieces/nephews who had not grown up with his music - well done ! Well worth watching again and again :)
Time to find my Paul Kelly vinyls !
