Jimmy Barnes (Australian rock singer-songwriter, frontman of Cold Chisel)
James Dixon Swan (born 28 April 1956), better known as Jimmy Barnes, is a Scottish-born Australian rock singer-songwriter. His career both as a solo performer and as the lead vocalist with the rock band Cold Chisel has made him one of the most popular and best-selling Australian music artists of all time. The combination of 14 Australian Top 40 albums for Cold Chisel and 13 charting solo albums, including nine No. 1s, gives Barnes the highest number of hit albums of any Australian artist. In 2015, Barnes copped a lot of criticism when he announced that he didn't appreciate hate groups using his music in their material.
