Barnsey thrills Tim and Stephanie

TIM Draper had a "gut feeling'' that he was going to win a Morning Bulletin competition to meet and watch Jimmy Barnes perform in Rockhampton.

"I had a slight feeling in my stomach that I might win. I was surprised and happy when I did,'' he said.

Mr Draper, a self-confessed Barnsey fan, won a double ticket to the show at the Great Western on Wednesday night.

He took his daughter Stephanie along and together they got to chat with Barnsey for a few minutes before being treated to his high-energy show.

Mr Draper had put just two entries in to the competition and it was the second time he had seen Barnsey perform.

"It was an excellent night. He was very easy to talk to and very welcoming.

"I love his music. He's just got so much energy. He came back for two or three encores.''

Mr Draper said this wasn't the first time he had had a feeling about winning.

He said years ago he dreamt about winning lotto numbers, but could only remember three of them when he woke.

"Those three (numbers) came up. If I had only remembered them, who knows what would have happened.
