Move over Nollsy, Barnesy still top of best Aussie musos

MOVE over Shannon Noll. Jimmy Barnes is still a big hit when it comes to favourite Australian singers.

While Nollsy hasn't got as many years, albums, songs as Jimmy, he's spunky looks and his country boy flavour has been a hit with music lovers since he appeared on Australian Idol and coming runner-up in 2003.

Meanwhile, old favourites - Jimmy Barnes, John Farnham, Midnight Oil, INXS - are still making the list for The Bulletin reader's.

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Earlier this week, The Bulletin asked readers on Facebook who their favourite Australian singer is.

Local musos Busby Marou and Le Mont were mentioned, but Barnesy was one that was mentioned a few times.

Squire Trevor Hilcher says Jimmy Barnes, but at the moment Rocky band Le Mont are making some awesome music.

Trixie Dee says there are so many good Aussie singers.
