turned 50 recently, and threw a large party. I mention this here because Dallas Crane
were supposedly there, with Dave providing some of the entertainment.
Everything below is blatantly ripped off of The Age
"Barnesy's big bash
"Party of the decade!" declared some who weren't there. "Mick Jagger
and David Bowie
sang!" the tabloids claimed, wrongly. But Barnesy's 50th birthday bash was a beauty, say the lucky guests.
Sam Neill, Neil Finn
, golfer Peter Lonard, Molly Meldrum, Michael Gudinski, Diesel
, Jade Macrae
, You Am I
's Tim Rogers
and Davey Lane
, and members of Dallas Crane
were among those invited for Moet champagne and a seafood buffet at Baan Banyan resort in Hua Hin, three hours south of Bangkok.The 12th Man
, Billy Birmingham, was MC and Finn, Rogers, Dave Larkin
and Barnesy's daughter Elly May performed with a house band comprising other members of the Barnes clan, with Lane and Diesel on guitars. Sydney drag queens Mogadonna and Amelia Airhead and traditional Thai dancers also performed. Happy birthday, Barnesy, glad you made it."
