For the first time Bernard, Darren, Ian, John and Jonathan look back and tell their whole story – from childhood to their final farewell.
They are five ordinary Aussie blokes who produced far from ordinary songs, many becoming the soundtrack for a generation. Their astonishing 22-year career saw them achieve 5 ARIA number one albums, 18 ARIA awards, 3 APRA awards and sales of over 2.5 million albums in Australia.
You know the lyrics and the music. Now, get to know them.
For the first time ever, this tight-knit, very private group has teamed up with respected journalist Dino Scatena to tell their story. They, along with their support team, family and mates open up to reveal how they all came to music, their influences, the early years of the band, their slow rise to music dominance and the reasons behind their break-up.
Taking us from their high school days in the mid 1980s to their final farewell concert on the Riverstage in their home town, POWDERFINGER: Footprints includes exclusive access to hundreds of never-before seen pictures from their private collections.
Explore the friendships and frictions, the fun times, the hard times and all their rock and roll misadventures, this is a must-have chronicle of Australia’s most beloved band.
Dino Scatena has known and reported on the members of Powderfinger since the 1990s. As part of the research for Footprints he travelled with the band on their farewell ‘Sunsets’ tour.
