For those who don’t know, Brian Mannix is a singer, songwriter, musician, actor, radio and television personality, author and thespian.
He is best remembered as the exuberant frontman of the Uncanny X Men, who achieved platinum and gold albums plus top 20 singles including 50 Years – written by Mannix – which made the national top five.
The versatile Mannix has turned his talents to the stage in highly successful musicals like We Will Rock You and Bad Boy Johnny.
Acting also called and Brian answered, with roles in television shows like Neighbours, Blue Heelers and The Flying Doctors plus the movies Chopper and Bogan Pride. A popular and regular panelist on Spicks and Specks plus appearances on Dancing with the Stars and The Apprentice reinforced Brian’s popularity with the viewing public.
The literary world welcomed Brian’s first book 50 Years and is bracing for his follow up, an audio book called Hell I Don’t Even Like Al Green.
For the last three years Brian has been one third of the popular Ruck ’n Roll podcast and now – like thousands of other Australians – he wants a podcast of his own.
“The difference,” he says, “is this one is really good.”
Initially a series of six, Life of Brian is proudly sponsored by Murcotts Driving Excellence
The podcast will feature a special guest interview starting with Wilbur Wilde, plus a combination of stories from the audio book and Brian’s life. There will be improvised live performances and many other surprises.
Like Brian’s real life, the podcast will be unpredictable and probably unprintable.
