He played piano and keyboard with the band from 1973 to 1983, when they disbanded. He has since continued to record and tour, both solo and with Tex, Don and Charlie, and worked as a songwriter for others. In 2009, he released his first book.

The book shines with its descriptive sense of place.

This remarkable memoir begins with Don Walker's early life in rural Australia and goes up to the late ’80s.

His return to Australia for "a personal matter", vaguely sketched in both books as a custody battle for his daughter, leads to his richest phase of songwriting.

Sasha Milenkovic was shot dead in the basement of the Blackmarket club in Chippendale on November 9th 1997," Don Walker writes in a typically terse introduction to another sheaf of songs. Two years prior, he, Felix Lyle and Tim Fitzpatrick had done my family a big favour. In Don Walker's lyrics the line between observation and invention remains obscured. His return to Australia for "a personal matter", vaguely sketched in both books as a custody battle for his daughter, leads to his richest phase of songwriting.

This extraordinary memoir begins with Don Walker's early life in rural Australia and goes up to the late '80s. In mesmerising prose, Walker evokes childhood and youth, wild times in the '70s, life on the road and in Kings Cross, music-making and much more. Shots is a stunningly original book, a set of word pictures - ''shots'' - that conjure up the lowlife and backroads of Australia. Don Walker is one of Australia's leading songwriters - first with Cold Chisel and now as a solo performer and with Tex, Don Charlie. This is his first book.
