When I was 14 I didn't have a clue what Khe Sanh was, where it was or what the hell happened there. All I knew was that Jimmy Barnes was rockin' and Cold Chisel were, as they say "the shit". We were just ignorant school girls who sang it loud without a clue that it was about vietnam war veterans. We didn't even learn anything about the vietnam war at school. So they were ahead of their time. A bit like Redgum with I was Only 19. And you know what. Khe Sanh is still one of the songs I can listen to every time on the Ipod without fast forwarding through it. Now Jimmy's had to give up the bottle of vodka on stage and had recent heart surgery. But he's still rockin'
