DAVID Camp­bell’s on an all-time high. Not only is Camp­bell, 35, cel­e­brat­ing his re­cent mar­riage to Bri­tish ac­tor Lisa He­witt, he’s had a great year in his ca­reer.

He’s proud of his al­bum which fea­tures a duet with his dad, Aussie rock icon Jimmy Barnes. And Camp­bell’s ex­cited about the prospect of hit­ting the stage with Barnes for an­other duet, this time at tonight’s

Camp­bell was raised by his ma­ter­nal grand­mother and, un­til the age of 10, was told she was his mother. His ‘‘sis­ter’’ was his birth mother. Camp­bell was in his teens when he dis­cov­ered Barnes was his fa­ther.

Camp­bell and Barnes might have missed out on a con­ven­tional fa­ther-son re­la­tion­ship, but in re­cent years have be­come great mates.

‘‘We’ve got­ten closer and closer,’’ Camp­bell says. ‘‘There is a chem­istry when we per­form to­gether. I’m not a fan of singing with other peo­ple, but there’s this ge­netic thing that’s com­fort­ing. There are few oth­ers I could sing with and have that sense of aban­don. Dad is one of the best singers in the coun­try, for cry­ing out loud.’’
