REVIEW: Johnny O’Keefe is the once and future king of Australian rock & roll. It wasn’t just that he was the first Australian rock & roll star to release a record or the first to chart a single, the performer with the most Top 40 hits in the history of Australian rock & roll or the first to go to America-although he can claim all those achievements. Johnny O’Keefe (JO’K) was the first Australian to completely embody what it is to be a rock & roll star.
Johnny O’Keefe-The Wild One – “The Documentary” was specially released to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the release of the “The Wild One” and to commemorate the 30th Anniversary of his untimely passing. Johnny O’Keefe’s life and achievements are celebrated via candid interviews with his immediate family, friends and entertainment personalities. Also featured are performances of 17 of his hits including “Shout (Parts 1 & 2)”, “The Wild One (Real Wild Child)”, “I’m Counting On You”, “Mockingbird”, “So Tough” and more.
