The behind-the-scenes story of a rock 'n' roll legend. An elemental force present at the creation of Australian rock 'n' roll, Johnny O'Keefe converted incredible drive, a tremendous flair for showmanship and a comic spirit into status as this country's first rock star, and, two decades after his death, a national icon. Johnny was dead at 43 after 30 hit singles, 28 albums, and a succession of self-inflicted disasters: a near fatal car crash, a much publicized series of nervous breakdowns, bouts of alcoholism and drug addiction. His influence was immense; few in the world of popular music begrudged him the title the King of Australian Rock and Roll. Today Shout, Wild One, I'm Counting on You and Sing remain as indelible hallmarks of the early years of Australian rock 'n' roll. They were years of immense energy with The Wild One at the centre.
