The Wild One.

Damian Johnstone
Fan of the original Rock era.

There have been a few books about our
J.O'K, however none as honest and well researched as this one.

It covers much of his early private life as well as the usual showbusiness angles.

Friends and family were the major sources for the material Damian used to sculpture into this book. This being the case, it could be said there will never be a more truthful account of Johnny's life.

Plenty of private collection photos and real human stories which show all sides of Australia's first King of Rock'n'Roll.

There are only a few copies left
and it will not be republished.

Don't miss out.


The Mayor's a Square

Shane Homan
Professor and expert n Australia Social life.

As a very respected academic, Shane has done an incredible amount of research to make sure this book is accountable to what actually went on in the early 'live music' scene in Sydney.

The book covers from the 40's 'dance' scene to the 80's 'pub' scene and shows clearly what the lawmakers did to make things, or stop things from happening.

The title comes from a statement Johnny O'Keefe made in the late 50's about the Mayor of Parramatta because they wouldn't let him run his rock'n'roll dance in the Town Hall.

Many officials in both USA, UK and Australia thought RnR was the 'devils' music, so did everything they could to keep it away from society.

An interesting read for anyone into the history of live Oz music.
