Johnny O'Keefe Page
The SHOUT Tribute Page new
Tues Feb 6, 2001
Because of the sudden
increase of interest in Johnny O'Keefe,
I thought I would update the Shout tribute page to cater for the request
of information about the 1986 Mini-Series on
more information click here.
This is Johnny O'Keefe?
As you may or may not
know, this is the face of Johnny O'Keefe, as brilliantly played by 27 year
old David Campbell (son of hard rocker Jimmy Barnes) In the smash hit
musical "SHOUT: The story of the wild

The Picture Gallery
The J.O'K Picture
Gallery is finally back into shape. You will notice that ALL Pictures
should be working fine. As well as a few new additions. Keep logging
onto the site for more picture updates. Also, once again, if you have anything
to add to the picture gallery or anything else at that matter your
contributions will be extremely grateful.
The J.O'K Statue
While doing my usual Johnny O'Keefe Web Surf the other day I
came across a site of the sculptor who is responsible for the Johnny
O'Keefe Statue. Here you will find a few pics of the J.O'K
statue during its last stages of being complete.

Just One little thing to
get off my chest.
During the last 12 months there has been a huge increase of interest in
the great J.O'K. Even though this is a great thing it has given me cause
to speak up about something I feel needs to be rectified.
As you may or may
not be aware the UnOfficial Johnny O'Keefe page is run and maintained by
only one person. I do the graphics, the text, everything you see here.
It's a lot of hard work when you are only learning.
The problem is, I know of a couple of new J.O'K sites who are both using
graphics that I created and / or information that I have researched and
painstakingly typed up, without a hint of credit and no mention of this
you download ANYTHING from THIS SITE with the Intention of using it on
another site, please give credit where credit is due.
I have been doing
this page for well over 5 years and I am not prepared to let anybody use
my material unethically, when I've worked so hard to get
this site of the ground. All I'm asking, If you use these clips or any
graphics from this site then please acknowledge
the fact that you got them from here..
Thank you. - Brendan

NOTE: These clips
are for educational and private non-profit use. And you can find
them under the multimedia page.

Damian's Johnstone's wonderful book
Wild One: The life and times of Johnny
Let me say that everything that has been said about this book is true.
This is the most unbiased, factual non-fairy
tale story about Johnny O'Keefe
ever written. The book is both an easy and enjoyable read. I truly
recommend this book to all Johnny O'Keefe
fans or fans of Australian Rock 'n' Roll.
For the first time you
we get a better understanding of the fast paced life that was Johnny O'Keefe,
in which his early death in
1978 seemed the only way to slow him down. With
stories from people who where closed to him. including family, friends,
band members and fellow musician's, you wish
the book at 352 pages would never end. As a matter of fact, I'm
reading it again... Good Work Damian....!!!
In stores February
Wild One" is On It's Way!!!

For those kept under a rock for the last 15 years, Damian is
considered a god by both myself and readers of the Melbourne publication
"Big Beat Of The Fifties". His work also spans out to
other fan magazines as well as ABC radio specials and community radio.
His J.O'K related material of the past was nothing less than
great. Therefore, Damian Johnstone's' "The
Wild One: The life and times of Johnny
O'Keefe" will not be just a good read, but a
