Mon Jan 8, 2001
After the tons of E-mails regarding J.O'K memorabilia etc. I have decided to create a
web page to cater for the ever growing number of queries concerning this memorabilia.
Whether to sell items or seek information regarding them, this new addition to the Johnny
O'keefe Page should be helpful to fans.
Classifieds / Noticeboard can be found here.

It has finally arrived. The highly
anticipated Stage Show about the The Wild One Johnny O'keefe has premiered with positive
reviews. This fantastic new multi-million dollar show chronicles
his life and times, using 36 performers and a 14-piece orchestra to bring Australia's
original and legendary Wild One back to the stage.
Comments / Reviews can be found here.
From Jeremy Norton
Young Australian Of The Year in 1999, David Campbell gets
the job of playing O'Keefe. A pretty daunting task, but David should be well-prepared.
Having returned from New York and a lead role in Stephen Sondheim's Saturday Night,
he has just finished playing the lead in Melbourne's production of Guys And Dolls.
He will be sure to set himself a high standard if his father, legendary rocker Jimmy
Barnes, is anywhere in the audience.
Directed by Richard Wherrett with choreography by Ross Coleman, Shout!
features all the smash hits, from The Wild One and She's My Baby to later
hits like So Tough. And Shout! of course.

updated at an alarming rate. Any suggestions etc, or if you have something to add to the

A Few Little Things:
Nov 5th 1999
During the past few months you may have wondered why there hasn't been much added to the
page. This is mainly because it is exam time for myself and I am currently in the last
closing stages of the end of my University year. Therefore, after the 25th of November,
The J.O'K page will be number one on the list of things to do.
Hard Drive Crash
I know it sounds like an excuse but it is the truth,
Recent;y My PC Died, and with it, Most of my Mail backup files of messages that you, the
Fans wrote to me. I did read most of them, but I couldn't reply to some of them straight
away. And because of this, I have lost a few of your e-mail addresses. If you are suprised
I didn't receive your message this could be why. If you Have any questions on
anything regarding this page let me know.
Ofcourse I am always looking for other fans who want
to contribute to the site. E-mail Me 8-)
Obtw: Like I said I did read some messages and I
some people asked questions on the
Q) Wanting Pictures of

Q) Wanting to contribute
to the site:
A) By All Means Send it all in anything is welcome, anything... If
you have a story to tell, articles, we'll put it on here, and if you think there's no
place to put it, we'll make something up.
Letter to Festival Records
Aug 24th 1999
Recently I wrote a
letter to festival records (J.O'K's Record Company) introducing myself and the J.O'K page.
The main reason for this was to let Festival records know that we are here, and still
going strong after 4 1/2 years. As well as a way to get any useful information from them,
so us, the fans could keep up with what's happening. My first reply was from
Warren Fahey, who looks after the J.O'K material at Festival. In which he wrote:
"....We have lots happening with
Johnny's music this year
including an airline
which will have a plane named
after him, a portrait being hung in the
national portrait gallery, a
double cd of his rock and roll material and loads more...."
A few days later, festival returned another message
to me, this time by Zach Sarich, who stated:
"... I believe that somewhere in our plans here at Festival
there are plans to
do a website of our own on Johnny but that may be some time down the track..."
So 1999 could still be a good year
for J.O'K fans, lets hope that there is another J.O'K website to add to the slowly growing
number that is available.
Trying, Trying, Trying
Aug 3rd 1999
I'm in the process of adding a sound gallery to the page, this will house
recorded interviews and song samples for download. The only problem at this stage is
trying to get permission to do so. I know i can just put them on there, but hey, it would
look nice is i can say "used with permission" -right?.
Let's see how we go.
