From this point New Orleans - Johnny OKeefe With The Escorts - Live On The Gold Coast the late s, all O'Keefe's recordings came out on the Leedon label.

Boosted by his TV profile, O'Keefe's next two singles became two of the biggest and most enduring hits of his career. Many of the "bodgie" male and "widgie" female patron's arrived on motor bikes cycles.

During one talent quest teenager Ray Hoff won the event with his version of the Ronnie Self single 'Bopalena. Another night saw a crew cut disc jockey Bob Rodgers handing out records while being filmed for a documentary.

Leather jackets were banned in an effort to reduce fights mostly outside the premises, and New Orleans - Johnny OKeefe With The Escorts - Live On The Gold Coast patrons were caught fighting within the club, the two police officers John and Reg on duty and in uniform, would force the culprits to don boxing gloves and get into a boxing ring downstairs. Johnny Rebb wore a toupee and was escorted through the crowd to the bandstand accompanied by a bodyguard-manager.

JOK was more at ease with tough wild kids. Price had collapsed on stage a few songs before he was due to finish his performance. O'Keefe quickly jumped to the rescue as a semi conscious Price was being taken away leaving most of the audience bewildered. JOK then performed Price's number one hit 'Personality' giving the audience some value for money and cementing his star status.

Next morning a picture in the Sydney tabloid newspaper The Daily Telegraph showed O'Keefe accepting a piece of jewellery from the very appreciative Lloyd Price. The promoters were obviously even more happy as refunds would not have been necessary. His decision to try his luck in the USA was strongly opposed by his friend and mentor Lee Gordon but the ever-ambitious O'Keefe had already set his sights on breaking into the American market, and in L.

In February O'Keefe returned to the U. O'Keefe undertook a gruelling tour that visited 35 states, but he made little impact, although "She's My Baby" reputedly sold more thancopies in the USA and his next single "It's Too Late" briefly reached 1 in New Orleansbut the tour eventually fizzled out as O'Keefe exhausted his finances.

To cover his US failure he bought a bright red imported Plymouth Belvedere on hire purchase and began touring relentlessly up and down the east coast of Australia to pay off the car and replenish his finances, returning to Sydney every Saturday to present Six O'Clock Rock. JOK at one stage enjoyed low pressure in the car tyres as this made them squeal when turning corners. Johnny O'Keefe insisted on driving himself and this almost cost him his life.

About 20 kilometres north of Kempsey O'Keefe fell asleep at the wheel of the Plymouth and ploughed into a gravel truck. While the front of the large car bore the brunt of the very severe impact, all three were seriously injured. O'Keefe's face smashed into the steering wheel and he was thrown out of the car, landing six metres away in a paddock; Greenan's wife subsequently suffered a miscarriage.

O'Keefe suffered multiple lacerations, concussion and fractures to his head and face; he lost four teeth, and his hands were also badly lacerated.

A much repeated though possibly apocryphal story about the accident is attributed to his touring companion, singer Lonnie New Orleans - Johnny OKeefe With The Escorts - Live On The Gold Coast who was travelling behind O'Keefe in another car. Lee was the first to come on the scene of the accident, and according to the story he was obliged to quickly remove O'Keefe's 'stash' of marijuana from its hiding place in the hubcap of the Susi Und Strolch Seite 1 - Karlheinz Böhm - Susi Und Strolch Plymouth before police arrived at the scene.

This story may only be apocryphal as marijuana was still not illegal at the time and in Sydney's Strathfield was used as a decorative plant on the nature strip along The Avenue. O'Keefe was air-lifted back to Sydney for treatment, but about six weeks later, and against doctors' orders, he returned to work on Six O'Clock Rock. He subsequently had to undergo many gruelling operations [ citation needed ] to reconstruct his face, which left his appearance permanently changed.

By this time O'Keefe was reaching the limits of his physical and mental endurance, and in all probability he was suffering from the effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. After the second US tour collapsed, on impulse he flew to London, but he blacked out at the Park Lane Hotel and woke up three days later in St George's HospitalLondon, where he had been admitted, suffering from "nervous collapse".

By chance he was able Cançó De Taverna - Cobla Maravella Dtor. Lluís Ferrer* - Catalunya Canta make contact with Lee Gordon, who happened to be in London at the time, and with Gordon's help and that of O'Keefe's wife and his parents he was released from hospital and returned to Australia.

The show was a major success, but this only added to his already hectic workload and increased the pressure on him. In August he suffered another breakdown and spent two months in the psychiatric ward at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital in Sydney [ 29 ]beginning what was to become a repeating cycle of much-publicised breakdowns, hospitalisation and recovery. It was around this time that O'Keefe finally parted ways with his faithful backing Love=Blood - Apparent Symmetry - Forest Fog (File, Album) The Dee Jays, as he devoted more and more time to TV which was in the shocking era of all major New Orleans - Johnny OKeefe With The Escorts - Live On The Gold Coast miming songs at outdoor locations such at Manly Beach's Fairy Bower in Live performances began to taper off.

During this period he met and became good friends with Alan Dale[13] also an aspiring singer, who was then employed at the O'Keefe's furniture business.

During these appearances, O'Keefe would sing his specialty, Johnny Ray's "Cry", while wearing a pair of trick glasses which would squirt water over the audience.

O'Keefe became a regular singer with the Merzi quintet and performed with them every Sunday at the charity shows New Orleans - Johnny OKeefe With The Escorts - Live On The Gold Coast performed at the Bondi Auditorium.

This was the band that supported a tour by Little Richard and his band. Casch's contribution to O'Keefe's Leere Augen - Aktion X - Das Was Bleibt (Demos), both live and on record, was considerable.

He was born in Ambon ingrew up in Aceh and Jakartabegan playing guitar New Orleans - Johnny OKeefe With The Escorts - Live On The Gold Coast an early age, and became a dedicated jazz musician.

He was introduced to O'Keefe by Keith Williams, whom he had known from a jazz trio in which they played. At their first meeting O'Keefe played Casch a selection of rock'n'roll records and asked him to imitate the guitar playing, which he was easily able to do.

Many of these outfits were made for him by Sydney 'showbiz' costumier Len Tayloralthough one famous red suit trimmed with leopard-print velvet cuffs and lapels now in the collection of the Powerhouse MuseumSydney was reputedly made by his mother Thelma.

At the time Casch joined the band, they were promoting their own dances at local venues such as the Balmain Workingmen's Institute and Stone's Cabaret. The enterprising O'Keefe was involved in every aspect of the group's career including hiring the halls, placing ads in the local newspapers and putting up posters.
