Johnny O'Keefe (born January 19 1935, Bondi Junction, New South Wales, Australia - died October 6 1978, Sydney, Australia) was an Australian Rock'n'Roll singer. Began his career in the mid to late 1950's when, together with American born entrepreneur Lee Gordon (2), he pioneered rock'n'roll in Australia. He earned the title of "The Wild One" from his frantic stage antics and his 1959 recording of "Shout" became an Australian rock'n'roll' national anthem.

Johnny O’Keefe is remembered as a leader, his unique style made him the star he was, and his recordings alone are testament to an outstanding career. I saw JO’k at Highpoint Shoping Centre(called Highpoint West back then) in Melbourne when working there as a teenager. I’m not sure when it was but may have been 1977. I remember him wearing his white suit and such a huge name to perform at a shopping centre.
Johnny O'Keefe became the first Australian pop star to chart. His breakthrough came with his third release, a song called "I'm the Wild On. This seminal Australian rock song was covered in 1987 by Iggy Pop as "Real Wild Child. Although radio stopped playing his new records, Johnny O'Keefe was always out there trying and built up a healthy management and touring company. He was still one of Australia's hardest working and best-paid entertainers. When he died on October 6, 1978, of a heart attack induced by an accidental overdose of prescribed drugs, Johnny O'Keefe was busy planning the expansion of his successful business and performing activities. 3000 people crammed into the Waverley, Sydney church and thousands more lined the streets to watch the funeral procession.
