147 pages including b/w illustrations. Australia entered the world of Rock and Roll in the early 1950s with audacious abandonment and turbulent enthusiasm. The pulsating rhythm set young teenagers screaming and lying in the aisles, it forced local talent agents and entrepreneurs to search for local talent, and helped put the infant record industry on its feet. But the Rock Era also introduced Australia to the warped and objectionable side of showbusiness: unkempt personalities who writhed on stage to promote sex adoration, the animalistic orgies and debauchery behind the scenes, and the gang warfare between groups of fans. Even today, there exist some Rock ‘n’ Roll stars who fear blackmail and revelation of the licentious behaviour in this era. Ken Taylor, then working for Festival Records, was the man who dreamt, fought for and nurtured the Rock movement in this country. He tells of his discovery of Johnny O'Keefe, Col Joye, Dig Richards, Noeline Batley and many other famous singers and groups. This is the story of his survival against threats of murder and blackmail, the disclosures of the feuds - and loves - between the ‘stars’ of the era, the exposure of the tawdry, rough world of the pop idols. Only now can the truth be told.
