I first saw Johnny at the Bonney Theatre in Barmera SA. I carried a dollar's worth of bottles 2km into town and cashed them. I paid $100 to see him under the big top in Coffs Harbour NSW. Always been a fan, even when it wasn't cool, always will. This book is a great warts and all of a boy who became a true blue Aussie, greatly admired and a firm believer in true friendship.
This is the 2nd Farnham biography I have read. This one was a little light on Johns early life in Melbourne but more detailed on his relationship with Glenn Wheatley. Having read both, I now have a fuller picture of his life and career.
