Johnny O’Keefe (John Michael O’Keefe19 January 1935 – 6 October 1978), was an Australian Rock and Roll singer whose career began in the 1950s.

He was best known for his hit song, “She’s My Baby“.

O’Keefe was known as “The Wild One” for his wild onstage antics, which often got him into trouble. He was arrested several times for disorderly conduct. Despite his bad boy image, O’Keefe was a talented and popular singer. He was the first Australian to have a No. 1 hit on the Australian charts with “She’s My Baby“.

O’Keefe continued to release hits throughout the 1960s, including “Shout!” and “The Real Thing“. He also hosted his own TV show, The Johnny O’Keefe Show, which was popular with teenagers.

In his twenty-year career, Johnny O’Keefe released over fifty singles, 50 EPs and 100 albums.

In the 1970s, O’Keefe’s career began to decline. He was arrested for drug possession and his TV show was cancelled. He attempted to make a comeback in the late 1970s, but it was not successful.

O’Keefe died of a heart attack in 1978, at the age of 43.
