Some of his hits include Wild One(1958), Shout and She’s My Baby In his twenty-year career, O'Keefe released over fifty singles, 50 EPs and 100 albums.
Often referred to by his initials "J.O.K." or by his nickname "The Wild One", O'Keefe was the first Australian rock 'n' roll performer to tour the United States, and the first Australian artist to make the local Top 40 charts and he had twenty-nine Top 40 hits in Australia between 1959 and 1974.

In August 1974 Johnny O'Keefe put together a package tour called "The Good Old Days of Rock'n'Roll" which featured many of his old friends. It premiered at St George Leagues Club in Sydney and continued successfully for the next four years. During these shows, Johnny performed all the hit songs that made me famous, and was again in constant demand.
