Rock veteran Otway dubbed himself rock'n'roll's greatest failure after many unsuccessful attempts to produce a second hit single to follow his 1977 classic (Cor Baby, That's) Really Free with Wild Willy Barrett.

25 years later, he was back on Top ofThe Pops with the wonderful disco pastiche, 'Bunsen Burner' and back in the charts as a birthday present from his adoring and patient fans.

But that, of course, was not enough.

A couple of years ago John realised that live footage from the many concerts over the years, plus many TV appearances - and a failed world tour attempt - would make an entertaining documentary film. So he made one. Initially expecting a couple of humble screenings for fans, the film premiered at the Odeon, Leicester Square, was shown at Cannes - and at prestigious UK film Festivals

Expect madcap mayhem and some scintillating stunts from a man old enough to know better..and also to be surprised at just what a showman and musician really lies underneath the tomfoolery.

Great to see John again, the classics (including the ‘hits’), some well-crafted new songs and like seeing an old friend on top form; had to give him a hug
