JOHN OTWAY & THE BIG BAND
John Otway had to wait until 1977 and the rise of punk before his dream of fame and fortune would finally become a reality. Otway's sixth single, the half-spoken love song "Really Free" increased dramatically and reached number 27 in the UK Singles Chart.
Despite numerous attempts to get back into the charts, Otway would have to wait 25 years for his next taste of chart success. In the intervening years, Otway would become an actor; write an autobiography ("Cor Baby That’s Really Me: Rock and Roll’s Greatest Failure."); perform sold out shows at London’s Astoria and Royal Albert Hall; and write the nation’s seventh favourite lyric of all-time (beating Bob Dylan and Paul Simon in the process).
In 2012, to celebrate his 60th birthday, Otway produced his debut movie titled "Otway the Movie: The Story of Rock n Roll’s Greatest Failure." A screening for producers was held at London’s Leicester Square with the final scenes from the movie filmed on the red carpet and edited into the film. It was subsequently voted the 2nd best film of the year in a poll of its readers conducted by The Guardian newspaper.
