John first achieved notoriety with his eye-watering performance on Old Grey Whistle Test and subsequent hit single Really Free in 1977. A heady mix of blind ambition and rank incompetence was to keep this micro-star shining for almost two decades despite Otway's ability to turn any situation to his own disadvantage. His autobiography Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure outsold, by a factor of ten, all the records he had released since his hit, and now Otway is struggling to live up to this billing - selling out London Astoria for his 2000th gig in 1993, filling the Royal Albert Hall in 1998, and charting at number 9 with his 2002 single Bunsen Burner.
