It was 1958 at St Peter’s Lutheran Church in Adelaide’s northern suburb of Elizabeth.

It was his first performance, miming to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s ‘All Shook Up’.

“With a cardboard guitar around my neck wearing my dad’s white sports jacket which draped down to my knees, and the record player broke down and I kept on singing it by myself.

“I got a few claps, and that was it.”
