In 1977, Johnny O'Keefe talks about having a nervous breakdown in 1965 and being dropped from his television show on the Seven Network. O'Keefe embarked on a rock'n'rollĀ tour around the country, playing mostly regional and small venues. He says he recorded a cover of Hank Williams 'Be Careful of Stones that You Throw', the only country and western song O'KeefeĀ ever recorded, in answer to the industry critics who thought his tour represented a big comedown from being a TV star playing big stadiums in the capital cities.
