Rock And Roll's Greatest Failure: The Otway Movie Trailer


John Otway is largely regarded as one of the most unlikely musicians to have ever managed to achieve success (albeit only briefly) after Polydor Records signed him following his stunt on the BBC's 'Old Grey Whistle Test' music show.

It was 1977 and everyone was looking for some fresh new punk singer to smash the music industry - only as it turns out, Otway wasn't really it.
