Johnny Devlin

Johnny Devlin, born John Lockett Devlin (11 May 1938), was an influential early New Zealand-born rock musician, sometimes called "New Zealand's answer to Elvis Presley".

His cover of Lloyd Price's "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" in 1958 went number one in New Zealand, with sales of more than 100,000, launching a long-term career. He spent much of his time in Australia from 1959 - touring in support of The Everly Brothers in that year, and often appearing on Australian television shows such as Bandstand and Six O'Clock Rock and The Go!! Show. In 1964 he toured Australia as a support act for The Beatles.
