Rock and Roll's Greatest Failure: Otway the Movie (2013)

Documentary
Elton John, Richard Blackwood, Jonathan Ross
UK's cult legend John Otway returns to his old school to give a course on survival in the music industry. In the midst of the UK's '70s punk revolution and after a momentous TV appearance where five and a half million viewers watched him land painfully on his testicles, Otway was high in the charts. Too bad his next hit was 25 years later. John Otway's career is an educational, yet magical lesson in self-promoting - recruiting his fans for endless manipulative, over-the-top projects which, among others, garnered him status as The Nation's 7th Favourite Lyricist in a BBC poll, secured him a Top Ten Hit for his 50th birthday and a feature film for his 60th. Failure has its rewards. It's kept Otway in the spotlight for 35 years. —Steve Barker
