THE AUSTRALIAN MUSIC MUSEUM PROJECT
In July 2017 Australian rock’n’roll will be 60 years old. It was born when Johnny O’Keefe released The Wild One on 5th July 1958. AMMP is pushing for a national music museum by 2018 with exclusive stories, rare film clips, unseen photographs and a petition.
There have been many calls for an “Australian music Hall of Fame”
(Ian ‘Molly’ Meldrum) or a “contemporary music centre incorporating a
Hall of Fame “(Music Victoria CEO Patrick Donovan). AMMP has been set up to help restart the discussion. It even offers music fans the chance to create a digital plaque like this one for Skyhooks’ Shirley Strachan.
AMMP is the work of former music editor, journalist and author Jessica Adams, who started the campaign for a Melbourne lane way honouring Chrissy Amphlett after she interviewed her for Time Out Melbourne at the request of her friend, editor and author Jenny Valentish.
AMMP is supported by Charley Drayton (Cold Chisel, Divinyls), Rick Grossman (Hoodoo Gurus, Divinyls), Reg Mombassa (Dog Trumpet, Mental As Anything), Midnight Oil, Patricia Amphlett (Little Pattie, also Chrissy’s cousin) and Amphlett’s agent and friend Fran Moore.
