Norman John "Normie"Rowe AM was the first and biggest male solo star of Australian pop music in the 1960's.
Normie's double-sided hit "Que Sera Ser"/ "Shakin' All Over"is cited as the top-selling Australian single of the 1960s and is still one of the biggest-selling Australia recordings of all time.
After producing his first record in 1965, he quickly rose to national fame, becoming Australia's King of Pop in 1968.
Normie was born in February 1947 and grew up in the northern suburbs of Melbourne attending Northcote High School.
His pop career was cut short when he was drafted for compulsory military service (National Service) in 1967. His time in Vietnam ended his pop career. Although he was never able to recapture the massive success he enjoyed at his peak, he remains a popular and much-loved entertainer to this day.
Normie is committed to helping people in the community via his association with many charity and community groups, but his major concern is for the welfare of kids. This has lead Normie to become a member of VARIETY CLUBS OF AUSTRALIA (twenty-one years), for which he is now a National Ambassador.
Normie is still a very dynamic performer playing his cabaret/concert shows across the length and breadth of Australia, and bringing his audience of devoted fans to standing ovations wherever he performs.
