Jeff Apter

I'm the author of more than 20 books. My work includes biographies of the Finn brothers, Johnny O’Keefe, the Bee Gees, Marc Hunter, ‘Shirley’ Strachan, Silverchair, John Farnham and Keith Urban. I've also ghostwritten for and with musicians, sportsmen, diplomats and soldiers of fortune. Most recently, I helped soccer star Tim Cahill update his memoir, Legacy.
I was the dramaturge for the Helpmann Award-nominated 2015 live production, A State of Grace: The Music of Jeff and Tim Buckley. I also spent four years on staff at Oz Rolling Stone. Over the years I've had the good fortune to interview such greats as Aretha Franklin, Robbie Robertson, the Rolling Stones, Helen Reddy, Mick Rock and Patti Smith, among others. Many of these articles can be found at the Rock's Back Pages website.
My new book, The Book of Daniel: From Silverchair to Dreams, is out in December through Allen & Unwin. It can be pre-ordered through Booktopia.
A smaller format edition of my bestselling 2017 biography of Angus Young, entitled High Voltage, is also due in late 2018, while a new, improved, Australia-only edition of my Jeff Buckley bio,
A Pure Drop, is out now. You can read about the book at The Guardian and A softcover edition of my John Farnham bio, Playing to Win, has also recently been published.
Here's a gallery of images charting where I've been and who I've met. Life's never dull, that's for sure.
