John Farnham 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki

Farnham married Jillian Billman, a dancer he met when performing the stage musical Charlie Girl, on 11 April 1973. They have two sons, Robert and James. Farnham is a supporter of the North Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League.

He lives on a farm near Bendigo.

After years of performing at high-volume concerts, Farnham has tinnitus and hearing loss, and wears hearing aids.

In 2019, Farnham cancelled an Australian tour due to a severe kidney infection and dehydration. He subsequently gave up a lifetime habit of smoking, and reduced his alcohol intake.

On 23 August 2022, Farnham released a statement that he was to undergo immediate surgery after being diagnosed with cancer.

In this statement, he said “cancer diagnosis is something that so many people face every single day, and countless others have walked this path before me.”

The same day, he underwent a nearly twelve-hour surgery to remove a tumour in his mouth, including jaw reconstruction. He was transferred to an intensive care unit, in a stable condition.

It was later announced that the tumour had been successfully removed.

John Peter Farnham, formerly billed as Johnny Farnham is an English-born Australian pop singer. He was a teen pop idol from 1964–1979, and since then he has forged a career as an adult contemporary singer.

His career has mostly been as a solo artist but he replaced Glenn Shorrock as lead singer of Little River Band during 1982–1985. In September 1986 his solo single, “You’re The Voice” peaked at No. 1 on the Australian singles charts.

The associated album, Whispering Jack, held the No. 1 position for a total of 25 weeks, and is the highest-selling album in Australian history. Both the single and the album had Top Ten success internationally including No. 1 in Sweden.

Domestically he has remained one of Australia’s best-known performers with a career spanning over 40 years, and he is the only Australian artist to have a number one record in five consecutive decades with singles: “Sadie (The Cleaning Lady)” in 1967, “Raindrops Keep Fallin’ On My Head” in 1969, and “Age Of Reason” in 1988; and albums: Age Of Reason, Chain Reaction in 1990, Then Again… in 1993, Anthology 1: Greatest Hits 1986-1997 in 1997, 33⅓ in 2000 and The Last Time in 2002.

Farnham has been recognised by honours and awards including 1987 Australian of the Year, 1996 Order of Australia, and 19 Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) Awards including his 2003 induction into the ARIA Hall of Fame.
