Chad Morgan movie – I’M NOT DEAD YET – opens at Sydney Film Festival

The new Chad Morgan movie – I’M NOT DEAD YET – opens at the Sydney Film Festival on Tuesday June 14.

Chad Morgan has lost count of the number of times he’s been reported dead (hence the title), but the politically-incorrect country singer with the donkey grin is very much alive. ‘The Sheik of Scrubby Creek’ is still on the road almost 60 years after kicking off his career on Australia’s Amateur Hour. Chad’s life is the stuff of legends – his rapid rise to the top, womanising, heavy drinking – and his story, narrated by Tex Perkins, is told with just the right mix of rollicking style and genuine respect.

Janine Hosking of iKandy Films produced and directed the documentary.

Tex Perkins does the voiceover. I was lucky enough to spend some time on the road with Chad doing stills for the production. I was on set when Chad and Tex sang The Shotgun Wedding.

  1. funnily enough the Johnnys jammed with Chad in his kitchen back in the 80’s but they got chased out by his wife as they got him pissed when he was supposed to be off the grog, they played the day marty robbins died for him

  2. I met Chad in Ouze, Tasmania about 30 years ago. I was hoping to get a copy of the CD – Chad Morgan Movie – I’M NOT DEAD YET. Can you tell me where I can buy a Copy PLEASEEEEE.
    Please wish Chad and his wife the best from me, he has given many of us a lot of fun and pleasure over the years.
    God Bless You Old Fella
    Kindest Regards
