Frankie J. Holden OAM (born Peter Brian; 18 December 1952) , also known as Frank Holden, is a singer, actor and TV presenter. During the mid 1970s Holden was the frontman for the Australian retro-rock band Ol' 55, which also included Wilbur Wilde and Jimmy Manzie. The group released their debut studio album 'Take It Greasy', in May 1976 which peaked at #3 on the Australian Kent Music Report Albums Chart, eventually achieving triple platinum status and staying in the Top 50 for 39 weeks. In 1977 Holden left the band to start a solo career. His first record release was ''My Right of Way'', which was used as the theme for the Australian movie The FJ Holden. The single failed to chart everywhere except Adelaide where it peaked at #34. In 1980 he released ''Boomerang'' on the Seven label. In the 80s he quit the music scene and embarked on an acting career. In the early 2000s, Holden re-emerged on the music scene with the Ol' Skydaddies, a band featuring members from Ol' 55, Daddy Cool and Skyhooks.
