About

Johnny’s the oldest guitar player I know. By which I mean my oldest friend who plays guitar. He played it the summer we were co-counselors in Pokomoke Cabin on the Chesapeake and he wrote a song called The Camp Wright Blues and it made my head spin. I send Johnny all my countercultural lyrics and he makes them sound as if I dreamt them up in the mid-sixties when we met and people actually had important things to say and other people actually listened. Right on, bruddah.
