The Count Bishops

  
The Musicians  :  Johnny GUITAR

Biography after The BISHOPS

 

In March 1981, Gypie Mayo left Dr. Feelgood. Their management, in the form of a discreet advert in the Melody Maker, announced they wanted to recruit a new guitarist :  "Enthusiastic guitarist wanted for established R & B band". 
Sixty guitarists were auditioned. 

Johnny got the job. He stayed with the Feelgoods till December 1982.

Only one Dr. Feelgood album was released with Johnny"Fast Women & Slow Horses", which was released in October 1982 on CHISWICK Records.
There were also 2 singles, with non album tracks.

Johnny was joined in DR Feelgood by ex-Bishops' bassist, Pat McMullan, when The Big Figure and John B. Sparks left. 

Unfortunately this line up with 2 ex-musicians of The (COUNT) BISHOPS only lasted from April till December 1982.

Then, we find Johnny backing Bill Hurley, the great singer of The Inmates. He plays guitar on Bill's solo album, "Double Agent", in 1985. He also co-produced it.

Johnny also appears on Bill Hurley's "Angel To Memphis  (A Tribute To Elvis)" (on "Unchained Melody" which was recorded during the "Double Agent" sessions.

Recently, John was featured on a DR FEELGOOD compilation album called "Finely Tuned - The Guitar Album" which includes 5 tracks with his nice guitar playing (one of them is an unissued tracks from 1982: "Alimony").

Now, John lives in Orlando, Florida (U.S.A.) where he works as a financial consultant and stockbroker.

John still plays guitar with his band, MIDLIFE CRISIS: they play sixties stuff and blues. But "just for fun", as John says.
The band is : Johnny Guitar (guitar, vocals), Dave Darling (vocals, percussion), Glenn Weinman (bass, vocals), Steve Phillips (guitar, keyboards, vocals) and Gary Riccardi (drums).
