John's Story

  • John is a life long musician from Liverpool UK. From the golden age of Merseybeat to todays memories of yesteryear. Proud to be Australian. 


  • A feature of the local Aussie music scene since the sixties. John continues working today presenting LIVE music from the Brit Invasion era as well as his ever growing original music.


Inspiration

  • To John Music is as important as breathing.  A writer, producer, musician and mentor to many fellow musos. Across 5 decades and 2 centuries John is continuosly inspired by LIVE performers of all genres. 


  • Music makes sense in a world in turmoil.

Influence

  • influenced by the blues music of America and the interpretations of the British beat bands. The melodies of Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starr and the sensual appeal of Jagger, Richards and the Stones. Rock and roll is paramount. An essential ingredient to everyone who lived this great era of music. 


  • photo  above is myself, Peter Laffy and Jim Keays. Two Aussie greats, Mates no longer with us. R.I.P.
