Bravo Johnny!

RIP, Johhny. Lost another one of the greats.

Sorry to hear you left us, Johnny.
This takes me back. I had just arrived in Miami in 1984, from England and years of riots there. All my new artist friends told me about Charlie Pickett and the Eggs but I never did catch them, so they were a true legend to me. I moved into Graduate Student Housing on Ponce de Leon at the University of Miami and had my first physical experience of American segregation. A million miles away in Coconut Grove behind a solid police cordon, riots took place. I watched the smoke from my window.
