bio:

Progressing from college sophomore to folk-music groupie-worshiper of Tom Rush, Fred Neil, Buffy St. Marie & Bob Gibson in early-60s Miami, John's musical career has been what he jokingly refers to one long, downward spiral to this present time……but we all know differently.  

In the guise of 1/5 of the Ph Phactor Jugband in the 'Frisco of '66, John was present (if stupefied) as an opening act for a number of notable performers- many of them dead- including Frank Zappa, Lenny Bruce, Dan Hicks, The Dead, The Doors, The Quicksilver Messenger Service, Blue Cheer, The Byrds, The Airplane, Lightnin' Hopkins, Mance Lipscomb, Country Joe & the Fish, Art Linkletter, The Congress of Wonders, and others.
