I would like to know more about the influence of John’s mother in his music. He mentioned once that she went to see a show by Pete Seeger and she took him along. There was something he discovered there in terms of guitar playing.
What kind of music did his parents play in their house and was it a factor, or not much influence on him?
How did he know at such a young age that he wanted to sing and do records? He mentioned once Shoo Fly Pie that he would sing for his parent’s house guests, I would guess at a young age.
In the book I would like to see the picture of the four brothers when they were young in flannel shirts that John’s people put up on the screen when they did the retrospective slide show at the Canadian shows the last time he was here.
Sometime it would be nice if there was a transcript of the Sirius performance in New York City, but this would be too long to put in the book.
Hey, Queenie. We will likely come to Los Angeles again in the future and we could look you up then and meet to have some lunch and talk about John’s great music.
John’s El Rey Theatre gig was one of the best experiences I have had in my life. We have tickets for Orlando in 2 days but we can’t make it so my niece is going instead. Hopefully John can do a Canadian tour next summer and we can see him then!!!
Just wanted to add that John asked “Who is here?” and we put up our sign and he said, “Oh, Rock and Roll Girl is here and she has the sign to prove it.” And he gave a bow down to the Europeans who had traveled so far. That is just like John to be so appreciative of his fans and that is why we all love him so much!!
