The son of a bus driver and house-wife, Johnny got his first break when he played support to the Rolling Stones in the Adelphi Cinema in Dublin in 1965. Soon he was touring the States performing in such prestigious venues as Carnegie Hall.
The rest is history.
Johnny released his book 'My Songs, My Stories, My Life In Music' last year.
