Danny Johnson


Danny Johnson has toured with Rod Stewart, Rick Derringer, Van Halen and recorded with artists Alice Cooper, drummer Carmine Appice and Fleetwood Mac’s Stevie Nicks among others. He has also written songs for, and played guitar on several movie soundtracks, among them Gremlins II and the smash hit Wayne’s World. His unique combination of blues, rock and roots (which he has termed “psychedelic swamp rock”) has garnered praise from such established publications as Rolling Stone and Guitar World. His current solo effort Over Cloud Nine showcases Danny's vocal talents as well as his instrumental prowess, and delves even deeper into his Louisiana roots.
