Interview by Alex Stojanovic
Damon Johnson has been a staple in the music scene since the late 80s, having performed, toured and recorded with many different bands like Brother Cane, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy and of course Black Star Riders.
He has also collaborated on albums from not just rock artists, but artists from all over the musical spectrum like Sammy Hagar, Queensryche, Ted Nugent, Carlos Santana, Skid Row, Stevie Nicks and Faith Hill just to name a few. He also has a few solo releases, and goes out and does solo shows where he plays much of the music he's been involved with as well.
We had the great pleasure of speaking to Damon on the phone about the upcoming Black Star Riders tour with Judas Priest and Saxon, how he got started on playing guitar, some of his past projects, the next Black Star Riders album and more.
