John fished halibut for 45 years and is presently (by choice) an unemployed truck driver. He played around a bit with music 40 years ago and had not touched a guitar for that time.
A lady friend of the family heard him sing a song and encouraged him to get a guitar and do some practice. He did that in 2000, and with the help of our very own Canadian Country hall of famer, Gary Cooper, he's managed to get his timing in somewhat order and just loves to sing old country songs. Especially Hank Williams stuff.
