Damon Johnson boasts one of the most impressive resumes in rock’n’roll. He first came to international attention in the early '90s as the frontman for Alabama rockers Brother Cane, and when they split after three albums he went on to play guitar with artists such as John Waite, Alice Cooper, Thin Lizzy and the band they morphed into, Black Star Riders. He’s also co-written songs for Stevie Nicks and Carlos Santana, including Santana’s mega hit "Just Feel Better", featuring Steven Tyler.
We talk about all those experiences in this interview – from his days in the clubs around Alabama trying to get a record deal, to what it’s like going on the road with Alice Cooper, Van Halen and Thin Lizzy – as well as his new solo album with his band Damon Johnson & The Get Ready, Battle Lessons.
