I have spent 55 years as an entertainer: Rock musician/singer, TV host, author, columnist, actor, producer, emcee and radio broadcaster. The 16th U.S. president, Abraham Lincoln, is my cousin. Favorite actors/actresses include: Clint Eastwood, Dustin Hoffman, Johnny Depp, Susan Sarandon and Richard Dreyfuss. As for favorite television shows, nowadays everything on TV stinks (unless it's a historic documentary). Favorite music of all-time includes surf, psychedelia, garage bands, Motown and just plain ol’ good time Rock & Roll. I have eight books out: "Johnny's Jukebox Word Search: The 60s", “Johnny’s Vintage Rock 'n' Roll Q&A", "Johnny's Jukebox Trivia”, "Paranormal Michigan", "Paranormal Michigan 2", "Steve The Cat", "Monster Memes #1" and "Monster Memes #2". Make sure you check out my "Haunted Michigan" page, too!
