Guitars and Vocals

After playing the Sunet Strip for 15 years, John joined Ten Inch Men,
signing with Victory/Polygram along side David Bowie and Tin Machin.e
They toured, opening for Bon Jovi and Extreme. However, with
the Grunge movement affecting the record company's marketing strategy,
they parted ways. Their singer Dave Coutts went on to join the
Stone Temple Pilots' DiLeo brothers in their side project Talk Show.

Since then, John has been honing his writing and recording which
can be heard on iTunes, along with this project. He also currently performs
as James Honeyman-Scott in the Pretenders tribute Contenders.

His release "Blind to Hindsight" received favorable reviews,
reviving the itch to get back to performing his music live.
Now, John is honored and grateful to have Roel and Sammy
as his wingmates in performing live and releasing their first video,
"Heavy Groove Me," with their upcoming release "Wait For Me" in
