Growing up in Victoria, John discovered the magic of the blues when he was attending Mount Douglas High School. During lunch hours, John and his friend Dave McPherson would go home and play old blues records.
It wasn’t long before Dave’s younger brother Norman started to pay attention to John & Dave’s adoration of the music and he to caught the vibe which would be the earliest beginning of Victoria’s legendary original rhythm and blues group “Blues X Five”.
Sadly, John left us on March 14. 2017
