    Before Whole Lotta Rosie, there was Boney Moroney.

    Sat about 10' in front of him while he played in a small bar in the late 80s. I'll never forget it.

    1st time I saw Johnny was 31 Oct 1982 at the Aragon Ballroom (Brawlroom)
    He was still in possession of his powers

    Saw him perform once at a stadium show (Toronto) way back in the late 70's alongside Ted Nugent and Aerosmith. Those were great years for RnR! Luckily, one of my buddies had a beat up old Impala so we could make it to the big city.

    Oz was lucky to have any major band tour, let alone underpopulated'n'isolated WestOz. Good pub scene in the '70s and' 80s, some kick arse Oz bands regularly visited.
