Johnny has been a family friend for close to 40 years - he played at our wedding and I will always think of him when I hear Springsteens Hungry Heart - one of the songs he played when performing solo - a good, decent man who we will remember with great fondness- our sincerest condolences to the family and all who were graced with knowing him.
