I have spent over 50 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. My NEWEST book, "Johnny's Jukebox Word Search: The 60s" has been released and my rock trivia books, “Johnny’s Vintage Rock 'n' Roll Q&A" and "Johnny's Jukebox Trivia” are available along with my two "Paranormal Michigan" books. Make sure you check out my "Haunted Michigan" page found on this site.
