John Russell – lead & slide guitars; a wonderful guitarist/musician.


John started playing in the late 60’s, early 70’s and achieved some success initially with a band called Flake who had a hit with “This Wheel’s on Fire” (during the record ban era). They followed this up with a couple of other singles that did quite well.

John went on to play with Black Feather, Jeff St John, Phil Keyes’ Band of Light and BB Strut. A master of lead, slide and dobro guitars, John is also a very fine songwriter and master of the double meaning, although the smut is all in the mind of the listener.
