I've always found Johnny to be one of the most interesting human beings I've learned of. I have spent many hours reading books about him and listening to his albums and I can honestly say if I could go back in a time and meet one celeb, he would be it.
He is an inspiration to me, not only as a musician but as a person. Although he had his demons like anyone else, he had a extremely strong faith and accepted people of all walks of life. If you ever get a chance to read deeper into his life story: do it!
