Stuff About Johnny

    Books, books and more books

    We meet at John's Edinburgh top floor apartment in the Georgian New Town where he lives with his artist partner, Dawn. Commanding panoramic views across the west and north of the city, with the Ochil mountains in the distance, it is, by his own confession, a very messy place, in need of a good tidy up, with boxes of books, rolls of tape, bits of paper, envelopes and clutter filling otherwise dusty surfaces. The wood floors are covered in richly coloured ethnic rugs. One room is full of thousands of vinyl records and CDs, another has one wall lined with books. A scatter-gun assembly of volumes from Tom Wolfe and Steinbeck to football biographies

What do you think is your best quality? Sense of humour. When were you happiest? I was happy for half an hour earlier today as I listened to the Black Country Communion live album while drinking some strong black coffee, but it’s a fleeting thing happiness, isn’t it?
