We had the pleasure of interviewing Damon Johnson over Zoom video! 

Damon Johnson has been a triple threat…guitarist, singer, songwriter…since his early days fronting Brother Cane and scoring three #1 singles at rock radio in the 90s (“Got No Shame”, “And Fools Shine On”, and “I Lie In The Bed I Make”).  With that band, he honed his craft with relentless touring and support slots with the likes of Van Halen, Aerosmith and Robert Plant.

Since then Johnson has co-written songs for Stevie Nicks, Carlos Santana, Steven Tyler, and Sammy Hagar. After a short stint working with British vocalist John Waite, Johnson toured the world for several years as guitarist for Alice Cooper and in 2011 he joined legendary Irish rock group, Thin Lizzy.

In 2013 the core of that band morphed into a new group, Black Star Riders, and released three well-received albums. Johnson has had several solo releases since 2010. In 2019 he released, ‘Memoirs Of An Uprising’, on his own Double Dragon Records imprint in 2019.

Damon Johnson recently debut the title track, “Battle Lessons”, from his forthcoming album. Battle Lessons was produced and mixed by multi-platinum producer/mixer, Nick Rasqulinecz (Foo Fighters, Alice in Chains, Evanescence, Rush, Stone Sour and many more) and is due out later this year.
