Johnny ‘V’ Vernazza

Multiple Gold recording artist Johnny V’s blues and slide guitar history hearkens from the dynamic San Francisco Bay Area music scene of the 1960s, where he played with such legends as Luther Tucker and Sunnyland Slim and Elvin Bishop. Elvin asked Johnny to join the new band he was putting together , and this association led to six albums, endless touring and the #3 song in the nation in 1974, “Fooled Around and Fell in Love”. That record turned Gold as did an LP with The Marshall Tucker Band that featured Johnny and Elvin on slide guitar . These days, San Diego is fortunate to call Johnny V one of our own, playing with his own band as well as appearing with numerous visiting greats.
