That was me... that was me!!!! I love that man!! I will be doing some searching for her today on YouTube or something. Does anyone (PM, Soda?) know if she is still on there or not? What's her status and does she have the talent her big brother does?

Here's a little something I found about her and I think, from what I am seeing, she is still in, right?

She looks to be a little red head (which I'm a little partial to). Cutie!



And here's big brother.

I am terrible with names and don't remember her face, but I'll be on the lookout now!

Ooh, at the risk of robbing the cradle, he's HOT! I guess now I am also interested to hear him sing! I'll be looking for her as well. I don't recognize her, but I only saw about 3 audition shows...where is she from?

EV-Now you went and got me started!!! Here's a brief Jonny history:

He was 13 when his first album was released and 14 when his first single hit the charts called Lie To Me--they called him "the 14 year old with the 20 year smoking habit" because of his voice.

He just turned 28 on January 29th. And yes he is hot---then he opens his mouth and you just want to melt because of that voice.

Here are a couple of YouTube videos but check out more of his stuff if you like a deep raspy voice like his. That is why you find him in the #1 spot on this list for me! And can the man play a guitar? AMAZING!!

Try these out!

Remember he was only 14 when he recorded and did this video. Lie To Me It will amaze you!
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DayCrQWJXuI

He redid the Stones song-Paint It Black
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHMmk...next=1&index=8

This one is very recent Give Me Up Again
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uihnK...ext=1&index=34

Here is my favorite!!--not the video but the audio for it Still Raining-amazing guitar and voice here!!

Back to this topic because today is the 12th anniversary of the death of one of my favorite singers. Most of you know about my other obsession of Sweet--the lead singer Brian Connolly died 12 years ago today at the age of 52.





Here's a sample of his beautiful voice!

Willie, I have to thank you for reintroducing me to Johnny. I was a fan of his for years, since that little 14 year old kid did Lie To Me, I went right out and got his CD, and since reviewing these videos, I've broken out my Johnny Lang CDs and Im 'podding him as we speak *G*

He did "Lie to Me" at 14? Well, whaddya know!

TBF - what a shame for that terrific voice to be silenced so relatively young!
