Johnny Kray's Bio
Plus a band history
|OK, so people have asked for a
bit more info on us crazy freaks so here we go. Favorite albums. Can's
say I have one because I have a ton of records I love. Old Metallica
is high on the list these days. I love just about everything from The
Jam but the 1st Lp "In
The City" and the 4th "Setting
Suns" are my favorites. The
Ruts Peel Sessions record. The Cro-Mags
"Age Of Quarrel"
is a top for me. Legacy of Brutality
is a Classic to me also (Misfits).
See , there is just too many to out down.
Favorite movie is tough but I would say the Warriors and Escape From New York are my all time favorites. I've read a ton of books, I use to love fantasy and Horror books as a kid. When I was a kid I loved the original Dragonlance "Chronicles "series. One of my favorite novels is William Gibson's "Neuromancer". It's a great novel and details the way the world has actually become as far as computers and stuff. I also love just about every novel I've read by Philip K. Dick. ( And I've read 13 or 14 of his novels ) Right now I'm reading "Again, Dangerous Visions" a collction of short stories editied by Harlan Ellison who is a short story writer I think is great . "Death Bird Stories" is one of his books. Favorite sports team is the New York Mets. I know, they ain't good now but they used to be and they will again sometime. Screw fair weather fans. Mets Rock!! New York Giants on are my football team. Scoty's too.
I also like alot of old salsa music, I guess because my grandfather was a timbale player most of his life and sonce I was a baby I watched him perform and practice. My favorite singer is Hector Lavoe!
What else can I say about myself. Genius comes to mind often. Just kidding! Well I started playing drums when I was a little kid, since I was around 6 or 7 years old. My Grandfather was a salsa timbale player and my uncle is a rock guitar player, so music was always in my life and in my blood.
|That's me rocking out, destined to be a rocker, even since kindergarden. I started playing drums when I was around 6 or 7 years old but didn't get serious till I was about 13 when a friend from elementary school said he could play guitar and wanted to start a band. He had a guitar yes, but he couldn't play it at all. So I borrowd it and learned how to play it. The first song I learned was "For whom the bell tolls" by Metallica. The easy bits anyway. Then I taught him how to play. After a few years I got better and I think I was 18 when I started the Krays with my friend Albee. He use to be a drummer also that learned to play guitar and one of the only musicians around brooklyn at the time that wanted to play punk rock.|
