Damon Johnson is my guest today on Talkin’ Rock. Some people know him from Brother Cane, or his time in Thin Lizzy/Black Star Riders, or maybe Alice Cooper. His new album “Memoirs Of An Uprising” is out, and it’s stellar! Go grab it! Damon’s now living in the heart of music in Nashville, so he’s never far from his love. We started out the conversation talking about the new album then went from there…..
