Who is RAGTIME JOHNNY?
Ragtime Johnny (Member of Ragtime Rebellion) is the cousin of legendary outlaw country songwriter/musician, Johnny Crashed. They have not spoken in over twenty years as a result of Ragtime Johnny seducing one of the "wives" of Johnny Crashed during an LSD/Ecstasy binge at Open Sky Farm. While Johnny Crashed spend an inordinate amount of time smoking weed, Ragtime Johnny prefers the bottle. While Johnny Crashed looks to his heroes like David Allen Coe, Bob Dylan, Todd Snider, Chuck D. and Ferron for his songwriting inspiration, Ragtime Johnny looks to Andrew Loyd Webber, Stephen Sondheim, Cole Porter, and Hoagy Carmichael.
