Official JJ JOHNSON thread (on JJ Johnson himself).

Post by InSight. on Sat Jun 20, 2009 6:48 am

You know, for a JJ Johnson forum, it really has a limited amount of chat specifically of him himself.

So here’s the Official JJ JOHSON thread (on JJ Johnson himself).

So feel free to add and contribute. I’m just posting some pictures for now. But feel free to add things such as tour dates, new set-ups, thoughts, News, photo’s, links etc!

Mod edit- This thread will stay on topic and it will not run its course. So keep it JJ related please. We have a chat thread for chat.

Yeah, his set-ups always look so comfortable and playable. A real 'groove' set-up (IMO).

This thread makes me laugh.

but, both times i've seen John Mayer, JJ has been on it, he doesn't miss a beat, and he's really visually appealing to watch. he doesn't look bored, you can tell he truly enjoys what he is doing.

but on the argument that JJ plays just like steve, I don't buy it.
They are both pretty different imo. It shows on WTLI. JJs belief drum intro on that dvd is something I don't think we'd hear steve play. and his fills on 'i don't trust myself' are very unique imo.

opinions? thoughts?

I'll agree, they don't play the exact same. They are similar, but not the same. I think part of the similarity is due to the fact that JJ's most well known playing, is with JM, and steve wrote a lot of the parts for those songs, and while JJ doesn't play exactly what the songs have recorded, he plays stuff that is quite similar most of the time, which makes it appear that steve and jj play mostly the same stuff.

know what i mean?

i haven't really listened to doyle much, i don't really like his vocals that much, i know, i'm lame.


a lot of times when folks say stuff like that, they don't factor in all of steve's work, he has what very well may be the most impressive resume in the business.

It's very tough to play 'like' someone, you can try, but your personal style always pushes through.

Also, it's true. The other Official JJ thread went straight into drum discussion. So yeah, this will actually stay on topic. Won't it mods???

Yes it will or BANS will be issued and the thread will be closed, then Derek will raid your house of all valuable possessions! hahaha

I crossed out the last part but 'the cheese burned me' so i left it in.
