When the Black Crowes broke big in 1990, all of a sudden everything old was new again and again and again as retro became vogue in rock….and remains so to this day.
An entrepreneur, radio / digital media host, among other endeavors – the bassist born Charles Brandt skillfully plied his craft on a variety of instruments (vintage Fenders, Ampeg, Gibson basses) for the Crowes in the tradition of the British rockers that profoundly influenced the Marietta, Georgia quintet. Colt was given to groovin’ in-the-pocket and punctuating the brothers Robinson with occasional counter-melodies delivered with a gritty tone.
An affable chap and versatile player, Johnny’s enjoyed continued artistic and commercial success following his split from the Black Crowes with his trio Brand New Immortals, along with Train, Rock Star Supernova, and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others.
