Johnny Preston – Don Woods

Johnny Preston

| Posted in Uncategorized

Johnny was known for his massive 60’s hit “Runnin’ Bear” and he was on the bill of the Bobby Vee shows in New Brighton and Llandudno which I opened on both occasions…he was a quiet gentle guy and we chatted about his long career…a pleasure to have worked with….sadly no longer with us.



This was the guy who WROTE “Hippy Hippy Shake”….the ultimate classic rockĀ and roll song which virtually every group has played and of course was a world wide hit for The Swinging Blue Jeans….Chan made a welcome appearance at one of our weekly jam sessions and was great…has to be one of the nicest blokes in the world…an absolute delight….a legend.
