Sadly, the original website is no longer in use after Mr Thompson’s passing. But I want to honor his amazing legacy, and now the JohnnyThompsonMusic website is a part of – the top resource for musicians from beginners to pros, providing industry insights, music business advice, instruments, musical gear and technology, marketing, and tips on how to make a living from a career in music.

There are a lot of affinities between my articles and I’m honored to welcome the new visitors and readers.

I also share a lot of the same experiences and knowledge as a musician. Here are just a few worth mentioning:
