Howard Johnson

Howard Johnson began his love affair with classic rock when he saw Motörhead at Manchester's Free Trade Hall back in '78. Less than a year later, "HoJo" was producing his own metal fanzine, Phoenix, flogging it in local shops and outside gigs. He began writing for Kerrang! in 1981 and – after a 10-year spell there – went on to edit Metal Hammer and RAW. He has since worked with Iron Maiden's management team, and has also written a book on AC/DC, Get Your Jumbo Jet Out Of My Airport. Howard is the co-founder of Rock Candy magazine, dedicated to classic '70s and '80s hard rock.
