Evan Johns

The Austin Chronicle catches up with ailing guitar man Evan Johns, who's still fighting the good fight despite some pretty major setbacks.  I was lucky enough to see him onstage a bunch of times in the 80s and 90s, first with the LeRois Brothers and later with his own band, Evan John & The H-Bombs.
