These pages are the first ones I created for this whole gig review site. Much of the material used here was moved over onto the official John Young site ( http://youngjohn.co.uk/ ) during the summer of 2000. Since then I have helped maintain that site and a lot of the reviews I would have used for this site appear there. ILinks on a place/venue are to reviews on this site. Links on a date should open another window to a review on the above site.  Some may have both and in that case the one on this site and will be an expanded version of the youngjohn one.

Though not a household name John has played with some impressive people, John Wetton, Carl Palmer, Paul Rodgers, Uli Jon Roth and Bonnie Tyler to name but a few. He has helped write songs for Max Bacon, John Wetton, Asia and QANGO (his current band project).

The big news is that you can hear some of John's music, care of MP3 technology. Find the links on the  Discography page. John has given me his permission to provide these tracks. If you enjoy them then buy the CDs!

As well as playing solo shows John was also a member of QANGO (with Carl Palmer and John Wetton) and Fish (on the Fellini Days album and tour). He is also second keyboard player and vocalist with the reformed GREENSLADE.
