#141 Today’s Boondoggle- with Song Writer, Producer, Musician Johnny “Not so Evil” Sustar


In this episode Bill catches up with his old friend John Sustar, formerly Johnny Evil. We talk about his early days playing Go Go Music in a mostly black Maryland High School, to playing in Methane and Basement Love Underground in Cleveland, the challenge that took him from guitar into music production and song writing, creating Ventana, facing some of the obstacles and ugliness of the music business but using it as fuel to network his way into bigger things. We also talk about his work with Twizted, Motionless in White, and how Barbara West saved his ass, his part in Astronomicon, what happened to the Beetlejuice Video, as well as the positive influences in the industry that continue to believe in and support his passion, Nita Strauss, plus so much more.
