    I just got my copy of the Paul Johnson tribute/fundraiser album, Stand Up Stand For P.J.

    Paul Johnson is a surf guitar pioneer, best known for writing Mr Moto when he was in the Bel Airs. He's released solo albums as well and has played with the Surfaris since 1990. Unfortunately he's been diagnosed with cancer and a group of his friends recorded a tribute album as well played some fundraising shows.


    Teisco Del Rey (Dan Forte) produced the CD and organized the benefit concert.

    Here's his album opener:

    To order a copy for yourself, either send a check for $20 (shipping included) to Dan Forte, 211 W. Columbia St., Weatherford, TX 76086 (make it out to "Dan Forte F.B.O. Paul Johnson"), or PayPal $20 to

    Somehow I missed this post. Paul Johnson contributed a lot, from Mr Moto, which he wrote at the age of 16, to some of his more recent work. I recommend his music wholeheartedly.
