Johnny Crash was a hard rock band, formed in 1987. Members included former Tokyo Blade singer Vicki James Wright, former Champagne guitarists Christopher Stewart and August Worchell, bassist Andy Rogers, and former Rock City Angels drummer "Punkee" Stephen Adamo.
Their sound was likened to that of AC/DC but with cleaner production. In 1990 the band released their only album, Neighbourhood Threat and toured for a short time with bands such as MÃ¶tley CrÃ¼e and Pretty Maids. The single "Hey Kid" became a minor hit and received some rotation on MTV. However, the album did not sell as well as the band had hoped and guitarist August Worchell quit.
Matt Sorum and Dizzy Reed then replaced Worchell and Adamo, and the band began recording their second album. However, before it could be released Johnny Crash were dropped by their record label, and the band split up.
In 1992, bassist Andy Rogers died of a heroin overdose.
