Johnny Action Figure is actually some guy called Tom Sharpe. Winding my way through 3 bands and into my fourth full band and with ANOTHER side project, Johnny Action Figure is my solo stuff. I came to the conclusion that I can only really rely on myself to write music that I like. My band experience started in 2000 when I picked up the guitar. I formed Third Degree Burn with 3 friends. That slowly tore itself to unproductive pieces, but it taught me songwriting and I became more active on my own, always wanting to sing, but being shunned... *sniff*. I then got in a strop and took my drummer with me, forming Zubumafu in 2002, mixing with a band called Elysium. We played two gigs with me on bass. I was writing much more now, with my acoustic guitar. Two more bands have been since then, due to singer changes and therefore, sound changes. Infamouse coupled me with Ricky, my writing buddy in Scars for Stars, but that didn't work out with the full band after a single storming gig. I play bass still in that full band, but am concentrating far more on my own writing and Scars for Stars, hence this site... ta da. Long story short.
