Another singer that got his start in Asbury Park, is Johnny Lyon, known as Southside Johnny. He started in Asbury Park about the same time as Bruce Springsteen and have been friends and involved with each other in music for all these years. Johnny is also known as the best "white man" of soul music. His band members have come and gone but as a unit they are called The Asbury Jukes. Stevie Van Zandt was a member of the Jukes before he was one of the E Streeters. Southside Johnny can be seen in the movie "Adventures of Babysitting" where he sings one of my favorite songs, "Future In Your Eyes". You also might remember another great of his, written by Bruce, sung with Bruce and Stevie, "It's Been A Long Time". Some other hits of his are: "We're Having a Pary", "Walk You All The Way Home" and "Cadilac Jack". Pictured below are some of his albums. Johnny starts a tour in Europe soon, and will be in concert at Hampton Beach, NH on August 23, 2003 in the Casino Ballroom. Brucefan and Lorrie plan to attend this concert.
