The site has got all your average categories: Photos, biography, news, show dates, forum, and music/film releases. The part that grabbed me most was found in Photos section, a small link entitled Articles. Here there were postings of actual news releases about Johnson from tiny local papers to big magazines. After recording one song that he usually just played for fun on surf video trips with band G-Love, that one track became single hit track from their album. After turning down million dollar record deals to keep his already enjoyable surfing, filmmaking lifestyle, he recorded his first album with a tiny record label.
Look, I wonít go on and on about his story, you can check it out yourself, or better yet get his album called ĎOn and oní. I just reckon itís cool how you can add dimensions to your views of reality by surfing waves of Internet. To find out a little about true identities of people you admire for their achievements is just one small aspect of Internet. Surfís up man! Itís time to ride big, hard to get to waves of our minds.
