Earl Johnson Of Moxy Explains Being Replaced By Tommy Bolin On Debut LP (Interview clip #1)
In the mid-seventies Moxy was an up-and-coming force in hard rock in Canada and were starting to make inroads in the U.S. I bought their self title debut album which is sometimes called “The Black Album” when it was first released and saw them in concert with original lead singer Buzz Shearman who died in a motorcycle crash in 1983.
In our exclusive interview with their original lead guitarist Earl Johnson we talked about “The Bolin Incident” where he was replaced by Tommy Bolin as the soloist on more than half of the tunes on their debut album.
Earl Johnson got out of the gate quick he quit school to be a rocker
