This song was inspired by Hendrix, Morrison, and Janis.
Not sure but thought it was about Jimmy Hendrix. Does anyone know?
Johnny's life passed him by like a warm summer day, if you listen to the wind you can still here him play....

Favorite bad company song by far!!!!
One the great tragedy songs ever on the market. It rocks but makes it's point at the sames time. If you listen to the wind you can still hear him play. What a great line and I do think of Hendrix at this point whether or not it is about him.
