Johnny Pierce: November 30, 1953 - December 12, 2005

Johnny Pierce was a longtime friend to Jimmie, and bass player for the band on albums and tours from 1973 to 1980. This memorial wing in the gallery about his work with Jimmie includes a wealth of rare photos and stories.

Johnny passed away on December 12, 2005, after a long struggle with cancer. His inspiration and tireless support made the CD restoration of Jimmie's work possible. This website owes much to him. He is much loved and much missed.
