If Tom Petty, Muddy Waters, Clint Eastwood and Tim Burton formed a band, according to the DallasObserver.com, you’d have something close to Johnny Chops & The Razors. When he isn’t holding down a solid groove playing bass or writing the occasional song for the Randy Rogers Band (Last Last Chance, Wicked Ways, 10 Miles Deep), Johnny Chops is charting his own path through the muddy waters of a soul soaked, roots-rock revival. His latest album, 2018’s self titled “Johnny Chops and the Razors” received rave reviews for its “reckless, tumescent sensuality” [SeattlePi.com] and it’s “eclectic mix of vintage tones, guitar fuzz, upbeat rock n’ roll boogie and mellow blues.” [galleywinter.com].
