Johnny Gonken ||    External Homepage ·  Blog · 

Deviation from the norm is frequently criticized, sometimes hated. But Johnny Gonken doesn't care. He's confident in his highly original music/art. He has a mark to make on the world and he's busy carving it in. His art can be seen as a reflection of the hypocrisy of the music industry. The unsigned independent who steps off the beaten path is written off as nuts. But the same wacko who makes it is praised for his forward-thinking art and music. “There's a fine line between genius and insanity,” Gonken says. “That line is fame. If you're underground, people call you crazy, but if you're famous, you're regarded as a genius.”
