    THE ALEC JOHNSON BAND was a short lived Hard Rock band formed at the dawn of the NWOBHM era by
    journeyman vocalist/guitarist Alec Johnson. By the time of the band's lone release, the 1979 "Busman's

    THE ALEC JOHNSON BAND was a short lived Hard Rock band formed at the dawn of the NWOBHM era by journeyman vocalist/guitarist Alec Johnson.
    By the time of the band's lone release, the 1979 "Busman's Holiday" 7", Johnson had played already with the likes of 100 WATT RABBIT, THE TANGLED WEB, SHABAZZ, SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION, TIME, DESTINY and MAGIC.
    Shortly after the single's release, Johnson was asked by his old friend, drummer Steve Bartley to audition for a new band called NIGHTWING.
    Joining NIGHTWING, the band of former STRIFE guitarist Gordon Rowley (who had produced "Busman's Holiday"), in 1980, Johnson experienced the most prolific period of success of his career to date.
    First album, "SOMETHING IN THE AIR", got the ball rolling for the band, then, in 1981, 2nd album, "BLACK SUMMER", was followed by a European tour supporting GILLAN.
    The band got such a good response they were back in Europe again straight after the GILLAN tour, headlining in eight countries, with "BLACK SUMMER" earning Gold & Silver albums and entering the Top 10 in the album charts of four different countries.
    The band began recording 3rd album, "STAND UP AND BE COUNTED", in November 1982 with MAX BACON as their new vocalist.
    This album reached the Top 10 in Scandinavia, Germany and Yugoslavia.
    Following extensive European, British and American tours, Nightwing recorded their 4th album, "MY KINGDOM COME", with STEVE HACKETT of GENESIS producing.
    The completion of the album marked the exit from the band of Bacon, (who went on to join GTR with STEVE HACKETT and YES's STEVE HOWE) and Johnson.
    In the late 80s and through the 90s Alec continued to write and perform - mainly in a freelance capacity, until in 1994, he joined the reformed HERMAN'S HERMITS (!) .
    In 2001, as well as returning to some solo work, Alec formed PLAIN TRUTH with Steve Bartley, and Chris Alderman who were joined later by world-class bass player Simon Crumley.
    In 2005, Johnson accepted the offer to join reformed prog rock band ENGLAND and has sinced played selected festival dates with the band, who released a new album in 2010 entitled, "Box Of Circles".
