Greg Gory Johnson (The Fiends, The Worst) - 1968-2009 The Memorial

It was just over a year ago that Greg Gory Johnson, singer for The Fiends, and previously The Worst, suddenly fell ill and passed away suddenly. Everyone close to him was shocked and devastated.

It was the main factor in crashing this blog to a halt for the past while...

A number of radio shows paid tribute to Greg.

I'm posting three podcasts, totalling 5 hours of rare and unreleased Fiends/Worst tracks, road stories and assorted tales of his bands, as well as choice cuts from some of his favourite garage/psych artists...
