How I Became Darkside Johnny

We are like those who, though beholding frequent flashes of lighting, still find themselves in the thickest darkness of the night.

My brief bio. It's not a long story, although it was years in the makings. A storm of darkness had been brewing in my life for a while, eventually overwhelming me. Then I thought of a quote I had come up with around 2008 as a tagline for my (now defunct) Yahoo 360 tagline:

The Candle Flame of Thought Shines Its Brightest in the Dark

In 2011 I decided to reinvent myself on the web as prior to that, I had no real web presence. I needed a new screen name. Combining the dark cloud that was still enveloping me and my love of Pink Floyd, I came up with the name, Darkside Johnny. It was available as a username on Twitter and as a dot com domain. Seemed like providence.

They know not, neither will they understand; they walk on in darkness.

I also created a YouTube channel and after a long break, I started playing guitar again with backing-tracks. It made me feel like a studio musician!

Having to come up with a title for the song I also started explaining the title in the video details and it seemed like a story was beginning, which influenced the next title. The process continued and a story did emerge, of a man that didn't wake up on the wrong side of the bed, but the dark side of it! I see now, that metaphorically, that man was me.
