Harper John Biography
JOHN aka JOHN MICHAEL POCOCK - International bestselling author of THE
NOSTRADAMUS BIBLE CODE, THE NOSTRADAMUS CABALA CODE and THE PROPHECIES
OF JOSE RIZAL ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES turns on his wry original songs
- for base thinkers only!
Wrote his first blues song "When
I was a young man" (on the current "BEATING THE BLUES"
offering as it happens) when he was - but didn't even know it was blues
'cos he was too young to know anything of value. Played London clubs
and pubs, even the Harrods annual parade with the BLACKSHEEP in the
glory, pre-STONES, three-chord/four-on-a-good-nite real indie era. Travelled
the world for the next half century searching (though he didn't know
it) for a hero. Came upon the dead Filipino, Jose Rizal, in a spiritual
encounter (check him out on the web) which changed his life and his.
In the past nine years he has authored six published books including
an Asian bestseller, and has played his "bitter-bitta" Hammer-Smash
thinking indie blues and news here and there . . . mainly there. Armed
with a beaten, but not down, vintage classical left-handed (of sorts)
guitar and a clutch of oddball harps, Harper John can't help but letting
the World know what it's all about.
He is seem playing a left strung Spanish acoustic guitar with old strings - no pick-up, just a free-standing condenser mic. Silvertone, Special 20, and Chinese "Hero" harps - yep, and a few other rude sounders.
