From Blind Lemon Jefferson to T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian,
to Eric Johnson, Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughn, and ZZ Top's
Billy Gibbons, the Lone Star State has always been
a hot bed of string bending guitar wizards.
Though he is far too self-effacing to ever put himself
in such august company, John Inmon fits seamlessly
into that six-string continuum.
His peers know John as one of the finest
guitarists in Austin, Texas (and, considering
the competition, that is high praise indeed);
his fans know him as the signature guitar style
that has at one time or another propelled
the music of Townes van Zandt, Ray Wylie Hubbard,
Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, Delbert McClinton,
Marcia Ball, Omar and the Howlers,
the Lost Gonzo Band, Bruce Robison,
Pat Green, Michael Martin Murphy,
Keith Sykes, and most famously,
Jerry Jeff Walker, for over three decades.
