Johnnie Rodriguez, Maciunas, Warhol, Rauschenberg, Judd and Pollock

Gary A. Bibb - In addition to inspiring several artists in the 60's, including Maciunas, Warhol, Rauschenberg and Judd (it's also rumored that Pollock crossed paths with Johnnie around 1950 - 52); this phantom of a man was apparently quite a musician too. I have some amazing rare photos of Johnnie playing the guitar and had no idea who he was until Cecil posted this missing persons notice. My photos don't have any information about who this guy is but when I saw Cecil's photo of Johnnie, it all came together. I'm doing research now and have discovered some amazing accounts of his musical adventures...
