John McCurry: When Accordion Players Go Bad!
Would you believe John McCurry started in music as a young accordion virtuoso? I’ve seen pictures — pretty nerdy (but so cute)! Eventually, the wild side took over. He got himself into a heap of trouble and ended up in the hoosegow. John’s good friend, Joe Pezzullo, presented him with an acoustic guitar to take in with him. So he settled down and taught himself to play. The rest is pop music history.
