Here's a list of Johnny's gigs that I've got on record. Please add any missing that you know about, or comment on your memories of any particular gig.
Just looking at the site, there was a Rochester, NY gig on March 9, 1991 with the Chesterfield Kings. There were also a few NYC dates before that. The Rochester gig is important because it was the last gig on US soil. Also, Johnny did some recording at GFI Studios near Rochester before he left for Japan. I have recorded there and seen the master tapes (which are being held up in legalities still because several mothers of Johnny's children are fighting for them). I don't see these recording sessions listed anywhere on the site and wanted to alert you to them. I belive the single released was called "Critic's Choice" with a B side of another recording of "Endless Party". This was released in Japan, I believe.

I believe Johnny´s last New York show was an unannouced gig around March at The Pyramid Club in the East Village. I saw him play an acoustic set with some chick back up vocalists and a sax player. Johnny needed money and his friend Jack Tragic arranged the gig. There were maybe 25 people there.
Actually this is erroneous (yet another internet falsehood) information, he actually performed in New Jersey with Jamey on March 21, 1991...
Johnny was playing in Berlin in April 1991
Jonny def played in Berlin in April 1991, cos i was in a band that played at the same club that night. It was called the 'Ecstasy Madhouse' and he was in pretty bad shape, took a while to get him on stage and once there, he struggled to play as a guest guitarist for a german rocker called 'the cat', i think. It was pretty sad to see actually, although he did have brief conversation with our drummer, jase which made us laugh... Jase asked him how you got downstairs, to which he paused and responded...' Well, i guess you walk!'Made us laugh anyway....
I remember seeing Johnny at the "Ecstasy" with an american guy who lived in Berlin called Sugar Daddy
Sugar Daddy backed Johnny on the bass, then I endedup playing the bass for him
