Bill Johnston

One of the original partners of the Warehouse sat down with us and revealed his inspiration for opening the venue as well as sharing some of his fondest memories. Thanks so much Bill.

  1. As one of Chicago's Rush Street"Music Rats" of the late 60's I have some inkling of Bill,s inpiration in opening a Rock&Roll venue in New Orleans, one of the great music cities in the U.S. Whereas my musical roots were developed by listening to the Rythmn&Blues artists of the 1950,s broadcast at night by WLAC-Nashville,Tenn.before Elvis became a household word!Bill's tastes were developed by the influences of all the great varieties of music being played in the Fertile Delta of Mississippi and Louisiana.It was a singular pleasure to assist Bill in realizing his dream for New Orleans and a generation of music lovers!
