Hello Mr. John I overheard on "" your wonderful song "Je T'aime Tres Fort Turia". I must really make you my compliments. It 'a very beautiful song, with a fantastic rhythm and sounds very special and sought after. These sounds are a dream. The use of the Brian Moore guitar is fantastic. I wish I had the chords (chords) of this song if it were possible. Even though I tried, I just can not understand them. They are too difficult for me. Where can I find them? They are available? Would you ever to play in Italy? Congratulations again and thank you for your beautiful music. Livio F. Felli text translated by Google translator

Hi John...i want to hear your music.
John, We love your music, and this makes us so very proud of our Chamorros. Your music makes us lonely for our beautiful Island. We only left 6 years ago and its good to hear your music. We love you, coming from all my family here in Killeen, Texas. Thomas and Francis Crisostomo
Aloha....good stuff John, caught Coco Joe's post from 7/12 and what a flash back. Hangin' at the Yard, v-ball with the family bbq with the likes of Cre-man, Crazy Eddie, AJ, Coco Joe, Lyle, Lerch and a crew of surf crazies. Miss the old days. Good luck on ya...good seein' your post Joe, rip 'um brah Hafa to AJ.
Hey Braddah!! Me & Albert Juan are going next year to Oahu. Hopefully I can see you next year if I make it. I wish I could go this year. I think Pascal Nelson is back there. He told me if he ever goes back to the island, he'll be divorced, cuz his wife wouldn't want to go back. That's the last words he told me. I told him I definitely wouldn't want to divorce the great ocean, and what it has to offer.. haha. We both laugh, but after that, we looked at each other really sadly. I love those two brothers(Pascal & Mike), they were like my brothers, it goes to you too. I really miss you guys and the fun times we've had. Remember my Tom Parrish yellow stick? The first wave at Waimea it got loose from my leg and went in on shore, I had to swim for it. REALLY REALLY scary!! But I can never forget ripping Castles and No Place surf spots and also Kaisers. Those guys asked Pascal who I was, They said I was hot. And Pascal goes,"he's from Guam", the guys said "those Guamanian Guys are pretty good" haha.. Although I can never forget JOHNNY BOLT, he can blow you away when it's BIG!!! Yeah bolt??? So catch one for me Bolt!! I'll be with you in the future with Albert Juan! Braddah, Keep in touch!! Oh, by the way, Magandas is closed for good since the last 9/11 the terrorist bullshit!! If I ever met one, I'll make him pay for me missing my spot!!! Willy Byerly is trying to get a lawyer and to get us surfers to surf there. Aloha!!! Si Yu'os Ma'ase!! Mahalo!! SHAKA SI CHAKA!!! haha...
Si Yu'os ma'ase', John, ni' kantan WAKE me UP gi fino'Chamoru!! adios yan Biba Chamoru!
Johnny, Hope to see you in CT.! Love your music man! Will you be singing in CT.?
Hey Bolt!!! I received your CD.. .AWESOME BRAH!!!! Keep up the good work man!! One day it'll pay BIG!! Have you been surfing?? ALOHA & SI YU'OS MA'ASE PRIMO!
Cool site.
John, love the tunes...nice variety. If you know Mona Roberts (physical trainer) in Guam send her a Island love song from keep it got a fan from Maryland USA. love to hear you in person. Rich
just dropping by to say aloha, hafa adai and love yah!
cool site. i like how you did your videos..its a movement..i was moved..i'll tell you that.
It's me! KoKoMo/coco joe. I got your website while browsing. I saw some great pictures that brought back great memories. Me, you and Pascal Nelson. I haven't consistently been surfing due to building my house and just busy working. I'm about to go back consistently to surf again. I've been watching alot of surf movies and we'll be doing it out in the ocean. I've been watching Dane Reynolds. The last time I was surfing, I was doing aerials and 360's alot. You know it's like riding a motorcycle, it's a piece cake. Anyways I'm married have 2 girls and a grandson. It hasn't really been good surf on Guam like it used to be. The reef must be growing, or else Guam is sinking. I do miss Oahu and Cali also. I surfed ocean beach San Francisco, fort point, and Pacifica. But I don't miss full wet suits at all. Can you send some pictures of Tahiti to me? Say hi to your wife for me. I will get back to you ASAP. Gonna go snore for now... Aloha and Mahalo and Melekalikimaka Brah... and Wahoo from Guam. By the way, talk to you latah... Adios Che' lu. P.S. Send me a C.D. of your latest songs.
Johnny, I have listened to a couple of your songs on the new album and they are very good and I will be buying the CD. I hope to talk to you soon. I hope your new CD is a great success. Charles

I'm totally blown away by your web page. And your photos of Guam's surf...BREATHTAKING! The shots of you at Merizo and Boat Basin are priceless, but what grabs me most is the photo of Mike Appleby in Merizo. I'd love to be able to purchase a few if it's possible. Warmest regards, Erica
my dad used to live in guam and surf when was young and my age... i have a picture from 60's that i want to see if you know where it is at... It appears to be a very distinctive spot. can you help me with it?
im just intrigue- are you a filipino? why do u speak tagalog? hehehehehe
hi, am a filipino!!! listening to your sample music makes me wanna fly to guam to get a copy of your album..... I just love the rhythm and the style. Invade the philippines!!!!!
Johnny; I was googling through the internet, and came upon your web page. Nice stuff! Real cool pictures of Guam surf life in the 70's. I graduated in '79 at GW, and have lived on Guam since. Way to bring the Chamoru spirit out to the other parts of the world! Keep it up! Warm Regards, Joe John

Hey John just checked out your surfing pix in the gallery. You're the man!
Would anyone have the translation for his remake of the song "Te Vahine Tahiti"? I've been looking all over and can't seem to find an English translation. TIA, mahalo, and maruuru roa!
Maayo and Mabuhay! Dude, you're living my dream--playing lead guitar, surfing, recording and winning the heart of a beautiful island girl. As a music reviewer and fellow "guitarista" i can rightfully say you put in a lot of love and native pride in your performance..and i'm not saying that just because we share the same last name! Hope to see you in Reno!
John, the lyrics are great. I can't download the sound, tho. I can only imagine listening to it. Great work, bro. congratulations! Chelu Tony
