Johnny Favorite backstory update
Johnny Favorite had long lived in the shadow of his legendary Las Vegas crooner father Jackie (The Man with the Golden Voice) Favorite, for years writing, arranging and producing his fathers’ music, while privately grooming his own talent.
Amid the publicity of his famous fathers’ inevitable death he approached record companies with his work securing him a multi million pound contract. He looked like his father, he sounded like his father, and he even wrote music like his father.
Weeks before writing and recording his debut album however he discovered his wife was having an affair with her tennis coach and went through a subsequent swift messy divorce leading to his nervous breakdown. Unfortunately as part of the record deal all artistic control for the new album had been left with Johnny, in his fragile mental state this proved to be disastrous.
It still had the lightweight tunes and easy listening melodies the fans of his father had come to love but lyrically Johnny had gone to very dark place indeed. Hateful, bitter, and more misogynistic than one of Jim Davidson’s stag night bookings.
The album was titled “Want Do You Mean You Sorta Kinda Fucked Him” and revealed in all its shocking glory to record company executives with Johnny performing the opening track “Bitch” live at the pre launch party. Contractually bound to release the album, it was met with all round criticism, the music press sarcastically coining the phrase “The man who writes the songs that make the young girls cry”
