  1. Fascinating - well done. Years ago I borrowed Johnny Guitar's diaries and the contents are on my website - www.spencerleigh.co.uk - and they were hard to read because he had such spidery handwriting.It does include his comments on some of the gigs (and on some of the girls who were present). It would be worth checking the two lists.
