Johnny Colt: At Full Volume

September 09, 2009

It’s not every day that a bass player gets his own show on cable television. Then again, Johnny Colt is not your typical bass player. The self-described “adrenalin junkie,” who’s ruled the low end of such killer acts as the Black Crowes, Supernova, and Train, is now the host of a new show on the Travel Channel, “Johnny Colt: At Full Volume.”

In the show’s pilot episode aired earlier this week, Colt basically traverses the globe and acts like a badass. It was an action-packed hour that saw Johnny traveling through Thailand, free-climbing cliffs, boxing cobras, and getting his butt whooped in a muay thai match. Good times.

I was lucky enough to catch Johnny with the Crowes a few times back in the ’90s, making this new show that much more enjoyable. The dude is the real deal—a modern-day pirate raised on rock & roll. Don’t miss the rebroadcast of “Johnny Colt: At Full Volume” this Thursday (and again next Tuesday) at 11pm on the Travel Channel. In the meantime, check in with Johnny at his blog: Keep it coming, Johnny!  —Brian Fox
