Happy 67th Birthday to a drummer who I have known for many years and have seen SO many times. Oingo Boingo was one of my favorite bands to go see back in the 80's. This band was great fun to see live and Johnny Vatos was always a good interview. Danny Elfman was also a good interview, but more serious. John always seemed to appreciate how much fun he was having in the band.
John continues the Boingo beat by leading the "Johnny Vatos Boingo Dance Party" that still tours now and will be in SoCal for several dates in October.
This link is to an interview I did with John a couple of years ago where he talks about his current relationship with Danny Elfman and the establishment of Oingo Boingo Day in L.A. 4/20/16
Below is another interview and some of his current "Boingo Dance Party" band..and Johnny's favorite Boingo song... "Why'd We Come"
