Johnny Bluth was born on October 9th, 1980 in Nürtingen/Germany and grew up in a one horse town (Schlattstall/South Germany) with 120 habitants. As a child he always heard people saying “You’re nothing but trouble!” This gave the name Johnny Trouble in 1997. He bought his first guitar at the age of 13. At this time his only interest was making music. Schoolwork and marks slowly turned bad because his guitar seemed to be more important. The last years at school he became absent and they kicked him out. At that time he already had a couple of bands and played several small gigs.

 His musical tastes had already started by the age of 7, he had heard Johnny Cash for the first time and after some tastes in punk, blues and folk he came back to country and rockabilly in 2000. Wylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Horton, Marty Robbins, Kris Kristofferson were his heroes. The influence of blues, punk, rock and folk still where entrenched. Furry Lewis, Fred McDowell, Howling Wolf, Bob Dylan, Guns 'N' Roses, Billy Idol, Bruce Springsteen, Social Distortion, US Bombs...

After his father died he struggled around with different jobs trying to make a living. Landscaper, carpenter, removals and so on, but he always wanted to make his living with music.

 In 2002 he first met Tall Tony and his doublebass…2 weeks later bluesharp-player White Dynamite joined them. Johnny wanted to work out a couple of songs with these guys and was looking for a room to practice. But they persuaded him to play on street corners…So here they where, busking almost every day and making good money with it. The problem was that they spend all the money on booze in Stuttgarts nightclubs and music-pubs...
