There are actors who can act, musicians who play, then there are the rare breed of artists who bring passion to their art. Those are the ones that go deep into the darkness, they avoid the obvious, and explore the unknown. They work in the backroom of the soul, and that takes guts. Johnny is a gutsy actor, a gutsy musician, and a gutsy artist with passion. We admire his artistic courage and we are honored to present him with the 2012 Generation Award.” - Joe Perry
