Johnny H,
You proved to us in life that even as an underdog you can achieve amazing results.
You had tenacity and belief therefore creating a totally original and working show.
it's a shame you have gone just when you were peaking on top of your personal mountain.
Johnny H you were an inspiration and will be missed.
R.I.P.
Nickolas

If ever there was a hard-working, honest, always-does-his-best performer, it was Johnny H. It's really sad to hear that he's gone. I saw him cranking out some really big, really nice shows up in Edinburgh last year.

thanks for doing us proud Johnny,

Rex

Default in honour

in honour of Johnny H, Stickman took a pineapple to the pitch in Key West to work, and then took it to the pub and he and I toasted Johnny's honour. I had the opportunity to live with jonny at the last fringe festival (06) in edinburgh. To have him die that randomly is a check up from the neck up to me. jonny made me laugh with his very dry sence of humor. he was a god man and will be missed.

Default just found out

I just found out today that Johns funeral was yesterday. I would have been there if I had known in time. John has been a friend for years. We shared a flat one Edinburgh so I got a chance to see how he lived. He was very hard working and very clean living. He also visited us here in the lake district a few years ago.
My family and I will remember him fondly.

Just stumbled on this thread, Im lost for words...

Covent garden wont be the same without John around. He was a sweet guy and helped make my time at the garden what it was.

Gonna miss him. Look forward to having a 1664 for him backstage when Im next in London.
