Howard "Hojo" Johnson was the Andrew McNiece of Kerrang back in
the early to mid eighties, even before Andrew McNiece was Andrew McNiece!
He was one of the first contributors to Kerrang, before Kerrang became a noisy magazine for spotty oiks instead of "the loudest magazine in the world"

Hojo was a ardent supporter of Melodic HR and Metal way before the web,
before we started calling it Melodic rock, and used to sing the praises
of all melodic metal and hard rock bands like Angel, Sabu,
Alcatrazz (Island in the Sun was a particular fave of his)
Legs Diamond, Baron Rojo, Aldo Nova, etc. If anyone, he must still be
interested in melodic rock in general, so I wonder if anyone can
answer what happened to "Hojo"

And also, what happened to Wimpwire's mighty Derek Oliver? Derek Oliver was a proponent of the light and fluffiness (his words) in Kerrang of eighties bands like Niagara, White Heat, Treat, Da Vinci, Icon, Strangeways, etc.

Those guys were/are legends in history of Melodic rock and deserve a tip of a pint or two.
