John Wesley Myers aka James Leg has been one of the most intriguing garage-rock leaders for years. The first of the more famous bands in which they appeared were The Immortal Lee County Killers, whose breakdown was formed by Black Diamond Heavies in 2004, a trio in which besides him was also an electric piano and vocal guitar player, and a drummer. Guitarist Mark “Porkchop” Holder leaves the band and the remaining 2/3 states that they are thinking how to proceed further where they make a completely correct decision – without a guitar! Until then, there were two bands, but it was always guitars and drums, and with the new Black Diamond Heavies, they introduced a new moment in the formation of the rock and roll band: electric piano / vocals + drums. In that post, they record two studio and one live album (all for Alive Records) and become one of the most sought after US garage attractions by the end of the first decade of the 21st century playing throughout the US, Europe and Australia.
2012 with colleagues from Alive Records label, Left Lane Cruiser, records album “Painkillers”. The ten blues processing (from Robert Johnson to Rolling Stones) played / hearted, garage / blues as expected from this garage super-group made the record at the end of 2012 high on a number of garage / rock / blues list.
In addition to the home theater, James plays his instrument and sings at Cut In The Hill Gang, another important American garage / blues / punk band formed on the Soledad Brothers ash.
In September 2015 he released another solo album for Alive Records called “Below The Belt”.
In 2016, “Blood On The Keys” (Alive Records), the masterpiece of the electric piano, sounds like Hendrix guitar under his fingers.
The macho pianist of the devil’s voice is returning to Belgrade in late January. In addition to the regular repertoire on the set list, there will be a couple of new songs, because the album is being recorded in early March, practically a little after finishing this tour.
The concert will be held on Friday, January 25 at the club “Kuglaš” (Đušina 5) starting at 21:30, and will be hosted by the Belgrade-based raw blues trio Wang Dang Doodle.
