Little Johnny Coconut: Rocket Ride
Little Johnny Coconut is on tour with his new four-song EP “Rocket Ride!” One of his stops is Honolulu, where he will see his son Calvin for the first time in four years. Calvin’s worried, wondering if Little Johnny will still like him. After Calvin gets on stage with his dad he pretty much knows the answer to that question. Read Calvin Coconut: ROCKET RIDE to see how that all works out. But one thing Calvin and all his friends are sure of is that Little Johnny’s new song “Rocket Ride” is a bazookalolo monster hit!
Little Johnny Coconut: I Love Sunshinepop
Calvin’s dad, Little Johnny Coconut, changed the family name from Novio to Coconut when he decided to give his music a chance. His first single “I Love Sunshine Pop” was a huge success for him, and he went on to fame and more big hits, while playing in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he now lives with his new wife, Marissa and their dog, Chewy. Though divorced, Calvin’s parents get along respectfully and peacefully, happily living their very different lives.
Did you know that I was a world-famous rock star?
Well WORLD and FAMOUS may be pushing it, but … okay, whatever ….
I did some solo recording and also played with the classic rock band Millennium (with Joey Stec, Lee Mallory, Dough Rhodes, Ron Edgar, Michael Fennelly, and Curt Boettcher), the Ballroom, and Sagittarius. (I’m in the front of this photo)
From what I’ve heard of the sunshine pop of the 60s, the Millennium’s Begin could very well be the pinnacle of the genre.

About my solo album Sandy (my nickname!)…
Musically, the album is luminous, hallucinatory, and full of typically cherubic sweetness… simply joyous and celebratory, nowhere more than on the bouyant cover of the Beach Boys’ “With Me Tonight” (renamed “On and on She Goes”)… Salisbury’s performance is just as bouyant and accomplished throughout, and if it threatens to burst the album at its seams, it is also what makes this such a satisfyingly unforeseen delight.
