Johnny Jukebox has smashed his last Telecaster through the television screen.

Best known for his 1974 jazz funk classic Expansions, keyboardist Lonnie Liston Smith has played with some of the mightiest artists of our times including Miles Davis, Pharoah Sanders, Art Blakey, Marvin Gaye and countless others.
