Kerry Duane Johnson
What is in a name anyway? I was born Kerry Duane Johnson and had that name until I was 4 days old when I was adopted and it was changed to Donald D. Miller. But no one has called me Donald since I was 4 years old. I’ve always been known as Donnie Miller throughout my entire 40 year career until my latest album (My name is Kerry Duane Johnson) was released. I left home in 1977 at age 18 and toured the U.S. 250 nights a year for the next 10 with 2 groups. “LEOTUS AND THE UNKNOWNS” and “DONNIE AND THE ROCK”. In 1987 I signed with SONY and completed 1 album….”ONE OF THE BOYS” in 1990. In 1992 I severed a nerve and tendon on the palm of my left hand virtually ending my career as a guitar player. After a 4 hour surgery to put it back together Dr.’s said I’d never play the way I had again. They were correct. I started playing the BLUES as a means of therapy and it saved both my life and career.
