Tom Johnston net worth: Tom Johnston is an American musician with an estimated net worth of $10 million dollars. Born in Visalia, California, Tom Johnston fell in love with the sound of R&B, when he was a child, and began playing guitar when he was twelve. He formed his first band two years later, and began performing in earnest while living in San Jose and finishing college. He first began to gain recognition performing with the band he co-founded called, Pud. Pud eventually added new members, and became known as The Doobie Brothers. The Doobie Brothers went on to record numerous successful tracks. Mr. Johnston experienced serious health issues in the mid-70s, and was forced to leave the band. After he recovered, he worked as a solo artist, and released two albums. He also toured with the band, Border Patrol, and recorded a song for the "Dirty Dancing" soundtrack called, "Where Are You Tonight". He rejoined The Doobie Brothers in the late 80s. They continue to perform and tour together.
Tom Johnston (born Charles Thomas Johnston, August 15, 1948, Visalia, California) is an American musician. He is a guitarist and vocalist, and co-founded The Doobie Brothers with drummer John Hartman, guitarist Patrick Simmons and bassist Dave Shogren.
Johnston's favorite music as he grew up included Little Richard, Bo Diddley, Elvis Presley, James Brown, and other rhythm and blues artists featured on the radio in the 1950s. At the age of twelve, he took up guitar following the stylings of Freddie King and Chuck Berry, and had formed his first band by age fourteen. In his early career he played in a variety of bands, including a Mexican wedding band that played half soul and half Latin music. His interest in rhythm and blues led to his singing in a soul group from a neighboring town and, eventually, his own blues band.
Johnston moved to San Jose to finish college and started playing in bands around town. It was here that he met Skip Spence, a former drummer with Jefferson Airplane, and founding member of a group that had a major influence on the Doobie Brothers - Moby Grape. Spence introduced Johnston to John Hartman. Johnston and Hartman soon formed their own band, Pud, featuring Greg Murphy on bass. Pud played many clubs in and around San Jose, including the Golden Horn Lounge in Cupertino, California, which no longer exists. Murphy was soon replaced by Shogren, Simmons was recruited, and Pud gave way to the Doobie Brothers.
Johnston wrote and sang many of the Doobie Brothers' early hits, including "Listen to the Music," "Rockin' Down the Highway," "China Grove," and "Long Train Runnin'." He also sang the hit song "Take Me in Your Arms" (written by Holland-Dozier-Holland).
In December 1973, the British music magazine, NME reported that Johnston had been arrested in California on a charge of marijuana possession.
Following years of road touring lifestyle and health challenges, Johnston became severely ill and was hospitalized on the eve of a major to
