Since the late 1980s, John has written extensively on music, most notably for Dirty Linen (which is sadly no more) and Atlanta's Creative Loafing. His first published piece was an obit of Ewan MacColl for the former, in late 1989.

His writings on music span many genres, from rock to Celtic, and from Algerian, Brazilian and Cuban (Creative Loafing, 2001) to Yugoslavian and Zimbabwean (Creative Loafing, 2003).
