About John Zealey

In the artist’s words: Describe one of your earliest musical memories in detail. I've been fascinated with creating music for as long as I can remember, even making cardboard records when I was a kid. When I first got my hands on a tape recorder, my mind was blown. Owning two was a life changer. What are your top 3 all-time favorite albums on Apple Music, and why? Why did you choose these three albums in particular? China Bears, China Bears David Bowie, The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (2012 Remaster) Peter Gabriel, Peter Gabriel 3: Melt (Remastered) I can't really choose a favorite Bowie or Gabriel album - they really inspired a lot of what I do. These albums were literally mind-altering for me. I've added China Bears a) my son is a member b) I think they are one of the best new bands around. Find a song of yours on Apple Music that you love and tell us what makes it special. Tell us why you chose this song. “Cracking” I wrote this in an awful bedsit, flat broke back in the 80, just after meeting my (now) wife. If you look for the video on YouTube, you will see my animation of that miserable room. Brings good and bad memories for me.
