John D.Wyker was one of the most uniquely talented artists that ever lived. He not only was successful in his own pursuit of music but unselfishly embraced other artists as well. Johnny saw the good in everyone and if you had a song to share he would always find a way to get you recorded. Johnny felt that music should be presented freely to everyone. "If they like what they hear ,they will buy your music." He just wanted his music to be heard by everyone. He recorded "Motorcycle Mama" at Widget Studios in Muscle Shoals in 1972. That was the birth of SAILCAT his band. Motorcycle Mama became a top seller and rose to # 12 on the charts. He was signed by Elektra to a contract for a tour and a second album which he never produced because he said, " There are too many snakes in the music biz" and he refused to allow them to destroy him... He was a legend way ahead of his time. All he ever wanted to do was to have anyones music heard! There will never be another Johnny Wyker! Long may his legend live on!
