Daniel Johns is a guitar player. He was born in 1979. He has blonde hair and is 16 years old. One day he heard a song on the radio with a guitar solo in it. He thought it was cool, so he wanted to get a guitar. He didnt get one until about a year later. When he got the guitar Chris Jonnou, Ben Gillies, and he, were bored. So they decided to start a band. When they did they made up a song called Tomorrow. They entered it into a contest that was held in their city.
The judges loved it, so they got to record a single with the song Tomorrow. Their first single. Then they played it on the radio and everybody loved it. Everybody went and bought the single. A music company called Epic records came to them and they signed a record deal. They made their first album Frogstomp. They started to put a band together in 1992. They started in Australia. All of them lived about 5 minutes from each other and went to the same school. They were only 12 and 13 years old.
When they became famous they were only 15, but one of them just turned 16. They just went on their first American tour, but they will be back this year for a cross-country jaunt, opening for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Their first album Frogstomp, at number 9 last week, just went platinum, and their video Tomorrow is in heavy rotation on MTV. Their CD Frogstomp is flying out in stores across the country. But the best thing is that the three of them combined are younger than Mick Jagger.
