Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, Johnnie Latham, who was inspired by B.B. King and Eric Clapton, started playing guitar on April 1st, 1967, at the age of 15.

In 1971, he started playing with his first rock & roll band. But by the late 70's he rediscovered his passion for the blues and started Johnnie Red & the Roosters, backing up Robert Ealey and Ray Sharpe.

Over the years his band has played with Tina Turner, Chuck Berry (4 times), Buddy Guy, John Mayhall, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Delbert McClinton, and many more.

After 40 years with the Roosters, he still plays with the same passion and energy as when he started the band in 1980.
