Added a section on Johnny Smith guitar models. Respectfully, SamBlob 01:55, 11 December 2006 (UTC)

Hoax?[edit]

At the moment of posting of this note, neither Reuters, nor the Los Angeles Times nor The New York Times (US papers) nor The Guardian or The Independent (UK papers) have made any mention of the passing of Johnny Smith. As the two IPs who have edited the article today have not provided any reference, any such claim violates WP:BLP and should obviously be reverted. --Technopat (talk) 16:46, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Sources are still scarce, but Jazz Guitar Life, used on the Deaths in 2013 page, looks genuine, sadly. Philip Cross (talk) 19:11, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
This page from a Colorado Springs funeral director would appear to confirm the passing of Johnny Smith. ReverendWayne (talk) 19:25, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Discography[edit]

Didn't he also do an album with Beverly Kenney or is that another Johnny Smith? http://www.allmusic.com/album/beverly-kenney-sings-for-johnny-smith-mw0000895130
