Johnny Barnes sang and played guitar in all of the famous nightclubs in Boston with many of rock and roll’s legends, producing and releasing a dozen records. Local airplay and intense record company interest led to a hit song in England and work with legendary producer, Jimmy Miller (The Rolling Stones, Blind Faith with Eric Clapton, Traffic with Steve Winwood.) Barnes moonlighted, helping manage Boston’s largest live music nightclub, The Channel, where his band opened for numerous major acts through the ‘80’s and early 1990’s. Barnes was a paralegal investigator for law firms, and an operative and operations manager for Boston area private detective agencies. Johnny worked for Massachusetts’s Legal Services, the Mass. ACLU, and was a subcontract homicide investigator for the state’s Committee for Public Counsel. Since 1991 Barnes has been a full time Police Officer for the Rochester Police Department. 


Johnny Barnes has also written three murder mysteries, “Dead Men Talk,” “Sleep When I’m Dead” and “Dead on the Internet” Dead on the Internet is scheduled to publish late in 2006.


According to the book description of Dead on the Internet, “One by one, a group of graduate students working at MIT's Artificial Intelligence Lab are brutally murdered, staged, and set adrift in the Charles River. The floating corpses are sent straight into the heart of Boston by a sadistically warped serial killer seeking control over the development of human-like domestic robots.  The book's oddball Boston detective investigates cutting edge science and mass marketed "living" robots. The players are made up of society's underbelly of escorts, prostitutes, drug dealers, and the sellers of Internet porn.  This modern detective story is not for children.”
