John Webb and his family lived in our old Five Points neighborhood in Rockingham off of
Cartledge Creek Rd (formerly the Prison Camp Rd). John has retired now, lives in
Rockingham and has a great talent for songwriting and singing. He writes down to earth
songs about his hometown and experiences he has had during his lifetime. I am sure if you are one of the baby boomers generation, you will remember the times mentioned in John's songs. He has even written a song about current day American Idol performer Bucky Covington's Sweet Tea and Biscuits, beach music and Jacksonville, Fl - a town I lived in for 8 years. Keep checking this website for more songs that John contributes. I hope you enjoy this new addition to Rockingham Memories. Joel Bailey 05/01/06
Singer/songwriter, performer, choir member, band member, sound man. I love everything about music of all kinds. From high school and after for 30 years, I have been performing in one way or another, and writing songs for about as many years for my own pleasure. It is only within the last 5 years
that I have taken my writing seriously.
My first real participation with performing music was in high school. I was a member of the high school chorus, and a member of an elite singing group called the 8 O'CLOCKERS. This group came about as a result of some of the choir members attending a summer workshop on choral music, and upon returning to school, we had the opportunity to perform these songs for the rest of the choir members. My music career was about to take off. Music in high school was my salvation. It was what kept me in school, and it gave me a
purpose.....I LOVED IT.
Because of this opportunity, I developed an interest in education, and subsequently, after high school and college, became a public school teacher for 35 years. It was in 2002 that I retired for the second time, and now, I devote my time to my second career....songwriting.
John's songs can be found on Soundclick.com or on SongRamp.
